Amplified Leicester

Amplified Leicester Logo

Amplified Leicester is a city-wide experiment designed to boost the innovation capacity of Leicester and share new skills which are fast becoming essential in 21st Century workplaces and communities.

In 2009/10 we offered a small group of participants from across the city the chance to:

• Benefit from Leicester’s huge diversity of people and cultures
• Generate new ideas quickly
• Think like a futurist and see the bigger picture
• Organise and collaborate better
• Be persuasive in different social situations
• Share and develop creative ideas
• Manage the stream of information which bombards us every day
• Choose the best people to collaborate with
• Make the most of different kinds of resources – social, economic, creative

On Thursday 15 April 2010 we will showcase their work and expand the conversation to include the city and beyond.

If you are using social media tools to report on the day remember the hashtag is:
