Wall of Ambitions - Whitehawk

IMG_4118.JPG

Ambigo takes you closer to the life you want.

At the Co-op on Whitehawk Rd in Whitehawk, we'll be helping people to help you make your goals, ideas or ambitions happen.

You're invited to write down something you'd like to do onto paper. It can be about any area of your life - a new hobby, improve your wellbeing, start a new career, develop a project for your community. You'll stick it onto our wall.

Other passersby will then add post-it notes to your sheet with useful info, contacts, advice and other support.

It's easy, no pressure and free.

And, we’ll also be gratefully accepting a big, novelty cheque from the Co-op’s Local Community Fund as we celebrate their terrific support over the last year.

See you then, AmbiFriends! :-)

Ambigo at The Brighton Summit 2018

Screen Shot 2018-08-27 at 18.33.20.png

***EVENT FOR ATTENDEES OF THE 2018 BRIGHTON SUMMIT - 'LOOK UP'***

Click here for tickets: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/brighton-summit-look-up-tickets-45027781306

Do you have a problem to solve in meeting your business or personal goals? It might be meeting the right clients, getting the right marketing support or reaching to the next level. 

Our fun, structured networking will help you find the solutions you need – through just one resource – people, and one mindset – asking for and sharing knowledge.

HOW IT WORKS

Firstly, you will sit in sets of three, telling your group about who you are, what your business goals are and the help you are looking for. Others will listen and ask questions to really get to the bottom of what you need, as well as your motivations to get where you want to be. You will then write down your goals and put it on a wall. All attendees will walk around the room, look at each other’s goals and chat to people and offer/discuss ways to help.

As a result, you will meet lots of people in a friendly and supportive environment, gain advice, contacts and help for your business and learn and share with likeminded people. This is suitable for entrepreneurs and small business leaders. You can share and learn from others – networking at its best.

(Venue will be wheelchair accessible)

Ambigo Introductory Event

https_%2F%2Fcdn.evbuc.com%2Fimages%2F44334551%2F196134814905%2F1%2Foriginal.jpg

A FUN AND FREE EVENT TO SUPPORT YOUR COMMUNITY ORGANISATION

Click here to get your free ticket

This event is for community organisation leaders. It's people in Brighton & Hove doing good stuff in the community coming together to...

  • connect with other leading community groups in a fun way and share support towards your organisations' ambitions...
  • learn how Ambigo could help the people you work with feel purposeful, fulfilled, and valued by their community as a unique individual rather than seen through the lens of prejudice
  • AND have an inspiring Monday afternoon with free biscuits...!


But, who are we?

We’re Ambigo - a new non-profit in Brighton. We bring people together to achieve their ambitions. We’re eager to collaborate with community groups like yours to increase interest and involvement in your activities, help you learn to a deeper level about the people you work with want, and add to the benefit they receive.
 

What do we do?
We hold fun and inspiring community-powered events where people share info, advice, contacts and ideas to support each other's ambitions.


What's Ambigo's Purpose?
To bring people across Brighton & Hove together to empower each other to achieve whatever is personally fulfilling for them. We generate better community cohesion, as people from diverse backgrounds learn about others as unique individuals. People quickly enjoy supporting each other instead of seeing others through the lens of preconception/stereotype.
 

The Invitation
Come and experience a live demonstration of what we do: a carefully designed, fun workshop where you’re able to share your organisation’s ambitions with other community groups in Brighton & Hove. They will share their knowledge/resources/support to help you achieve them. 

You'll learn first-hand how collaborating with us will benefit you and those your organisation serves. As with all our community events, we don't charge participants. This is a free event!

Ambition Ignition - Brighton - Brighthelm Centre

(Doors open at 18:30 for a PROMPT 19:00 START)

WHAT IS AN AMBITION IGNITION EVENT? 

It's a fun and inspiring community-powered event that brings people together to achieve their ambitions! 

People from across the community come together to share info, advice, contacts and support so we have more tools and confidence to achieve whatever it is we want to do!

INTERESTING…WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?

It’s so simple. These are the 3 main steps:

1) We share our ambitions with a partner

2) We write our ambitions down on a piece of paper and also what we need help with. We stick it on the wall. 

3) We walk around the room, reading each other’s ambitions. When we have some info, advice, an idea or a contact that might help someone's ambition, we jot it down on a post-it note and stick it on their ambition sheet.

AMAZING! WHAT KIND OF AMBITIONS ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

It can be anything! Anything at all that leads you to greater personal fulfilment. People come with ambitions like:

•  Create a board game
•  Start a fashion business
•  Work out what my passion is
•  Be more courageous
•  Record an album 

I WANT TO COME! HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

We charge no entry fee! We run on a 'Pay What You Can' basis.

I’M EXCITED!

So are we! Not only is every event great fun and really uplifting, but it could be genuinely really helpful for your ambition.

Don't let your friends miss out...tell them to come too! And, if you don't have an ambition in mind, but still want to come and help others, please do!

Go here for a full FAQ, which answers questions like "Will there be people trying to sell me things?" (Clue: Absolutely not!).

Like us on Facebook and let us know you're coming by confirming on Facebook or Meetup...or send us a quick message on our contact page. 

Can’t wait to see you there!

Ambition Ignition - Brighton - Brighthelm Centre

Screen Shot 2017-09-07 at 10.20.32.png

Mon 9th Oct.
Doors open 18:30 for prompt start at 19:00. Ends at 21:30.
Brighthelm Centre, North Rd, Brighton, BN1 1YD (Map)

Confirm your place at one of the links below or go to our contact tab at the top of this page:

~ AMBIGO BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER TO ACHIEVE THEIR AMBITIONS ~

Think of an ambition you have. Something you'd really like to do, or be, or have...Got one...?

Now, have you been dreaming about this mostly alone? Then how would it feel if you experienced a community coming around to support this ambition so they could help you get closer to it? Come and find out!


~ WHAT HAPPENS AT AN AMBITION IGNITION EVENT? ~

Come along and share your ambition with friendly, supportive people from across the Brighton area in a positive, safe and chilled environment. We write our ambitions down on a piece of paper and also what we need help with. We stick them on the wall.

We then walk around, looking at each other’s ambitions. When we feel there’s some info, advice, an idea or a contact we can offer that might help that person, we jot it down on a post-it note and stick it to their ambition.

Sharing, listening and supporting. Simple!


~ WHAT COULD I GET OUT OF IT? ~

• Practical next steps...useful info, advice, ideas and contacts that could help you progress towards your ambition

• Energy and inspiration...thanks to the meaningful connections you've made, as well as the diverse ideas and ambitions of the people around you. 

• A warm glow...at the satisfaction of being able to use your knowledge to help others (and you'll be surprised how much you can!)

• Confidence...in the viability of your idea

• Feeling of support...as people show their will to help you achieve

• A sense of belonging...you won't feel alone with your idea. Also, some strong friendships have been born at these events so it's a great place to meet some wonderful new people.

• A greater sense of purpose...a clearer idea of how you can have the impact you want to have

Watch this short video and you'll see what actually happens:

----FAQ----

~ WHAT KIND OF AMBITIONS ARE WE TALKING ABOUT? ~

It can be ANYTHING. Anything at all that leads you to greater personal fulfilment. Ambigo is full of people with ambitions like:

• Find out how to grow food in Calais’s refugee camp

• Start a career in events management

• Be more courageous

• Start my own Indian massage business

• Release an album
 

~ THIS IS AMAZING, BUT I DON'T HAVE TIME TO GET INVOLVED IN OTHER PEOPLE'S PROJECTS ~

Don't worry. There is no expectation of you to make any commitment to anybody. The support you give to someone doesn't have to be anything beyond a post-it note with a useful bit of info on it and maybe a quick chat on the day. That alone often proves very valuable to that person.
 

~ WILL THERE BE PEOPLE TRYING TO SELL ME THINGS? ~

No way! Ambigo events are not for people to come along and promote their services. It's for the community to come together to support each other's ambitions.


~ I DON'T HAVE AN AMBITION IN MIND, BUT WOULD LIKE TO HELP OTHERS ~

Brilliant! Come along! Your positive energy and knowledge could have a really positive impact.
 

~ SOUNDS GREAT, BUT MAYBE I'M TOO OLD/YOUNG/DIFFERENT ~

These events are open to EVERYONE. We passionately tell you that we embrace diversity. And, if you're differently-abled, please let us know how we might adapt to make the event accessible to you.
 

~ HOW DO YOU SAY AMBIGO AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN? ~

AM-be-go. It's where our AMBItions GO places! Ambi+go = Ambigo :-)
 

~ WHAT DO PEOPLE SAY ABOUT IT? ~

"I was so surprised to see so many people had perfectly relevant skills or contacts for what I needed....It’s given me a massive confidence boost" - Nathan, Brighton
"It's relaxed...it's nice and easy...and because it's Pay What You Can, nobody's excluded" - Vicky, Seven Dials
"The Ambigo event was the pivotal moment that took my ambition from paper and into the real world" - Fran, London Rd
"I've met so many lovely people...I'm going to leave here with a full heart" - Sarah, Hove

~~~

We can't wait for this! It runs on a Pay What You Can basis (so if you can't pay, please don't!). And, with a maximum attendance of 35, it'll be first come, first served on the night so don't be late!
