It gives me great pleasure to introduce our next Meet the Member (#JCIUKMTM) Amy Melody, JCI Sheffield Membership Director.
Which chamber are you a member of?
How long have you been a JCI member?
What made you join?
I had recently moved back to Sheffield and didn’t know many people, after speaking to my colleagues they told me JCI was a great way to meet new people, develop my own personal skills and take advantage of great training opportunities.
What is the most interesting JCI event you’ve been to and why?
I attended one at my chamber just recently with a gentleman called Russell Hobbs called Develop to Succeed and it was absolutely fantastic – gave me a different perspective!

Has JCI presented any unusual/interesting opportunities?
I did my first sleep out with JCI Sheffield which was unusual and very interesting…It was something which I was excited and anxious about…at then at 3am all you can think about is the cold and how you only have to do it for one night, but for some people out there it’s every night.
What is your job/career/profession/business?
Has JCI had any impact on your job/career/profession/business?
JCI has really helped me develop my confidence and apply that to different aspects of my job.
What’s your proudest achievement?
Completing 9.5miles in 1hr 30mins – I’m a novice runner and that was an achievement, soon to be beaten by a half marathon though!
Who’s your favourite band/artist?
It’s a toss up between Sex Pistols and the Rolling Stones
Tell us something crazy/dangerous/inspiring/unusual you have done
I trekked the Ugandan jungle in search of gorillas…and we ended up being surrounded by a whole family. It was amazingly surreal.
