Amanda recently presented to our 'Leading Women Network' a collection of women (and some men) from a range of public sector and integrity agencies - or more accurately, Amanda recently absolutely dazzled our members with her insights, practical strategies and encouragement to lead our best lives - all delivered in the most entertaining and hilarious way possible. We have been coordinating quarterly events for the past 18 months and have never received such incredible feedback from our members, who included people in the room and many groups livestreaming in from over twenty 'event hubs' across the State. Our post event online survey indicated the tremendous benefit gained by our members through Amanda's entertaining and insightful presentation.
– Kim Kellaway, Director and Founder at Children's Safety Australia Inc.
Her message is entertaining, high energy, engaging, motivational, thought provoking, and behavior changing. Her powerful message is delivered with humor but sprinkled with science. Her presentation will be a highlight of any meeting. People will be talking about her message for years to come.
– James Gelder, CEO, Highland Capital Brokerage
If you want a speaker that makes your people feel good after the speech, there are hundreds of good speakers out there to choose from; go get one. But if you want your people to be feeling good and making positive changes for weeks and months and years after, then Amanda Gore is your simple choice. She truly is someone who motivates your people to stop, think, analyze and change. She leaves an incredibly uplifting impact on her audiences. Your people will truly thank you for bringing Amanda into their lives. If you want a real catalyst for lasting, positive change, Amanda Gore is your clear choice!
– Jim McPhee, CFE CEO Franchise Synergy
Amanda sent the group off on a high, ready and willing to embrace our business strategy and take it to their people. Amanda had the hardest to please leaving the forum with a better understanding of how important perceptions are, more skills in emotional intelligence and committed to changing their own, and their teams behaviours. Amanda is a fantastic corporate speaker and highly recommended.
– Westpac Group, Chief Operating Officer
Amanda delivered an amazing presentation on leadership and creating resilient workplaces that lead to better performance, which I KNOW resonated with the whole audience. Amanda is awesome and I highly recommend her.
– Jason Kerr, Events Manager Westpac Bank
Amanda is worth every penny and about $60,000 more! I have hired speakers who charge $40,000 and more and they did not leave the audience with a fraction of what Amanda did.
– Business and Professional Women USA
Amanda was hired as the keynote speaker for Executive Women International's (EWI) Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting on the 19 September 2013. She delivered a high energy presentation that had all 400 attendees on their feet. Her key message of embracing change resonated so well that we continually heard our members reciting key components, adding her signature song as their personal ring tones and imitating her actions throughout the rest of the conference. She set a tone for the entire conference which was one of incredible positivity. The results at our Annual Meeting were unprecedented. I would not hesitate to recommend Amanda to any conference organizer that wants to engage their membership! So much fun and wisdom!
– Karen Skirten, Executive Women's International Leadership Conference 2013
We hired Amanda to help us support a client who was going through a major transformational change program, with the complex brief of offering some perspectives on leadership, a discussion of successful teaming, and giving the program teams some effective tools for managing the fear of change and stresses of implementing a major program. Anyone who has seen video clips of Amanda on YouTube knows the energy, humor and deep subject matter expertise that she brings to her engagements. What you don't see is the time and effort she puts into understanding the audience, the key points that we wanted to communicate and the quick understanding of the company and program structure and culture. Many speakers make the mistake of being entertaining at the expense of educating and providing content, or of being content rich but dull and unmemorable. Amanda delivers simple, practical techniques for improving team and organizational performance, managing our personal lives, health and relationships. More importantly she does this in a way that is entertaining and memorable. I find myself using techniques I first heard about when I saw her present 7 years ago. More importantly the survey feedback on the event was overwhelmingly positive, with 75% of folks saying that they would make changes to their personal and work lives based on the session. I also received several personal thank you's from individuals who felt profoundly impacted. There was one 'foofer'. If you truly want to change your culture and team dynamic, hire Amanda.
