Amanda blends these areas of expertise to connect body, mind and spirit to show people how to become more effective professionally and personally and to rediscover joy at work and in life.
Amanda took up my challenge of heading up day 2 of our Sales Kickoff conference. And after the year we had and the celebrations that ensued the previous night, that was no mean feat! I am very please to say that after Amanda’s Taadaa’s, “EXCELLENT’S and Magic Wands, I had 180 enthused, vibrant and charged up salespeople. They left the session singing, smiling and even some were dancing!! The rest of the day was a high-energy and constructive session that I would never have imagined possible, she is brilliant! I have never received so many votes of thanks and expressions of gratitude for an event in my career, and I put a lot of that down to Amanda’s energy and smiley faces!! I even walked past the Melbourne Sales meeting on Tuesday and they were wearing their smiley faces and standing up yelling…”EXCELLENT” and they were replaying Amanda AGAIN! They can’t get enough of her… MD CA Pacific
