Testimonials for Amanda Gore
“Meeting planners have to ask themselves if the speaker that they are looking to hire is worth what they paid. I am here to tell any meeting planner who wants to know, the answer is YES. 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."

“You made such a difference. I spent most of this week out visiting the branches. Wow - it's catching on! Everyone is using the tools you gave them. I make financial decisions every day about how to use our budget wisely. You were the best investment we have made yet. We will earn 'dividends' for a long time."
VP - Wells Fargo Bank
“Amanda took up my challenge of heading up day two 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 pleased to say that after Amanda's taadaas, 'EXCELLENT!s' and magic wands, I had 180 enthused, vibrant and charged up salespeople. They left the session singing, smiling and some were even 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..."

Amanda Gore's Biography
Amanda has a degree in Physiotherapy, a major in Psychology and is a Master Practitioner of nerolinguistics. She practiced as an ergonomics and occupational health consultant before frustration at the reactive nature of physiotherapy led her to the more pro-active stance of trying to prevent stress, illness and injury.
Amanda now has over 25 years experience as a keynote speaker, working with corporations and individuals to help people reconnect with the energy and emotional layers that drive performance, innovation, relationships, engagement and creativity in business and in life. Taking the stance that business has been paralysed by its own over-analysis, Amanda's presentations break down the barriers that separate people in an invigorating, action packed ride towards self-discovery and ultimately real and lasting change.
Speaking to groups as small as 12 and as large as 15,000, Amanda makes the argument that people who are happy at work are 31% more productive, sell 35% more and are three times more creative. They make better team players, handle change more effectively, become more positive and are much more engaged. It is Amanda's mission to make audiences happier - for a long time - and she gives them strategies that work on how to stay happier. After 15 years of research with the world's leading experts on group dynamics, Amanda has mastered the ability to customise her presentations for maximum impact to her audience.
Based in the United States for eight years, Amanda was voted one of the top three speakers by leading speakers' bureaus and in 2007 she was voted 'Favourite Speaker' by Meeting Professionals International. In 2009 she was inducted into the US Speakers Hall of Fame by the National Speakers Association. That same year she was voted one of the hottest 25 speakers in the USA by Speakers Magazine and in Australia she received the Keynote Presenter Award for Excellence by the National Speakers Association of Australia.
Amanda is contracted by some of the world's largest corporations to assist business leaders in achieving results by getting people engaged in, enthusiastic about and aligned with corporate goals and vision.
In between delivering an average of 60 presentations each year in Australia and the US, Amanda has written five books, produced several DVD and audio visual training programs and has accumulated over one million views on her YouTube channel.

In this session you will learn more about changing your thinking - and therefore changing your life!
3. The Life Pizza - 7 ways to build resilience and restore work life balance. It IS possible!
Did you know that new research shows us how we THINK about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, creates our environment. How we think about life balance also determines the physiological and psychological impact. The Life Pizza is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances that then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance - or at least, make us feel we have a sense of control over our lives!
