Testimonials for Amantha Imber
Excellent! Very inspiring and motivating, yet also practical and out-come focused and very digestible for my staff.
It was unique, immersive learning. It left me with plenty of things I can do and use in the future.
Amantha provides her audience with strategies that are directly translatable into practice – no small feat given the phobias and anxieties that a large number of people experience when reflecting upon their own personal levels of creativity. I recently invited Amantha Imber to present both a keynote address and a workshop at a conference for Tasmanian teachers. Amantha's keynote was exceptional and profoundly moving for me as a person and as an educator. The conference has since proven to be something of a hit. The 'secret weapon', in my opinion, was Amantha Imber!
Vocational and Applied Learning
Amantha Imber's presentation as part of the Chisholm Business Innovation Seminar Series was a huge success. She is an engaging speaker and a polished presenter who is fun to listen to. The information she presented on the science behind creativity and strategies for ideas generation were really well-received and the participants lined up to buy her new book. We would welcome an encore presentation anytime. Amantha was great
Chisholm Institute of TAFE
Amantha has delivered excellent results for Coca-Cola Amatil. I have rarely seen a set of creative tools permeate an organisation so quickly due to their clear logic and simplicity.
Fantastic. It was very original, relevant and applicable. Great tools we can use everyday. Will definitely recommend!
Amantha Imber's presentation was a refreshing change. Clearly a gifted public speaker, she implored us to 'crush our assumptions', 'go wide', and 'step into the shoes of others', in order to stimulate creativity in our marketing teams. It set a creative tone for the conference and engaged the delegates on several levels. I would recommend Amantha as a conference speaker to other conference organisers looking to get the most for their delegates and add a little spice to their planned schedule.
Fee Range: $10001 to $15000

Speaking Topics Include
Innovation Survivor: How to outthink, outsmart and outlast your competitors
It is our ability to generate breakthrough ideas to business challenges and opportunities that is what literally enables us to outthink, outsmart and outlast our competitors. Amantha will take you through the latest scientific findings in relation to what really drives highly inventive and intelligent thinking.
You will walk away with a set of practical tools that you can use on your own and with your team to outthink the competition.
Outcomes: attendees will leave with:
- a set of practical tools to drive breakthrough thinking
- the skills to literally outthink and outlast competitors
- tools that can easily be communicated to their teams and others within the organisation to help spread the innovation virus quickly and effectively.
Suited for: audiences who recognise that it is our ability to outthink our competitors that is what makes us outlast our competitors.
Innovation Accelerator: How to turbo-charge and lead innovation.
Innovation is what provides organisations with a competitive advantage, not only through bringing to market profitable new products and services, but also through having more engaged employees, efficient processes that save companies millions of dollars, and through being an aspirational workplace - one that people are queuing up to get into.
Amantha will take you through the latest scientific findings into what leaders can do to successfully drive innovation - and what they need to avoid doing at all costs.
Outcomes: attendees will leave with an understanding of how to:
- accelerate organisational growth using science-based innovation
- decrease failure rates and increase profitability of ideas being brought to market.
- practical tools to unlock breakthrough thinking from anyone
- the key behaviours leaders need to possess to motivate employees to innovate.
Suited for: leaders who want to build a culture that inspires inventiveness and a business that grows profit and productivity through innovation.
Get Unstuck: How to unstick your thinking to stand out from the pack.
There is an old saying that says ?if you always do what you always did, you?ll always get what you always got?. If you are a sales person in today?s ultra competitive climate, if you keep doing what you always did, you will probably start to go backwards.
Amantha will cover some very practical techniques on how to differentiate yourself during the sales process using innovation tools, in order to convert more sales.
Outcomes: attendees will leave with an understanding of how to:
- how to stand out from the pack (even when selling a commodity product)
- make a lasting impression on new and existing customers
- increase conversion rates through thinking differently
- turn rejections into opportunities to make lasting impressions.
Suited for: While this course has been designed for sales teams from all industries, it is especially suited to those who are selling a commodity product, those who feel stuck in their current ways of doing things, teams that have limited influence on actual product/service innovation, and those that want to ramp up their sales process and increase conversions.
Facilitated Innovation Lab
Amantha will facilitate a one hour to one day Idea Lab at your conference. Using scientifically proven innovation tools, Amantha will get your attendees generating breakthrough ideas on how a relevant challenge or problem can be solved.
Delegates will not only be exposed to cutting-edge creativity enhancing tools, but will also generate a stack of great ideas. And they will have a lot of fun doing it.
Outcomes: attendees will leave with
- a stack of breakthrough solutions for a key business challenge
- exposure to several science-based innovation tools that they can continue to use back in the workplace
- a sense that their ideas and thinking matter and are valued by the organisation
Suited for: organisations that need an injection of breakthrough thinking in their event or have a key challenge they want attendees collaborating to solve.
