Working with Amanda was fantastic – when we approached her to speak at the Engaging Associations Forum, we found her immediately collaborative, as she wants to create change in the industry as much as we do! She customized her approach to our audience and even took the time to have a conversation with another speaker who was speaking about a similar topic, and an effort to align some touch points and not confuse the audience. Our participants agreed – they said she was very knowledgeable, an engaging storyteller, and her presentation was polished. We highly recommend adding Amanda to your speaker roster at your conference!

We chose Amanda to kick off our largest online event of the year, our Membership Growth Online Summit, and judging by the overwhelmingly positive response from our attendees, we made the right choice. In the post-webinar survey, many people said they learned something they could apply right away. Others added they couldn’t wait to share what they learned with their colleagues and board. To me, responses like these come from Amanda’s expert ability to not only convey theory and principles but to also make everything come alive with practical examples. It’s no wonder Amanda’s webinar was the highest attended during the Summit, and the most-watched recording afterward. On top of all this, I thoroughly enjoyed working with Amanda — a unique combination of industry expert and a true professional. I’ll work with her again, and I highly recommend her.

We hired Amanda to speak at a meeting of CPA association professionals from across the country. The topic was about Member Engagement and Amanda hit the nail on the head and really got us all thinking about our engagement styles. One of the biggest takeaways of her presentation was the importance of first impressions. Thanks to Amanda’s research and insight, our specific organization, the PICPA (Pennsylvania Institute of CPAs) is working to incorporate a team of staff members to send to events to ensure that our members are getting the best experience possible. We are looking forward to having Amanda speak to our organization again as we train our staff on member engagement strategies.

When you hire a speaker, you wonder will they be easy to work with? Will they demand we hold questions until the end of the presentation? Not Amanda. She was easy to work with from the get-go. When I sent her an email, I knew I did not need to give it another thought because she would follow up quickly and thoroughly. I enjoyed her easy-going style during the presentation. The board members felt free to ask questions and offer ideas throughout prompting a great exchange. Amanda was fun to work with!
