She is indeed an inspiring presenter - intelligent, kind, entertaining and humble. Her message is both disarming and profound, entirely practical and applicable. I immediately acted upon Amy's advice (as is her intent) and myself and my team have since been rewarded in spades. Excuse the somewhat effusive recommendation, but I cannot speak highly enough of Amy and her messages."
"Thought-provoking, informative and engaging. Our guests (including me) loved the session and found it greatly beneficial. In fact we have already locked Amy back into the diary for another event this month"
We recently worked with Amy to help us determine our strategic direction. How glad we were to have Amy. She helped us design the discussion guide and moderated groups with professionalism so that we got what we needed. She was outstanding, focused, efficient and really took the time to understand what we were trying to achieve.
Amy's profile tells you everything you need to know about her skills, professionalism and expertise. I verify all of those things, but would like to add what she is like to work with - as often that is the thing that determines the success of a project. Amy is engaged, interested and inquisitive. She brings energy, enthusiasm and proactive drive, delivering work with clarity, intelligent analysis and a good dose of common sense. She is a joy to work with.
Working with Amy was a fantastic experience. She challenged the thinking I had traditionally had about myself, enabling me to use a different approach to my work. She also helped me with tools that I'd not used before in managing my team which produced great results!
