A communications and performance expert, Amanda Gore uses latest research in neuroscience, positive psychology, epigenetics, and emotional intelligence, to help business leaders achieve the results they need by getting people engaged in, enthusiastic about and aligned with conference and corporate goals and vision. And by creating joyful workplaces that lead to better performance.
The Harvard business review is entitled "The Value of Happiness - how employee well being drives profits". It is the latest focus for corporations and countries worldwide - how to create flourishing workplaces.
If you want better leadership, change management, team performance, customer service, sales or bottom line, Amanda's focus on:
- how to change people's behaviours,
- how to create environments in which people can be the best they can be and
- how to help people believe in themselves, presented in an entertaining way that has the whole group interacting and involved will create an experience and skill base that changes the whole group dynamics of your conference and people remember for years.
For too long business has been paralysed by its over analysis of data. People are 80% emotional and 20% rational - if we want them to change we have to tell them stories that touch their hearts! Facts and figures don't work - as Lou Gerstner found out as he turned IBM around.
Amanda will help people reconnect to what really matters - the energy and emotional layers that really drive performance, innovation, relationships, engagement and creativity in business and life.
Within a few short minutes, Amanda breaks down the barriers that separate people, and from that moment forward it's fun, invigorating, action packed ride towards self discovery and ultimately, real and lasting change.
Through funny, energising presentations, based on decades of scientific discovery and personal experience, Amanda will both entertain, facilitate changes in behaviour and move your audience to action.
Her programs change the tone of your conference, whether by kick-starting it with laughter and connecting people by breaking down barriers, or sending your attendees off on an emotional and inspired high.
Amanda believes success in business is always about feelings - the way we feel about ourselves, something or someone determines how we behave - and whether we do business with them or not - and the way we interact.
Our perceptions determine our feelings which directly affect our behaviour. Until we change our perceptions, we won't change our behaviour.
Amanda changes perceptions. And feelings.
Author of five books and several DVD and audio training programs, she researches for 2 months every year and has a bachelor's degree in physiotherapy, a major in psychology, is a master practitioner of neurolinguistics, expertise in neuroscience, ergonomics, positive psychology, group dynamics, stress management, and emotional intelligence.
I have been a member of MDRT for 29 years and have seen some of the best speakers in the world. None has ever received 3 standing ovations like Amanda Gore.
- President, Million Dollar Round Table 1999-2000
In a word, she was superb, charming, funny, engaging. She had the audience on the edge of their seats. I have been in Association Management for 15 years and I've never experienced anything quite like it.
- VP Programs, Society of Industry and Office Realtors
You made such a difference. I spent most of this week out visiting the stores and attending store meetings. Wow - it's catching on. Everyone is using the tools you gave them and wanting more. I make financial decisions every day about how to use our budget wisely and invest our money in different resources. You are the best investment we have made yet. We will earn 'dividends' for a long time.
- VP Community Banking, Wells Fargo
You were one of the best speakers we've ever had, if not the best.
