  • From Burnout to Joy

    The last two years has taken its toll on everyone! Bathed in uncertainty about EVERYTHING, our physical, mental, emotion and spiritual wellbeing has been seriously impacted. Many of us are living with fear, unmotivated, anxious, stressed and feeling burnt out. This keynote or training is geared around the new skills required to rise up out of the exhaustion and fear and rediscover the joy of living. Simple, easy to do activities and ways to change our mindsets and perceptions will help everyone with resilience and leave them with an inner compass! This inner compass will be the way people can navigate their way back to feeling energised and enthusiastic about life again.

    Our inner compass can help us:

    - Re-calibrate relationships and re-imagine joy
    - Re-energise and re-align your team
    - Re-inspire, re-focus and re-store meaning
    - Re-ignite confidence and enthusiasm
    - Reconnect hearts - virtually and physically
    - Stay sane and even thrive while navigating an uncertain future

    We have never experienced a time like this before. Mental health issues are skyrocketing. Fear and uncertainty are undermining people’s health, work and their relationships - We are re-examining what JOY actually looks and feels like - and what really matters to us.

    Now, more than ever, we need to re-frame everything that is going on and educate people and give them the skills to deal with the 'uncertain and constantly changing new normal’.

    To keep teams connected, motivated and maintaining a sense of purpose and belonging is challenging in good times when everyone is physically present. It’s a whole new world working from home, returning to work, work life balance, burnout, juggling children and working from home and being disconnected physically from others. I designed this material to address all the above issues and re-store some sense of control in people no matter where they are. And to establish the deep connections people are craving.

    This whole experience can be seen as a time of devastation and depression - or it can be seen as an opportunity to do many things that can make positive changes in our lives, and the choice is ours. This keynote gives you the tools and mindset to choose wisely.
  • The Power Of Joy

    You were born with the capacity for joy! Science shows us that by the time you were 7, your pure ‘operating system’ of love and joy was infected with viruses, malware, apps and other people’s programs! Joy at work boosts sales by 37%, increases productivity 31%, reduces errors 18% and boosts chances of promotion 40%. Joy matters!

    Your brain can be rewired for joy. This session teaches you how. It includes how to stop stress killing you; how to be resilient; how to be your best version; how to re-focus on what matters, and take responsibility for your choices and behaviour!

    Everything in business is about feelings. Trust, empathy, confidence, cooperation, collaboration, leadership, responses to change - these are just some of the elements (feelings) that create a great culture and team.

    This keynote is aimed at helping people feel good about themselves - which changes the way they interact with everyone else - colleagues, clients and family.

    Amanda presents profound concepts, in an entertaining way that:

    - Changes people's perceptions of themselves and others
    - Engages and energises
    - Gives them specific strategies to bust stress, lead more effectively, fear less, deal with change and collaborate effectively.

    Amanda will cover the latest new sciences of stress, epigenetics, emotional intelligence and neuroscience - which will not only show you how to reduce the impact of stress, but also how to change your reactions to it permanently!

    Did you know that what people believe about stress or stressful situations is the 15th biggest killer of humans in the USA? But it is potentially a source of great resilience, productivity, engagement and courage when handled correctly. It's time to get real about what is really causing our stress.
  • Neuroscience Of Sales

    People have not fundamentally changed for a thousand years but science has. The 'operating system' of a human is not binary based! It's more like quantum computing and runs on feelings. Learn new, neuroscience based practical skills and strategies to re-engage your sales force in a way that leaves everyone feeling recharged and resilient.

    Using Amanda's signature experience creating, humour loaded yet fact filled style, people will walk away thinking differently about sales and how they interact with others.

    Transforming sales results begins with transforming our thinking, perceptions, actions and choices. Knowing precise ways to interact with others to prove that we are competent, trustworthy and safe (a feeling) is required for top performance.

    Learn new, science based ways to:

    - Be resilient and keep yourself motivated and enthusiastic
    - Develop a modern sales mindset and understand the buyer mindset
    - Change the perception of customers
    - Listen properly (hardly anyone does)
    - Connect non verbally (instantly)
    - Establish life long relationships (in a short time) that create advocates not just customers
  • The Joyful Team

    Did you know that science shows us 95-99% of the time we are UN-conscious of our thinking and beliefs? Only 5% of the time are we present and really aware of what is going on inside us! The stories we tell ourselves i.e. what we are thinking literally creates our life, performance and relationships. This session teaches how to change our thinking/story - which changes the life you create - at work and home!

    The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high performance sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say!

    One energy sucker will bring the whole group down.

    Beliefs, the stories we tell themselves about ourselves, our colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determines our feelings and behaviour. Our beliefs control our nonverbal communication which affect all relationships. Our beliefs determine the culture we create around us and the unconscious choices we are making every moment.

    It's time to remember we control our thinking and we choose to make conscious choices or not.

    This session can change perceptions, relationships, personal accountability, enthusiasm, engagement, energy and culture. But wait - there’s more! It can also help people adopt a more positive approach to change. While they laugh.
  • The Joy Formula

    Did you know that new research shows us what we believe about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, create our environment. How we think about life balance also determines the physiological and psychological impact. The Joy Formula 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!

    'Busy-ness’ is the new ‘disease’ impacting almost everyone. Rushing and having the perception (and reality) of ‘too much to do’ can destroy mental clarity and physical health. Constant social media comparisons and addictions don't help.

    Understanding the 3 possible stress responses and channeling them in the right way changes everything! How we feel, how we respond to those events and how others in turn respond or react.

    Amanda will discuss, The Life Pizza which is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances in what areas are most important to us and what areas we put most of our attention on - which then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance. It is also the way to introduce concept of resilience and teach them several ‘resilience strategies’. This is an engaging experience that sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their ‘life pizza’!
  • The Joy Of Mindsets

    You are not your mindset - but your mindset creates your life! Understanding mindsets and mindfulness literally changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, creativity; reduces anxiety, stress, depression and reactivity; they increase energy, wellbeing and makes you happier. This session will show you simple ways to stop being mindless, be more present, more effective - and more joyful!

    Being mindful is ‘waking up’ - about becoming more conscious - and living more consciously - which is one of Amanda's core themes. Most of us are running on habits and patterns of thinking from our past! We don’t even know those patterns are subconsciously programming our present.

    Think driving a car. How mindful were you in your first few lessons? Now, how often do you arrive home and you don’t even know how you got there - yet you were driving the car! This is a common theme with anything we learn - we are mindful in the beginning and then we become mindless!

    The difference between a growth mindset and a fixed one is the difference between a joyful life and a stressed, unhappy one; between a joyful team and a disfunctional one; a great culture or a toxic one.

    Here are 3 things you can do to be mindful not mindless:

    1. Observe your thinking!
    2. Question rather than assume!
    3. Reframe and find gratitude.

    This is one of the practical skills discussed - Observe your ‘mind state’ all day today - with the goal in mind of becoming aware every time you are mindless! Every time you are not present. Every time you are trapped in a pattern of thinking from the past that creates fear. Then STOP - OBSERVE - QUESTION to become mindful again. Be the one who is mindful of their mindset!
  • How To Present

    Public speaking is listed higher than death for many people! Amanda has been an internationally acclaimed speaker for 30 years by continuously studying and upgrading her group dynamic skills! She is one of 4 international speakers inducted into the speaker hall of fame in the USA.

    When we speak - there are 2 levels to consider. One is the content which must be relevant, appropriate and interesting. The other - the magic - is the process. The process is the way in which the messages are delivered and it is the 'difference that makes the difference’.

    It’s the magic that makes the content memorable; it creates the experience and the environment that allows people to make the changes they want to. It inspires. It entertains. It is the difference between a brilliant impact and a mediocre, forgettable one.

    Learn some of this magic and practical skills to increase your influence when you deliver an idea or present; to improve how you deal with challenges and overcome objections non verbally; and to increase your confidence so you actually can enjoy presenting to a group of people - no matter what size.
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.

Amanda Gore was an inspiring, uplifting, informative delight that our members were discussing the entire remainder of the meeting. I cannot impress upon you enough how well she was received. Amanda’s presentation was the most audience – inspiring performance we have ever witnessed. I would extend my highest recommendation to Amanda Gore.

— Executive Director, Aluminium Extruders Council

When Amanda Gore was suggested as a speaker for our sales meeting, I had serious doubts. What could a woman with a physiotherapy background do with a male-dominated, demoralized, fragmented capital equipment sales team coming off a bruising competitive year?... We’ve used every type of speaker in the past, from star athletes to big-name motivational speakers. Inch for inch, pound for pound and dollar for dollar, Amanda Gore was the best speaking investment we ever made!

— CEO, Hobart Kitchen Supplies USA

One of the most essential ingredients for a great conference is the keynote speaker. Working with a seasoned audience who have experienced hundreds of motivational speakers, I avoid speakers that deliver the same-old-same-old messages in a way that provokes weariness. I first selected Amanda in 2008 as an afternoon speaker for an international trade association's annual meeting. I sought a celebratory keynote for the morning, and Amanda's speaking-slot was the difficult after-lunch position. Our meeting theme that year was "connect," and our celebrity speaker had done little to help with that message. Amanda took the stage and dazzled us all for an hour. She has an ability to read her audience and deliver the energy and messages they need. People emerged energized as they literally buzzed around the event reciting messages from her talk throughout the conference's remaining days. Evaluations that year cited her as not only one of the best speakers they'd experienced but also someone who delivered content that had a direct impact on their lives. I wasn't surprised because the power of Amanda's presence was apparent even through the phone. What I did not anticipate, however, was how her message's poignancy would impact me personally. Through her presentation, I, too, learned some valuable techniques that I still carry with me today in my personal and business roles. Our organization never repeats speakers. But after less than stellar luck with high-profile speakers who stuffiness prevented them from engaging our audience, we invited Amanda back to help us again. She delivered a big win for our opening session; she went above and beyond, arriving from across the globe and delivering the most upbeat and energizing opening session we'd had in years. The attendees walked out of the session practically dancing. This energy continued to flow throughout the conference. It was easy to discern the conference attendees who attended Amanda's morning session from those who chose to sleep. Amanda went on to do a small CEO-to-CEO session and an in-depth workshop for us. The evaluations were some of the highest ever received. When the pandemic hit, we realized that we wouldn't be meeting in-person. Once again, I reached out to Amanda to be our keynote for our first-ever virtual event. She spent hours working with me to make sure her message would convey as well over the computer as it does in person. And, once again, she delivered a brand-new, authentically wonderful message that the audience needed to hear. I've had the wonderful pleasure of working with 100s of professional speakers. Amanda Gore is a stand-out. I'm so appreciative of the work she does.

— Melissa Brunton, Senior Vice President, Direct Selling Organisations USA

Amanda is a wow of wows of speakers. She’s enchanting, captivating, brilliantly funny, tenderly charming, heartfelt, genuine, sincere and poignantly authentic and yet she delivers a powerful message that we each want and need to hear. She’s unforgettable with her innovative audience involvement techniques...that will give you skills to take home, tell others and start using immediately to better your life, your relationships, your future and finances.
