Seeking Inspiration?

- Jean LaVallie, Founder WESOS Network

When your audience of employees, entrepreneurs, professionals, and business owners wants…

  • more clients and sales

  • to become their best selves

  • to achieve more

  • to be motivated into action

  • a better understanding of the power of their words

  • an inspirational pep talk to start making a difference in the world

    …you’re in the right place!

With a knack for public speaking, Amanda helps audiences walk away with simple ideas they can implement in their daily businesses and lives to attract more of their greatest desires.

Amanda is an easy-going, extemporaneous, and interactive speaker who is incredibly comfortable on stage. She brings great energy to any room, and is often guided by her intuition to support her audiences in the moment. Presentations are designed to be rich in content while teaching and supporting attendees at all levels in the room no matter where they are on their journey.

Her non-traditional and counter-intuitive insights offer ah-has that will inspire action, attract clarity, and boost the confidence of your audience members.

Need an emcee for your event?

Amanda’s great at warming up audiences, thinking on her feet, and flexible when it comes to unplanned circumstances (in the case of technological failures, programming delays, and other situations that may arise), adjusting for shifts in the energy of a room, and can keep your event moving smoothly while keeping your audience engaged.

Knowing the importance and power of our words, Amanda chooses to use non-offensive humor and language appropriate for all audiences.

While speaking engagements can be customized for specific audience needs, a few common topics include:

  • Becoming Your Best Self: Master Your Mindset to Achieve Your Dreams

  • The New Handwashing: Manage Your Energy to Stop Taking Work Home

  • Go with Your Gut: Using Your Intuition as Your Guide

  • Becoming a Client Magnet: Narrow Your Focus While Expanding Your Reach

  • Permission to Fail: Learning from Your Greatest Mistakes

  • Master Your Energy to Attract More Sales: Understanding How Your Energy Affects Your Business
