Keynote Topics

How to Re-Inspire, Refocus and Re-Store meaning

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

How Joy Changes Cultures and Performance

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.

How to Develop a Buyers Mindset

 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 lifelong relationships (in a short time) that create advocates not just customers
