Full Presenter Profile & Bio

CEO of The Joy Project, author, columnist and businesswoman, Amanda is also one of only four Australians inducted into the USA Speaker Hall of Fame. She holds a bachelor's degree in Physiotherapy, a major in Psychology, and expertise in Neuroscience, Ergonomics, Positive Psychology, Group Dynamics, Stress Management, Neurolinguistics, and Emotional Intelligence.

As a master practitioner of neurolinguistics, Amanda works with businesses to foster a positive impact. She understands that every business's heart and profit centre is about how people think, feel about themselves, and how they make others feel.

Using the latest research in neuroscience, positive psychology, and emotional intelligence, Amanda helps businesses achieve their desired results and outcomes by attaining employee engagement, enthusiasm, and alignment with corporate goals.

Amanda strongly believes that everything in life and business, including success, is about feelings. She reveals how the way we feel about something - such as a product, organisation, person or even ourselves, influences our behaviour and informs our decisions about how we spend – our time and money or with whom we conduct business.  Amanda divulges the effect that our perceptions have on our behaviour and the importance of changing this.

Amanda has worked with organisations of all sizes in every industry to help them create cultures of joy and engagement and bring humanity and joy back into their organisations. She has worked with McDonald's, Westpac, Flight Centre, Google, Disney, Hilton, and many other associations, hospitals, and schools.

As an experienced and engaging speaker, Amanda is able to tailor her sessions to suit her audience. Using her knowledge and expertise, she equips the audience with the emotional skills and neural techniques required to think and work in innovative ways, instilling in them a new perspective.

Amanda constantly adds to her knowledge through continuous research, and she continually explores the latest science and ideas. She combines these with personal experience to inspire her audience to want to make changes at work and at home.  However, as a speaker, Amanda understands that although the content is a crucial factor of presentation, nothing changes until people are inspired to change. Therefore, she specialises in putting the human - and humour - element into events while delivering relevant and potent content to create an environment where people want to grow and take responsibility for themselves.


Speaker Topics

How to Present
Influence and Connect with Impact Amanda has been an internationally acclaimed speaker for 30 years by continuously studying and upgrading her group dynamic skills! She is one of four international speakers inducted into the speaker hall of fame in the USA. In this presentation, Amanda shares how to make a brilliant impact and create the experience and the environment that allows people to make the changes they want to. She teaches the audience the practical skills needed to increase your influence when giving a presentation and how to improve your confidence and make presenting more enjoyable.
Neuroscience of Sales
How to Develop a Buyers Mindset Using Amanda's signature experience creating humour-loaded yet fact-filled presentations, people will walk away thinking differently about sales and how they interact with others. She reveals the neuroscience-based practical skills and strategies that can re-engage your sales force in a way that leaves everyone feeling recharged and resilient.
Re-imagining JOY
How to Re-inspire, Re-focus and Re-store meaning During these unprecedented times, we are continuously re-examining what JOY actually looks and feels like. With mental health issues skyrocketing, it is important now more than ever to re-frame everything and educate people and give them the skills to deal with the 'uncertain and constantly changing new normal'. Amanda has designed this keynote to re-store some sense of control in people no matter where they are and establish the deep connections people are craving.
The Joy Formula
7 Ways to Build Resilience and Restore Work-Life Balance. It is Possible! Research shows that our outlook on stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and, in part, create our environment. The Joy Formula is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances so we can make a plan to improve them. In this keynote, Amanda talks about The Life Pizza - 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. This then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance. This engaging experience sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their 'life pizza'!
The Joy of Mindsets
3 Must-Have Skills for Change Understanding mindsets and mindfulness changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, and creativity. It also reduces anxiety, stress, and depression and increases 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! 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 dysfunctional one; a great culture or a toxic one. In this keynote, Amanda reveals how we can become more mindful and live more consciously. She discusses how to observe your 'mind state' – so that you become aware every time you are mindless and trapped in a pattern of thinking from the past that creates fear.
The Joyful Team
This session teaches how to change our thinking/story - which changes the life you create - at work and home! Our beliefs and way of thinking determine our feelings and behaviour. They define the culture we create around us and the unconscious choices we are making every moment. It's time to remember that 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. It can also help people adopt a more positive approach to change.
The Power of Joy
How Joy Changes Cultures and Performance Everything in business is about feelings, and science has revealed how joy can boost sales, increase productivity, reduce errors, and boost chances of promotion. In this session, Amanda teaches the audience how to rewire your brain for joy. 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 covers the latest research in stress, epigenetics, emotional intelligence, and neuroscience to show you how to reduce the impact of stress and how to change your reactions to it permanently.


It was awesome to navigate with you through your thoughts and hear you talking about energy, quantum physics, the spark that created us as a being, and how our energy affects and influence others. You made me feel special, appreciated and important, and the fact that you placed me (my name) in your presentation bits really boosted my confidence as a leader while re-affirming that to the group – so simple and so powerful! You are a beautiful soul Amanda, and I am grateful I met you on this journey! I felt deeply moved by your personal struggles as I could see myself here and there so easily, and of course, that means, others did the same. It was a very influential presentation that for sure set the tone for the rest of the day – which by the way was great! The feedback has been fantastic and although people are tired today, they are all here and they look happy! The shift has already begun. I personally appreciate the fact that you came and enhanced their enthusiasm giving them tools to cope with their challenges and by doing that, supporting me in my role, while I work relentlessly to implement the changes and set new dynamics to the new office environment. So good to have help for such a huge task! Even better from someone that shines so brightly like you, I will share your resources with everyone.


Her message is entertaining, high energy, engaging, motivational, thought provoking, and behaviour changing. Her powerful message is delivered with humour but sprinkled with science. Her presentation will be a highlight of any meeting. People will be talking about her message for years to come.
