Presenter – Amanda Gore

For more than 25 years, Amanda Gore has been one of America’s and Australia’s most admired experiential speakers. She uses the principles of emotional intelligence to transform the spirit of people and cultures by changing perceptions, improving relationships, connecting people, managing change, leadership, innovation, and team dynamics.

Amanda believes success in business is always about feelings – the the way we feel about a product, organisation or person influences how we behave and informs our decisions about how we spend or who we conduct business with. Until we change our perceptions, we won’t change our behaviour. Amanda’s presentations changes perceptions… And feelings.

Author of five books and several video and audio training programs, Amanda is also the CEO of the JOY Project and has a bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy, a major in psychology, and expertise in ergonomics, stress management, group dynamics, neurolinguistics, neuroscience, and occupational health.
