Did you know that Amanda - the founder of Grounded Goodness - is a speaker and facilitator? That's right. She's passionate about spreading goodness in all ways, and that includes giving keynote presentations and facilitating group work. She believes in the power of using your voice - either as individuals or in groups.
And she's not too shabby at it: she won the District 99 Toastmaster of the Year Award in 2017, out of ~2500 members. She hosted 15 events in 7 weeks during the summer of 2018 (as part of her Saskatchewan Sisterhood tour). And she works with businesses and organizations to dig deep to develop a community of genuine support.
Intrigued? Amanda works primarily with women, and her speaking themes include kindness, personal transformation, and developing community through honest and real conversations. She also focuses on 'sisterhood' - the thought that we as women are better when we respect and support each other, in a genuine and honest way.
But don't just take our word for it! Here are just a few testimonials we've received from organizers like you:
"Amanda has a way of making each and every person in the room feel noticed, valued and welcome. Because of her calm and relatable nature our guests felt they could be vulnerable and share with one another in a safe environment. It was a pretty special evening. We shared laughs, tears, hugs and friendship and we still receive compliments from our guests that this was one of the best ladies events they had ever attended!
If you have the chance to work with Amanda or hear her share her experiences, don't hesitate. From her smile to her words of wisdom and laughter, each part of that girl is 100% genuine and fabulous!" - Ebony Prosko, ProSoils
"Amanda provided our group with a great energy that everyone thrived on. She speaks directly and to the point, and that is something that we all really appreciated. She spoke to us about taking care of ourselves, before we can fully be able to take care of the children we care for and that is something everyone needed to be reminded of. Most of all we learned about how we can support each other as group of women all working together in a workplace that can be emotionally charged at time. I would recommend having Amanda to speak to any group as it seems that she can adapt to any setting and has something to contribute to any situation." - Jennifer Peterson, Treehouse Manager, North East Outreach & Support Services
"Amanda is 100% fabulous - a woman who truly practices what she preaches! Working with Amanda was a true partnership. She was so invested and committed to delivering a wonderful experience for our guests and she went out of her way to make our event special. Messages of kindness, compassion and worthiness were woven throughout her presentation, bringing gentle reminders of the power we hold as women. Amanda has an honest, reflective approach to speaking paired with an authentic and relaxed delivery. She brought an inspiring combination of vulnerability and strength, along with her unique perspective, insights and wisdom." - RUH Foundation
