Amanda Gore Biography

Amanda Gore is one of Australia's and the USA's favourite conference keynote speakers. All of her sessions can also be delivered virtually – with as much impact as live!

Gore is CEO of The Joy Project, an author, speaker, Huffington Post columnist and business woman. She is one of 4 Australians inducted into the USA Speaker Hall of Fame. She is a CSP and has won both Educator of the Year and Keynote Speaker of the Year awards from National Speakers Association.

She works with small and large organisations like Google, McDonalds, Wells Fargo, Allstate, MDRT, Re/max, Disney, Hilton, Not For Profits, The Direct Selling and many other associations, hospitals and schools to help them create cultures of joy and engagement and to bring the humanity back into their leadership and organisations.

In this age of unlearning the ways we used to work and live and re-learning new ways to engage and connect with our teams – and live our lives, mental health issues are sky rocketing. Joy increases productivity 31%, sales 37% and reduces burnout 125% and is the antidote to our mental health crisis. There are many aspects of Joy that can be taught that can transform mindsets – and hearts. Creating joyful cultures and actually focusing on joy as a business strategy is smart!

Along with many others, Gore’s world as a speaker was transformed overnight with COVID. Her journey of pivoting and re evaluating everything she was doing has deepened her level of empathy and experience and has given her many new stories and concepts that are so relevant for adapting to ongoing change, new ways of working, disconnection as well as strategies for staying mentally, emotionally and physically well. Which all revolve around how we choose to perceive what is going on in our lives.

To make her virtual presentations as effective as her live ones, Gore has a professional quality studio set up and specialises on ‘personally’ connecting through the camera. She has taught people in the past how to be engaging and lively on video so she knows how to make a virtual presentation or pre record appear live – and how to really connect with individuals or groups watching via video – using the principles of quantum physics and group dynamics.

As a communications and performance expert, Gore believes success in business is always about feelings – the way we feel about a product, organization or person influences how we behave and informs our decisions about how we spend, or with whom we conduct business. She uses latest research in neuroscience, positive psychology, quantum physics, epigenetics, and emotional intelligence, to help business leaders achieve the results they need by getting people engaged in, enthusiastic about and aligned with corporate goals and vision. And by creating joyful workplaces – both remote and office based - that lead to better performance.

For too long business has been paralysed by its over analysis of data. Gore will help you re-connect to the energy and emotional layers that really drive performance, innovation, relationships, engagement and creativity in business and life. Virtually, pre recorded, hybrid or live.

Within a few short minutes, Gore breaks down the barriers that separate people, and from that moment forward it’s fun, invigorating, action packed ride towards self discovery and ultimately, real and lasting change. Through funny, energising presentations, enhanced by decades of scientific discovery and personal experience, Gore will both entertain, facilitate changes behaviour and move your audience to action.

Her programs (virtually or live) change the tone of your conference, whether by kick-starting it with laughter and connecting people by breaking down barriers, opening their hearts and minds to learning or sending your attendees off on an emotional and inspired high. Author of five books and several online, DVD and audio training programs, she researches for 2 months every year and has a bachelor’s degree in physical therapy, a major in psychology, is a master practitioner of neurolinguistics and has expertise in neuroscience, ergonomics, positive psychology, group dynamics, stress management, and emotional intelligence.

“Amanda has been my ’secret weapon’ to energise culture and connectivity in teams." - Gerry Cunningham. Board Leadership Fellow at NACD

    PDS Special Events - Mar 26 2020

  • Our All American Entertainment agent was awesome and very responsive! She provided great recommendations based on the criteria I provided when looking for speakers. Our logistics agent is top notch as well! She was on point with all of the info she needed to receive and provide to both PDS and the speakers. She was on top of everything and made sure we had what we needed to assist the speakers in fulfilling their contract. The AAE team was constant professionals and such a pleasure to work with and collaborate with! I would love to work with them again! Amanda was top of the line! Our attendees were talking about her days after her time on stage! She definitely lived up to and exceeded our expectations from seeing her videos.

  • “One word . . . AMAZING! Two words . . . DAMN ENERGETIC! I have just returned from Filex 2011, where Amanda opened the presentation with the most incredible presentation. And incredible on so many levels. Her pitch was exactly right for the attendees. Her words, her mannerisms and her content was a perfect match. Building instant rapport and putting everyone at ease. It was obvious she listened to the prior speakers and wove their message into her key note. A powerful skill but one in which attendees would not have been aware of. I am 100% sure they would have thought it was part of her presentation. Her stage presence had everyone totally engaged. The obvious depth of her knowledge in the subject matter, allowed you to sit and enjoy. It was both educating and entertaining - true edutainment. If you need a speaker to spark the internal flame with your team, then you cannot go past Amanda Gore. She is no foofer!”

Amanda Gore Speaking Topics

  • How to Present: Influence and Connect with Impact

    Public speaking is listed higher than death for many people! Amanda has been an internationally acclaimed speaker for 30 years by continuously studying and upgrading her group dynamic skills! She is one of 4 international speakers inducted into the speaker hall of fame in the USA. When we speak - there are 2 levels to consider. One is the content which must be relevant, appropriate and interesting. The other - the magic - is the process. The process is the way in which the messages are delivered and it is the 'difference that makes the difference’. It’s the magic that makes the content memorable; it creates the experience and the environment that allows people to make the changes they want to. It inspires. It entertains. It is the difference between a brilliant impact and a mediocre, forgettable one. Learn some of this magic and practical skills to increase your influence when you deliver an idea or present; to improve how you deal with challenges and overcome objections non verbally; and to increase your confidence so you actually can enjoy presenting to a group of people - no matter what size.

  • The Joy of Mindsets: 3 Must-Have Skills for Change

    You are not your mindset - but your mindset creates your life! Understanding mindsets and mindfulness literally changes your brain and improves performance, leadership, decision making, creativity; reduces anxiety, stress, depression and reactivity; they increase 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! Being mindful is ‘waking up’ - about becoming more conscious - and living more consciously - which is one of Amanda's core themes. Most of us are running on habits and patterns of thinking from our past! We don’t even know those patterns are subconsciously programming our present.

    Think driving a car. How mindful were you in your first few lessons? Now, how often do you arrive home and you don’t even know how you got there - yet you were driving the car! This is a common theme with anything we learn - we are mindful in the beginning and then we become mindless!

    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 disfunctional one; a great culture or a toxic one.

  • The Joy Formula: 7 Ways to Build Resilience and Restore Work Life Balance

    Did you know that new research shows us what we believe about stress decides if our bodies react negatively or not. Our perceptions rule our reality and in part, create our environment. How we think about life balance also determines the physiological and psychological impact. The Joy Formula is a simple and easy way to review important aspects of our lives and become aware of imbalances that then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance - or at least, make us feel we have a sense of control over our lives! 'Busy-ness’ is the new ‘disease’ impacting almost everyone. Rushing and having the perception (and reality) of ‘too much to do’ can destroy mental clarity and physical health. Constant social media comparisons and addictions don't help.

    Understanding the 3 possible stress responses and channeling them in the right way changes everything! How we feel, how we respond to those events and how others in turn respond or react.

    Amanda will discuss, The Life Pizza which is 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 - which then allows us to make a plan to improve that balance. It is also the way to introduce concept of resilience and teach them several ‘resilience strategies’. This is an engaging experience that sends people out of the room laughing and determined to balance their ‘life pizza’!

  • The Joyful Team: How a Growth Mindset, Engages, Motivates, and Changes Cultures

    Did you know that science shows us 95-99% of the time we are UN-conscious of our thinking and beliefs? Only 5% of the time are we present and really aware of what is going on inside us! The stories we tell ourselves i.e. what we are thinking literally creates our life, performance and relationships. This session teaches how to change our thinking/story - which changes the life you create - at work and home! The major disruptor to collaborative teams, joy filled workplaces and high performance sales and service is ‘stinking thinkin’ as Zig Ziglar used to say!

    One energy sucker will bring the whole group down.

    Beliefs, the stories we tell themselves about ourselves, our colleagues, customers, bosses and the company determines our feelings and behaviour. Our beliefs control our nonverbal communication which affect all relationships. Our beliefs determine the culture we create around us and the unconscious choices we are making every moment.

    It's time to remember 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. But wait - there’s more! It can also help people adopt a more positive approach to change. While they laugh.

  • Neuroscience of Sales: 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.
