The positive impact Amanda has had on both the organisation in general, and on the teams as individuals is obvious. The Management Committee now performs at a significantly more effective level than ever before. Our leadership capabilities have improved. As a team and as individuals, our skill set is greatly enriched.

I have learnt much and from the program Amanda facilitated, it is evident that those that I lead directly and interact with also believe so! I also carry the skills into my personal life, where I’m also reaping the benefits”
