What really Matters at Work?
Learning how to change attitudes, behaviors and perceptions. (Part 1)

This presentation is about changing our perceptions which transforms how we behave and feel. Full of laughter, interaction, symbols and specific strategies to improve 2 key areas of emotional intelligence – self knowledge and self management – it makes people feel good about themselves and transforms their thinking and attitudes. It talks about why joy is the next competitive advantage! They will learn how to:

  • Understand the importance of connection in leadership, sales, service, and relationships;
  • Celebrate, motivate and encourage others;
  • Deal with stress and change;
  • Manage beliefs which determine performance;
  • Laugh more and rediscover joy.


Discover the Link Between Feelings and Success
How making others feel good will make you a better leader (Part 2)

In this presentation, Amanda teaches people how to bring out the best in others and make them feel good. People always remember how you made them feel. Working with the latest science from positive psychology and epigenetics, people learn how to:

  • Motivate and encourage others;
  • Be authentic, humble and work collaboratively;
  • Program themselves for excellence;
  • Unlock the secrets and power of non-verbal communication;
  • Build strong, lasting relationships and;
  • Have a positive spirit – not just a positive attitude!


The Spirit of Leadership
How to inspire creativity and engage your team (Part 3)

If you want to change an organization, you have to lead with a Change of Heart – a Change of Spirit. The spirit in which we do anything determines the outcome, whether positive or negative. People are no longer a company’s most important asset; the spirit in which they do things is! People with a positive spirit are inspired, motivated, excited about what they do, and create strong, lasting relationships. Once our hearts are engaged in what we are doing, and we see what we do as fulfilling work – not just as a job, then how we work is transformed. This purpose/spirit driven culture is the culture of the future. The new generations are demanding it, baby boomers are seeking it, and everyone wants it! This keynote radically affects the group dynamics – it breaks down barriers so that learning, networking and connection continue not only during the meeting, but for the long term. This session is full of techniques that will help leaders:

  • bring out people's positive spirits;
  • inspire them to change or handle any business challenge creatively;
  • motivate them to be their best and create collaborative teams.


Managing Change
How to Bust Stress, eradicate fear and build morale (Part 4)

Change and stress go hand in hand. Learning about how the brain actually can and does change (neuroplasticity); that adults learn more quickly than children; and that our brains need change to stay vibrant and alert transforms the way people perceive change. This means instead of being a stressor - change can be welcomed as an opportunity to grow and develop - and live, fully alive, longer!

This is a fun session designed to:

  • address today's tough economic climate;
  • to put things in perspective and
  • have people refocus on what’s important.


What Makes Relationships Work at Work
How to bridge the gender gap (or Brain Sex!) (Part 5)

Yes, men and women are from different planets, but a slight shift in perception is all it takes to have them understanding, appreciating and admiring each other for unique talents. Relationships are like living breathing organisms and they need nurturing, watering and care. In this session find out what the other person wants and needs, and how to nurture. It’s very funny – and VERY useful for life and work! This session can be related to sales, customer service, negotiating, call centers, business relationships, or personal relationships and can focus on gender differences or not! Amanda teaches:

  • specific ways to communicate with the opposite sex;
  • and practical tools that will help avoid conflict and build trust.


WORKSHOPS or BREAKOUT OPTIONS
Any of the above keynotes can be extended or combined and made into workshops.

Also note the following workshop presentation:

You Can't Change a Customer's Attitude, but You Can Change Yours

Traditional sales courses focus on communication styles and techniques that are still important, but everyone knows them. Teach your team the latest subtle verbal and non verbal techniques to create partnerships – not just relationships- with your clients or customers. Partnerships are the next level to aspire towards – while everyone else is just working on relationships, you can be focused on creating true long term partnerships!

There are many secrets to enhancing rapport, connection and delivering unpalatable messages without destroying relationship as well as building ongoing loyalty with customers or clients. All relate to our ability to communicate and connect. This session explores how to find out what our clients really want , at much deeper levels than before which then allows us to serve their real needs better than our competitors – and with more flexibility, options and choices.

If you want:

  • your people to be laughing all through the conference;
  • to be communicating and networking well;
  • to bust politics and hidden agendas;
  •  to absorb and retain serious messages;
  • to improve their communication and selling skills;
  • to improve performance;
  • to improve relationships;
  • to successfully manage and alleviate stress;
  • to build or reinforce their teams;
  • to have them say 'this was the BEST conference I've ever attended'

... and generate this level of enthusiasm ...

... then hire Amanda Gore as your conference keynote!

–Society of Industry and Office Realtors

You were just fabulous, and by far the best of our speakers over the past several years.  I'm particularly grateful for how well you integrated our messages into your presentation. You have a wonderful knack for getting the most hard boiled of the group involved.  You even had the biggest cynic in the group laughing himself silly. It is clearly your mission to fill the world with the light and warmth of zoot zoot! Ta Da!!

–Hilton Hotels

We have never received such consistently strong feedback form our participants and our business partners. A large part of that was because of your contribution.

–TD Canada Trust

You were one of the key contributing factors of our [program's success. We have received many accolades from all...Even our technical crew was overwhelmed.

–CAIFA Toronto

You did it, Amanda! We had an aggressive schedule and objectives. You set a tone that offered that, by being positive and caring, we can accomplish whatever we set our minds to. The plans are well on their way to completion. I would be completely remiss if I did not share with you that you struck a chord with the entire group. And as you know, it was a very skeptical group.

–Hard Rock Cafe

You had a big impact.  The Tada’s and 'yes…excellent!' continued long into the next day and all the way through our final dinner. I received a lot of very positive feedback. Thank you for such an energetic and well tailored presentation.

–Grant Thornton International

Amanda, we haven't seen this group this animated ever before! They just loved the experience! Thanks so much for ending our meeting on such a high note. We are getting a lot of kudos and doing 'Ta Da' all over the place!

–Society of Financial Service Professionals
