TEDx Talk


Amanda Gore shares little known research on our most vital organ, making a case that changes must begin with the heart. She reveals that the heart produces a magnetic field that extends a 6 to 10 foot radius beyond our body, a finding that suggests our mood can indeed physically influence the people surrounding us.

Furthermore, the heart stores memories and like the brain has its own system of neurons and neuron transmitters. “We know that the heart dominates every single physical, emotional, and mental process in the body,” she states. “So if you want to change stuff you have to go to the most important space on earth, the space inside your heart.”

Amanda Gore shows why joy is the new competitive advantage and how organizations can help their employees re-connect with happiness. Her up-to-date presentations offer proven approaches to changing people’s behaviors, creating environments that bring out the best in people, and helping individuals believe in themselves. Amanda turns around even the most skeptical of audiences, altering the climate in a matter of minutes with her contagious enthusiasm and passion that has made her a top speaker for 30 years.

    Amanda has a range of areas in which she has expertise… most of them related to communication. What you will see here is a list of possible titles and content, however, these can be modified to suit your particular conference themes or outcomes.

    As an australian speaker, it′s not possible to have just one talk as there are not enough audiences for that! So Amanda has information that can be mixed and matched so the content and message can vary. These outlines are just guides for you to have an idea of the areas in which she can speak. Have a direct chat with Amanda to determine which combination would be best for you.

    "The Spirit of Leadership" ™
    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 with a positive spirit are inspired, motivated, excited about what they do, and therefore create strong, lasting relationships.

    This session is full of techniques that will bring out the positive spirit of every attendee, inspire them to handle change or any business challenge creatively, motivate them to be their best, and foster collaborative teamwork. 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.

    "Live Out Loud" ™ (Part One)
    This presentation makes people feel good about themselves, gives the skills of emotional intelligence and transforms their thinking. Audiences will learn to understand the importance of connection in sales, service and relationships, as they discover how to celebrate, motivate and encourage themselves, acknowledge and recognize others, balance work and life in new ways, laugh more and rediscover joy.

    "Lead Out Loud" ™ (Part Two)
    This presentation teaches people how to make others feel good. "People will forget what you say, they will forget what you do, but they will never forget how you made them feel," Carl Buechner. Audiences will learn how to motivate and encourage others better, be authentic at all times, program themselves for excellence, unlock the secrets and power of non-verbal communication, be humble and work collaboratively, build strong, lasting relationships and how to have a positive spirit - not just a positive attitude!

    Break-out Session or Workshop Options
    "You can′t change a customer′s attitude - but you can change yours!" Traditional sales course 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.

    "Communicate Your Way to Success" or "Put the Zing Back in Your Fling!"
    Whether genetic or environmental, the differences in communication styles between men and women are significant. Understanding non verbal communication and the different ways we think and operate helps us have smoother interactions and avoid professional and personal misunderstandings. Although Amanda uses a lot of humour with this session, there are many useful and important distinctions that are highlighted so people can make dramatic changes in their understanding of what is going on, and then have more choices over how to behave.

    Relationships are like living breathing organisms and they need nurturing and watering and care - just like real plants. How to do this nurturing specifically is what you will learn in this session - and how to find out what the other person wants and needs. It′s very funny - and VERY useful for life and work!

    This session can be related to sales, customer service, negotiating, call centres, business relationships, or personal relationships and can focus on sex differences or not!
