“Like most people, I’m only half listening to the presentations towards the end of conferences. That’s because my attention is focused on the long list of emails on the phone I’m hiding under the table. Amantha Imber’s presentation was different. It was compelling, intrusive, provocative and insightful. I powered off my phone and listened.”

“Amantha recently led an interactive keynote with the Disney Consumer Products team, which bowled everyone over. Amantha’s style is disarming, engaging and thought provoking. She presented pragmatic insights in such a way that the team felt really empowered to take the information and run with it. Was a wonderful reset moment and we’re all looking forward to living more of our best work life. Thoroughly recommend.”

“It was during the final session of an incredibly boring seminar that Amantha made her first impression on me. She blew me away. She was quirky, engaging, energetic, energising and incredibly insightful. Since then, I’ve involved Amantha in running my part of the business because she causes people to be more productive in their roles by helping them to be more creative. Amantha is one of those great educators who does not teach things, she helps people to discover things. I have no hesitation in recommending Amantha to any business leader.”

“Amantha is a person who makes a lasting impression and changes people’s lives. There aren’t many who can claim that. Of course it helps that she has a PhD in cognitive behaviour, but she combines her deep expertise with an exceptional gift to teach and inspire and enthuse and build deep personal connections with people from all walks of life, culture creed and colour. She teaches the most complex science in a way that makes it seem simple, easy and very do-able. She is also one of the most professional people I have ever worked with- reliable, prepared, personable. I love working with her!”
