Funny Motivational Speaker Amy Dee uses her hilarious “we’ve all been there” stories to help audiences connect, laugh and open up to the science of how we behave and the power we have to make different choices about how we treat each other (and ourselves). Audiences never forget Amy’s stories. That’s why they never forget the messages behind those stories: We have the power to choose our attitude. We’re accountable for our choices. Obstacles can be problems or opportunities. We can use negative emotions as fuel for positive changes. And kindness always matters…especially in today’s rapidly changing and often frightening world. Audiences leave laughing, ready to make profound changes in their life at home and at work. What a remarkable arc of experience—all from one delightful session!
