Public Speaking and Workshops

Note: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, lectures and workshops are now provided in an online format. Training sessions can be pre-recorded, provided live as a webinar or delivered as an online course over a few weeks. Workshops may also be packaged with online coaching calls for individuals or groups. 

As a registered social worker with an expertise in compassion fatigue, I offer workshops and presentations to a variety of audiences at a location of their choice. I have been a professional speaker since 2014 and have been invited by many groups who have found my sessions to be informative, insightful and very accessible.

I propose customized solutions for all events and groups; whether you are a corporation wanting to organize a workplace wellness activity for staff, or an agency wishing to provide its front-line staff training about occupational health, or a group of caregivers looking for support.

Something for every type of event:

  • Staff retreats

  • Lunch & learns

  • Personal development days​

  • Conferences

  • AGMs

  • Team building events

Customized formats:

  • Keynote speech

  • Short presentation

  • Half day workshop

  • Full day training

  • 1-2 day retreat

Speaking Engagements


Whether you are looking for a keynote speaker or a brief presentation, I guarantee the delivery to be engaging and informative. Through a compelling and thoughtful narrative, I offer an enlightening experience that allows participants to reflect on the meaning of self-care, reignite their compassion and gain new insights in their caregiving roles. I have been featured as a speaker at over 300 events and counting. 



My workshops are interactive and include practical applications. Using an experiential based delivery approach, I apply wellness concepts to "real life" work situations and teach self-enhancing tools and strategies that can improve workplace, team and individual health. Every presentation can be customized to meet the groups needs and interests.

What people say

Amanda is a dynamic, well-informed, and collaborative presenter that integrates participant examples within the workshop curriculum, which in turn adds incredible depth of understanding to the material. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone that is in a supportive role at work and/or at home.
