Mentor, Trainer, Speaker and Author
Approximately 20 years ago Amanda Blesing started to work her way through the ranks of association management, with her last role as Chief Executive Officer of SOCAP Australia. And while she has a strong understanding of how to turn an organisation around, her expertise and passion remains in designing programs that help people do better work.
As the creator of The Ambition Revolution program, she currently speaks with, and consults to, busy and ambitious professionals. What really switches her on is seeing these individuals step up, speak out and take charge - of their roles, careers, aspirations and their communities.
Most recently she has been working with a range of women including an HR executive in the private sector and a consultant in the USA - both wanting to embrace their "inner expert" and learn how to express their expertise publicly and more easily.
You might even say Amanda is like a personal trainer for those who are ready to strive for ambitious goals or projects but who need that extra push, strategic focus or confidence boost.
What differentiates her is that despite humble origins she has big dreams, is determined, self assured and provides a great example of hands on leadership that navigates the stormy waters between likeability and getting things done. She truly understands and provides solutions for the challenges people face in balancing a demanding role, ambition and workload, along with a fulfilling personal life.
Because not stepping up, speaking out or taking charge can keep you feeling stuck and prevent you from realising the full extent of your professional and personal worth. This does little justice to you and the organisations/clients you work for. To simply overcome a few of these issues will not only increase your confidence, but new opportunities will present themselves effortlessly as will the feeling of being back in the driver’s seat of your work, career and life.
