Amy is one of the most impactful presenters I have had the pleasure of listening to in the career advice and diversity space! Her care, compassion and wisdom won us over at the 2019 CPCU Society Annual Meeting this week! Highly recommended, and looking forward to having her come down to enlighten the Dallas Chapter CPCU Society very soon! I strongly advise that you book her for your event, or organization’s training for change management and more! You will thank me later!

Amy was phenomenal! Her program resonated with our attendees and she knocked it out of the park. We loved that she participated in the conference as well before and after her speech. Not a lot of keynote speakers do that.

I participated in one of Amy's Unconscious Bias Webinars and learned a ton. She has a great way to bring down the concepts to make them easy to understand and fun so you're bound to remember them. I still think about round heads vs square heads all the time, it really stuck with me! Excellent webinar. I learned a ton and highly recommend it!

Hello Amy,

I wanted to thank you for the dynamic presentation to the MBA students at Olivet College.
I have written to the program director requesting a note of thanks and/or letter of recommendation on Olivet letterhead. I will certainly provide one personally on Linkedin. And, of course, I will provide the feedback link to the students.

On another note, I am part of the Risk and Insurance Council at ________________ Association. This council is a very diverse group of professionals; definitely part of the movers and shakers in the industry. I'm trying to think how I might introduce you to this group and possibly have you speak/present in a future meeting.

Thank you!

I wanted to reach out and let you know how much I enjoyed meeting you and attending your session at ASAE. Afterward I ran to the conference bookstore and grabbed the last copy of your book! I was sharing with my team that I had attended your session, and they were interested to learn more. When I return to the office, I am expecting to have a robust conversation with some of them. I hope that ASAE invites you again (and said so in my review).  I know that what you are doing is a great service not only to the business world but also to society, especially in the current climate.

Amy is a really fantastic person. She has a great story and I love that she's focused her work on "the problem before the problem." While diversity and inclusion in the workplace is something we all need to work on, she has brought attention to the fact that building a diverse personal social network is the first step, and something that's on all of us. Amy is extremely smart, incredibly generous, and someone you want to follow up with.

Hi Amy,
I just finished watching and listening to the recording of a CPCU Society webinar that I originally missed. I almost did not go back to it because I have been so busy, but I am so glad that I did!

You did an excellent job presenting this topic. I believe that many people are turned off by topics about diversity and inclusion. They somehow feel offended or uncomfortable by them. I have seen, heard and participated in many diversity presentations over the past 15 years and this was honestly one of the best. It was a very interesting way to try to approach the topic. Not only did you do a great job conveying the information, but you were also quite inspiring and an excellent speaker.

All the best to you, Amy, with your company and your career.

...[Y]ou helped me maneuver the corporate landscape by pulling my military skills that I learned as a sergeant in the military and applying them in corporate America, which is a totally different beast. You’ve also taught me how to be a versatile leader and how to advocate for my voice in the workplace, which can be challenging as a woman professional... The materials that you sent me and your check on my learning really helped me out...

Amy lead a Curated Conversation breakout session at 2019 The WLI Regional Summit in Louisville, KY. The topic we asked her to facilitate was challenging, sensitive and controversial, but we believed it added boldness and depth to our event. Amy did not disappoint. She managed to balance emotions and the academic thought for a focused and productive discussion despite differing views in the room. I highly recommend Lead at Any Level for any event!

I had the absolute privilege in participating in a session led by Amy on the importance of diversity and inclusion within the insurance industry and the importance of building networks. I have attended many conferences tackling similar concepts but haven't ever walked away with as many practical action items. Amy has passion and insight that are clearly displayed throughout her session. I find her to be incredibly approachable and able to respond to the very specific challenges that my team and organization are facing. I would highly recommend Amy if you are looking for an expert who can help your organization embrace diversity and inclusion.

My association with Amy Waninger has grown from a virtual "cold call" a year ago to a strong and multi-faceted partnership. Today, among her other responsibilities, Amy is a faculty member of NextGen Leaders, an organization I founded that provides leadership development support to LGBTQ professionals. Amy is among the very best of the new generation of expert-consultants in the Diversity & Inclusion and Leadership Development spaces.

Her expertise, her decades' long experience in a Fortune 500 company and her personal commitment to equality and inclusion are a potent combination. Together they create an excellent platform for Amy to exercise her considerable creative talents, whether in front of an audience, coaching an individual, consulting for a management team or writing her next book. That sounds like a lot, and I don't know many people who can effectively pull all of that together in a sustained way.

But Amy is one of the most productive people I have had the pleasure of working with. She believes deeply in what she does, has the wisdom and empathy necessary to meet people where they are and the humility to be approachable and make everyone feel at ease, even as she's helping them dispense with outdated thinking and misperceptions that, while sometimes deeply held, do neither them or anyone else any good.

My association with Amy Waninger has grown from a virtual "cold call" a year ago to a strong and multi-faceted partnership. Today, among her other responsibilities, Amy is a faculty member of NextGen Leaders, an organization I founded that provides leadership development support to LGBTQ professionals. Amy is among the very best of the new generation of expert-consultants in the Diversity & Inclusion and Leadership Development spaces. Her expertise, her decades' long experience in a Fortune 500 company and her personal commitment to equality and inclusion are a potent combination. Together they create an excellent platform for Amy to exercise her considerable creative talents, whether in front of an audience, coaching an individual, consulting for a management team or writing her next book. That sounds like a lot, and I don't know many people who can effectively pull all of that together in a sustained way. But Amy is one of the most productive people I have had the pleasure of working with. She believes deeply in what she does, has the wisdom and empathy necessary to meet people where they are and the humility to be approachable and make everyone feel at ease, even as she's helping them dispense with outdated thinking and misperceptions that, while sometimes deeply held, do neither them or anyone else any good.
Amy was very effective in her presentation by using examples. This allows me to remember the concept so I can use it at the office. I am looking forward to hearing more from her.

Amy is articulate, organized, conversational, relatable, funny, and good a pausing and asking for questions throughout the call. Content was delivered as expected, in an organized/logical manner with relatable examples along the way. Amy is always a pleasure to speak to and work with!

I like your positive attitude! It makes the presentation authentic and keeps delivery consistent with the message. Keep doing what you're doing. It is authentic.

Amy presented just the right mix of instruction and interactivity to be sure that audience members understood the importance of a diverse workforce and had identified weaknesses our own networks. The assessment tool she introduced in the "Our Brains Are Biased: How to Break Out, Break In, and Break Through" webinar showed me the weaknesses in my own professional network (without making me feel exposed) and highlighted areas for improvement. She created an atmosphere of safety during the session which allowed us to ask potentially-sensitive questions knowing that her response would be professional and kind. This is an especially important session for new professionals to help them build their networks with intention and for those with well-established networks who may not yet realize the bias that they may be unconsciously supporting.

I really enjoyed Amy's session, "Panic to Purpose: Responding to Changes in Your Career," at the 2019 CPCU Annual Meeting. Amy is an animated speaker who brings a difficult subject down to earth. I loved her easy-to-remember takeaways including, "You can only control what's in your own hula hoop."

Amy C. Waninger's "Lead at any Level" presentation on bias was a refreshing and useful presentation that offered many tools I will now use to expand the diversity and impact of my network.

As a career advisor who works largely with a non-traditional student population, it can be a challenge to express the value and importance of actively networking within our technology age.

This presentation offered tools like the CHAMP/IGGNORE model and language that I will rely upon to express that value to my clients, and help them as they grow professionally and personally.

You used engaging personal examples. The examples helped me connect your key points to my own life. I'd like you to continue telling these personal anecdotes in future presentations. I really appreciate that you shared these stories with us! Thank you for coming today!
