Amy presented "Moving from Panic to Purpose" for our chapter meeting. She was very knowledgeable and easy to listen to. She was able to answer all questions and was very professional. Her slides were easy to read, and she gave great examples. She did a fantastic job!

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!

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!

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 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.
