EVERYDAY HERO

Remember Your Power to Make a Difference

Who you decide to be in this world matters. That’s why—with the right attitude—no job is small and profound satisfaction can come from finding meaning in everyday actions. Attendees learn how they are responsible for their actions and their attitude. They’ll explore how to bring a positive attitude from “inside” rather than trying to extract it from external events during the day. They’ll realize that for every act of violence and horror we hear about there are thousands of unheralded acts of kindness. They’ll discover delightfully practical ways to develop kindness, positivity and deal more effectively with negative people and situations. Specific examples of kindness, generosity and positivity can be included from your own organization. 

 

DESTINY IS PAVED WITH CHOICES

Remember Your Power to Choose Success

No more being stuck or blaming others! This presentation explores how to take back your power to shape your own destiny by making conscious choices that are aligned with your goals. Attendees will discover how to improve “choice-making” by putting space between their impulses and their actions. This gives them time to reframe challenges and literally change the way they look at things and how they choose to move forward. They’ll learn how to self-guide by asking questions such as, “Will this choice put me closer to or further from my goal?” and “Is what I’m about to say necessary? Will it strengthen my relationship bridge or weaken it?” Attendees will even discover how to find meaning—and value—in failures. Examples of the specific types of challenges your organization and audience face can be included.

 

STOP. THINK. RESPOND.

Remember Your Power to Breathe 

Information overload. Decision overload. Overload overload. Does it feel like you’re speed-walking through life—with a pebble in your shoe? For anyone in chronic overdrive or stuck in a life that no longer fits, this presentation reminds us of our power to stop and take a breath so we can respond rather than simply react. Attendees discover how thoughts create emotions—and why it’s dangerous to believe everything you think! They’ll explore how anxiety, anger and fear make it impossible to access our “thinking” brain and leave our “ancient” fight-or-flight brain in charge. Attendees will also learn how to trade this constant reactivity for a positive and empowering way of interacting with the world, including how to make those all-important human connections that keep us happier at home and at work.

Allina Health

Amy was our featured speaker at our Avera No Boys Allowed Women’s Health Expo. We could not have made a better choice! She was both inspirational and hilarious. She had the entire audience, ages 18-75, crying with laughter. We had so many requests to bring her back again! She was very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Reach Partners, Inc.

Amy Dee received a standing ovation for her opening keynote at the Women’s Health Conference in Fargo, ND. Amy took the time to understand what we were looking for and the result was a hilarious and poignant message about our everyday choices. It set the exact tone for the day. She was easy to work with, adaptable, and personable with the staff, committee, and most importantly the attendees. Amy has amazing energy, a great sense of humor and has a relevant and inspirational message to share.

Northeast Community College Education Center

Amy Dee’s keynote presentation was extremely well received. We heard comments like “She was an amazing presenter…have her back!!”

Sanford Health

I wanted to send you a note of gratitude for sharing your wisdom and spirit with the attendees of the Sanford Nursing Symposium. Your message was delivered with authenticity, laughter, and was the perfect end to the day. Evaluation comments from attendees show we couldn’t have asked for more from your presentation. In addition, you were very accommodating and easy to work with which is always appreciated. Many thanks!
