Through creative campaigns, hard work and solid long term media connections Amanda has applied her strategic planning skills to some of the biggest global brands and names in the PR industry. She is now channelling that experience into her own dream – Wildfest Southern Highlands.
Throughout her entire career she has always had a personal love of travel having trekked half the globe. Her work has extended to international media junkets promoting organisations in Kenya, Rwanda, Morocco, Spain, England, Vietnam and Canada so its a natural extension to create a fresh, innovative travel product here in Australia as part of the next evolution of her career.
I have already done so much in the name of sport and yet I feel that there is so much more that I want to achieve as growth is needed for continuous success and happiness. While my CV and credentials attest to my professional qualifications, I have many additional personal experiences that support my knowledge and expertise. I have global working experience and understand the nuances of dealing and working across different cultures, time zones and markets. I am passionate about sports and have been intricately involved in the industry for over 19 years having worked with team sports, individual athletes, and the sports retail and wholesale space.
My passion for running has seen me recently complete the World Marathon Majors as well as 3 x finisher of the Comrades Marathon (Ultra Marathon). I have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and am looking forward to heading to Base Camp Everest in 2018. My passion for travel has taken me to see the Silver Back Gorilla’s in Uganda and Rwanda to experiencing hiking to the Hollywood Sign in Los Angeles USA.
I am interested in helping individuals become the best version of themselves and always ensuring they play to their strengths. I am currently enrolled in a top leadership course to help me build on this. I really believe that positivity always wins! While we always will be faced with setbacks professionally and personally, it is how we deal with these that will set us apart from others. Execution is the ultimate driver for all our hopes and dreams and I hope I can encourage each person I come in touch with to always strive to level up. You are who you surround yourself with and I hope I can provide all the support, guidance and expertise based on my previous and current experience to ensure you can fulfill all your career and personal aspirations
