Audience Testimonies
Hiring a speaker for an event is a big investment. A presenter needs to be dynamic, passionate, knowledgeable and capable of connecting with your audience. Here are a few reactions from audiences who have listened to Amanda speak over the years.
---
"I witnessed a 17 year old kid captivate an entire room full of adults passionately sharing the merits of beef consumption. Then I witnessed a college kid lead a national movement to do the right thing. Today I witnessed a mother, a wife, a motivator stir folks of all ages to do something because of her example. Amanda Radke sets the standard for what it means to be an American." - Trent Loos, professional speaker, rancher and broadcaster
