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, Nebraska rancher and radio personality
---
"I've been attending agricultural meetings for 25 years now, and Amanda is hands-down in the top 5% of speakers I have ever listened to, ever!" - Bill Legg, Tennessee beef producer
---

"You can't get any better than Amanda!! Book the best - book Amanda!!" - Jess Peterson, U.S. Cattlemen's Association executive vice president

"A big thank you for presenting at Annie's Project about the dynamics of multi-generational operations. A couple of the participants have made comments that you have captured their lives with your presentation. Hopefully, it will give them some perspective and ideas of how to navigate it." - Jeremiah Vardiman, University of Wyoming Extension educator
---
"I learned more in your 20-minute speech than in the entire four-day convention combined." - Nathan Stanton, farmer

On behalf of the NLPA Board of Directors, I want to thank you for making the time to speak to our board members! Your remarks were very well received and created much discussion – even after your session! You are an impressive speaker and the areas which you covered were very appropriate. Although communicating about agriculture can feel futile at times, you do an excellent job of cutting to the meat of the matter and present them in a way that helps people understand the issues and form their opinions on more than just emotion. I think the Zoom system worked well for us. It felt as though you were in the room with us and it seemed the dialogue was seamless. Again, thank you for stimulating our directors’ thinking about some very important issues in the livestock business today! - R. Scott Stuart, NLPA Managing Director
