Approximately 20 years ago Amanda Blesing started to work her way through the ranks of the peak body sector, with her last role as CEO of SOCAP Australia (the professional association for customer care and complaint professionals). And while she has a strong understanding of how to make the most of the sector, her expertise and passion remains in helping people do better work.
As the creator of The Ambition Revolution program, she currently speaks with, and consults to, busy and ambitious professionals. What really switches her on is seeing these individuals step up, speak out and take charge – of their roles, careers, aspirations and their departments and/or organisations. You might even say Amanda is like a personal trainer for those who are ready to strive for ambitious goals or projects but who need that extra push, strategic focus or confidence boost.
What differentiates her is that despite humble origins she has big dreams, is determined, self-assured and provides a great example of hands on leadership that navigates the stormy waters between likeability and getting things done. She truly understands and provides solutions for the challenges professionals face in balancing a demanding role, ambition and workload, along with a fulfilling personal life.
She is based in Melbourne Australia and consults with individuals who are looking to fast track their careers, and corporate clients who want to empower female talent within the business.
