TESTIMONIALS  

Below are just a few examples. See more by clicking here 
Amanda presented the story of her life to a capacity audience of five hundred people at Otley in March. 
Amanda talked for over an hour, regaling the audience with tales of her life from her upbringing in Huddersfield back in the 1970s to running a 2,000-acre sheep hill farm at Ravenseat above Keld at the head of Swaledale. Full of humour, but with also some moments of poignancy, the audience lapped up the tales that Amanda recounted. 
 
Some of the comments on the Otley Town Facebook page afterwards were as follows: 
This was a very entertaining evening and was well presented by Amanda on her life as a shepherdess and also how her young happy family join in as little helpers – Joan Mangeolles 
Really enjoyed this – so interesting and she is wonderful – Pat Jackson

What a great lady she is, brilliant, nice couple – Marguerite Enoch 
Very enjoyable night. She is an amazing lady – David Ive 
Amanda presented at the Harrogate International Literature Festivals 
It was such a pleasure to have Amanda Owen at the Raworths Harrogate Literature Festival. She was aspirational yet approachable with a very natural presence on stage that held the audience captivated. Amanda conducted herself with warmth, humour and professionalism throughout her time with us. The pictures she shared of life of the farm added a lovely visual dimension to her event and the feedback we received afterwards showed the audience loved her open and engaging style and found her stories an inspiration.

'An Evening with Amanda Owen' at The Rotary Club of Thorne in South Yorkshire 
The Rotary Club of Thorne in South Yorkshire held a fund raising event in October 2017 entitled 'An Evening with Amanda Owen'. Over 140 people came to listen to 'The Yorkshire Shepherdess' in our local village hall. She captivated and enthralled her audience with snippets of her life in Huddersfield as a young girl with a clear vision of what she wanted to become.  
 
As time progressed she met her future husband Clive in the beautiful and isolated farm of Ravenseat in the North Yorkshire. There she has lived with husband Clive (Colin, ask Julia Bradbury about that) and brought up nine children in what seems an idyllic setting. A slide show of photographs taken in and around the farm by the family gave us fabulous views and insights of life in Ravenseat. She is renowned authoress, inspired by the books written by Alf White (James Herriot) of 'All Creatures Great and Small'. 
 
The whole audience felt as if they were part of Amanda’s family and went home with big smiles on their faces.
