Amanda gave us an amazing and entertaining session on Zoom for our members. She was engaging and so relaxed in her farmhouse with a lovely fire in the background having already had a full on morning with drama all the way..... Amanda has a unique and heart warming view of life - time listening to her is never wasted.  
We all left the session inspired and smiling and completely overwhelmed by her simple but obviously very happy way of living at Ravenseat. Do not miss the opportunity to attend a session whether live or via an online platform - you will not be disappointed!

“Amanda very kindly agreed to a talk with the year 7 pupils of her old school, Newsome Academy. We'd wanted her to talk about aspiration, and communicate to our pupils that anything is possible if they work hard and believe in themselves. Amanda definitely provided this, the pupils were so engaged with her talk and interested in her story. There was a real buzz in the school after she left- you could tell she'd inspired them to think about their own goals and dreams. 
Amanda was approachable and down to earth, making the pupils feel valued and showing genuine interest in their questions and comments. It was clear that she cared about making a positive impact on them, and that this was a higher priority for her than self-promotion or book sales. It was a real pleasure to meet her.” - Newsome Academy.

"Amanda brought a breath of fresh Yorkshire air to the NEC when she paid a visit to BETA International to tell us about her extraordinary life as a shepherdess.
