Testimonials Amanda always receives extremely positive feedback from the talks she gives and below is just a small selection
“The event was the first time I had organised something on this scale but it turned out to be a great success and a great fundraiser too. The people at Criccieth Memorial Hall said it was the first time they had seen the place so full for about 50 years. It was a memorable evening and the feedback I have received has been fantastic. We'll definitely have Amanda back sometime in the future....she was a real hit!"
"Fantastic show from Amanda tonight at the Len Pick Memorial Evening here in Bourne. The change of altitude from Upper Swaledale to sea level in the Fens of Linclolnshire obviously did not phase her. She connected brilliantly with the packed audience (who would have stayed all night listening to her inspiring stories if we would have let them!)"
"Amanda Owen was our guest Speaker at our Presidents Dinner Black Tie Event in aid of the Royal Welsh Show. It was no effort to sell the 300 tickets which flew out for a complete sellout. Amanda is down to earth, and came across very well, with the evening being enjoyed by all age groups. Her relaxed humour & her life story on how she got to where she is today was amazing. I highly recommend her."
"Last night, The Rotary Club of Pontefract hosted a Speakers Dinner for around 220 people at the Kings Croft Hotel , Pontefract, featuring Amanda Owen as our Celebrity Guest Speaker. The decision to have Amanda has proved to be one of the best the Club ever made. We could have sold twice the tickets. The capacity crowd was reached without ever even advertising the event, simply by word of mouth. On the night, this modest, self effacing lady captivated the audience with her down to earth stories of her life, her sense of humour and had them in the palm of her hand all the way through the delivery of her talk. A beautiful and amazing lady, loved by everyone who saw her that night." - The Rotary Club of Pontefract, October 2019
"Amanda was just wonderful! – such a positive and enthusiastic presence, she certainly made our pupils feel that anything was possible. Her talk was both entertaining and insightful, beautifully illustrated with her photographs and the Q and A session that followed was very amusing. She certainly had our audience (850+) absolutely hanging on her every word!” - Mercers' Lectures at Dauntsey's School, Wiltshire, September 2019
"On a hot summer’s evening last week Amanda Owen the Yorkshire Shepherdess, breezed into the Witham to share with us the story of her personal and inspiring life. The story of how this “townie” became a shepherdess, farmer’s wife and mother of nine children, living on a remote hill farm ‘Ravenseat’ in Upper Swaledale was delivered with warmth and humour. The audience lapped up the many and varied tales from the farm and enjoyed seeing the slide show of her family going about their business during the ever changing seasons. We were given a real insight into her rather chaotic but extremely varied daily life. Her perseverance to follow her dream and her positive message shone through and should prove as an inspiration to us all." - The Witham, Barnard Castle, July 2019
"Thank you for organising the event. Please convey my thanks to Amanda what a lovely lady and an excellent speaker. What a superb evening was held by all who attended. I have received many positive comments, this morning a local veterinary surgeon contacted me to say that he has attended many talks but never one as good as Amanda’s." - Banchory Show, Deeside Agricultural Society, July 2019
"The event was a real success. Amanda was very well received and drew the biggest crowd of the day in our Country Theatre. She was extremely entertaining. People loved meeting her and she spent time signing books and chatting which went down well. A Yorkshire lass had a great response from a Lancashire crowd!!!" - Great Eccleston Show, July 2019
"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. We found her totally captivating and thoroughly entertaining. Amanda is a talented storyteller, the recaller of memories in the most minute detail and a master of anecdotes, which tumble thick and fast in a heady mix of the serious and absolutely hilarious. The show’s visitors and exhibitors – and fellow celebrity guests – all fell under her spell." - British Equestrian Trade Association
"Amanda was extremely down to earth and made not only the guests but the staff feel at ease during the question and answers session. All of the guests remarked on how inspirational she is to listen to and following on from the event we had numerous guests email us to thank us personally for such a lovely afternoon. The communication between yourselves was always timely and helpful - a wonderful event all round. We wouldn’t hesitate to book Amanda following the release of her third book!" - Coniston Hotel
