Amy spoke at our recent nursing leadership conference. She was engaging, funny and expertly wove stories that helped cement the key points of her talk. She focused on change in her presentation with us, which is something we are constantly striving to adapt to, anticipate or lead. Her humorous approach to the subject was exactly what we needed. Laughter truly is the best medicine, and we had a wonderful keynote address on an important and relevant topic, while enjoying every minute of it.

Thank you, Amy, for having such a great approach to our passion and work!

Amy had our audience laughing, crying and asking for more!  She asked great questions about the needs of our members and tailored her message to accommodate our needs.  She was easy to work with and if my audience changed annually, I’d invite her back every year!

I am happy to serve as a reference for you – I’m still hearing how much people enjoyed your presentation!

Amy spoke on “Resilience” at the 2022 Arizona SHRM Conference, and it was delightful!

Amy was our last keynote speaker, and she really brought the house down with her energetic and humorous style.  Her blend of storytelling, comedy and song were truly memorable and Amy gave us tools to manage our interactions in difficult and even toxic situations.  Leading with kindness was key and I know many attendees took home ideas on how to better communicate at work and at home.

I would recommend Amy to any group considering a keynote speaker.

Amy Dee was the best choice we could have made for our opening keynote for our first in-person conference since the start of the pandemic. Her engaging and humorous tone throughout the session kept the interest of everyone in the audience. I actually think she outshined every other speaker we had – which doesn’t happen often!

Comments from attendees:

·         She was my favorite presenter by far. Engaging, funny, educational. We were captivated by her relatable and relevant tales.

·         What an engaging human being with many strong messages

·         Loved, “When you change the way you look at things, the n you look at change.”

Incredible Way to End our first-in-person-Convention-post-covid


We are so delighted that Amy Dee closed our first in person Convention since COVID. We knew we needed an upbeat, uplifting presentation to send our attendees home with…and boy did she deliver!

Amy’s presentation was nothing short of spectacular…and had all of us belly laughing through most of it! Her sincerity, charm, and message gave us the boost we needed to carry on during these challenging times.

Thank you, Amy!

My name is Amber Fultz and I am the Vice President of the Summer Conference for the Oregon State Chapter of American Association for Women in Community Colleges.

I am writing to recommend Amy Dee, an extremely inspirational keynote speaker that we were fortunate enough to be able to have at our 2021 Summer Conference.

Amy Dee is recognized by audiences across the country as a master storyteller and brilliant comedian. She combines her background in standup comedy and theatre with her RN degree and experience as a successful business owner to deliver hilarious stories and valuable content on the brain and behavior. Her message and music rise above the boundaries of gender, age, and occupation. Amy’s hilarious stories coupled with her phenomenal content propels audiences to live, act, and work better. Her authentic spirit and down to earth approach have made her one of the most sought-after speakers throughout the United States.

Amy Dee spoke at our conference in July and it was amazing! She talked about resilience and our ability to create change through our perspective. She is funny, dynamic and engaging! Her experience and stories are vast and amazing. She takes serious subjects and presents them in a way that is relatable while still thought provoking. Not to mention, her voice is amazing! I would highly recommend her for any engagement you are planning. You will not be disappointed!

Perfect Ending to our Virtual Event

We are extremely grateful to Amy Dee for having been an integral part of our 2020 AHCA Convention. We strategically placed her as the closing speaker of our three-day virtual convention because we knew she would help us end our program with a bang. Amy’s presentation was inspirational, magical and memorable. There were so many things I loved about her presentation—her infectious sense of humor, her genuine nature, her singing and presentation skills, and most of all, her message of harnessing our inner power. This was just what we needed to hear, especially during these challenging times for our long term care community. Here are some comments from our convention attendees so you can see just what I mean.

Loved Amy! She touched my heart and reminded me of my value in helping others. Thank you!”

“The presentation made me feel upbeat and positive. Great for the end of the conference – leaving a CAN DO attitude.”

“This is one of the BEST and funniest presentations I have ever heard. I was laughing so hard I cried. Amy did a great job and the

presentation was a good reminder that we do need to laugh to keep our sanity because the job we do is a difficult one!”

“Amy had a very unique presentation that kept me engaged. Her personal experiences really helped bridge the gap for me. I like the

concept of doing my best to change the way I look at things. I would love to listen to her again.”

“I loved this!!!! She more than engaged her audience. Through her words, she painted and entire movie where the listener could

picture everything she was talking about. How to interact with others through kindness, how to see the humor and positive in each

situation. I was laughing so hard at the end, I’m surprised no one came into my office to see what was going on. Would love to see her

again. Her positive, upbeat energy is contagious.”

From the team here at AHCA, we THANK YOU!

“I will look for many more opportunities to use her”

There are many words that would describe Amy Dee. She is funny, humble, smart, relatable, professional and kind. She moderated our day-long virtual education for behavioral health staff beautifully with her husband as her IT/camera man. Both did an outstanding job! The audience enjoyed her humor as well as the wisdom she shared in memorable ways. She was an absolute joy to work with as well. The kindness she showed afterward to our hospitals with sweet gifts just shows that her heart is there for health care. I will look for many more opportunities to use her and plan to spread her name to all I know.
