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!

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

She is funny, dynamic and engaging!
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.

“Funny Motivational Dynamic Uplifting Empowering “
Each year for Nurses Week we attempt to have a dynamic, uplifting, motivating and empowering speaker present for our nurses and when we heard Amy Dee speak at an Ohio Nurses Event we knew we had found our speaker. Amy really knows how to reach each person in the audience at a personal level. She is a fantastic story teller that makes you feel like you were transported back in time – experiencing it all with her. Our Nurses laughed so much and some shed tears and everyone left the room glowing with a new found energy, excitement and passion.
Here are some of the comments from our Nurses from the evaluations of the presentation:
“This was an amazing talk ! I laughed, cried and experienced all of the emotions in between. Thank you for coming to Summa !”
“Wonderful speaker ! Thought provoking, compassionate, funny and blended helpful information throughout the session.”
Fantastic speaker. Enjoyed her sense of humor, teaching and stories. It was nice to be able to reflect on sweating the small things in life.”
“She was such an amazing speaker and had so much information from all her experience. I could listen to her all day. If she has other presentations I would love to hear them.”
“Amy Dee was an excellent speaker. I really enjoyed her presentation. She was real and uplifting. Please keep speakers like her coming to Summa.”
Thank you again for serving so beautifully as our keynote speaker this year. Deven and I were just talking today…it’s going to be difficult to find someone as funny and inspiring for next year. So many of the participants have sent emails…and they ALL noted how much they loved having you join us. I hope you will consider joining us again at some time in the future. It was lovely meeting you and Steve.
Recommendation from the OHIMA 2019 conference:
Our attendees LOVED Amy Dee! She was not only engaging the entire time – but she had the audience rolling with laughter.
With an exceptional delivery, her energy, singing and message were a fantastic opening presentation for our conference.

“The compliments keep coming in long after the event”
“Amy Dee was outstanding and really impressed our members. The compliments keep coming in long after the event. Her experience in healthcare and outlook on life combined for a great keynote at our annual convention. Thoroughly entertaining, very thoughtful and yet hilarious! All with an amazing demeanor before, during and after the show and a real connection with our owners, operators, administrators and nurse members.”
“Great attitude inspired to help others”
Everything from engaging with Amy Dee in the beginning through her attending and speaking at our event was wonderful. Amy is a genuine human that uses her experiences and stories to move a crowd to think differently through laughter. There were times where I looked around the room and didn’t see anyone that could contain themselves from busting out in laughter and other times in tears!
In today’s fast paced world it is enjoyable to have a speaker that doesn’t come with a 100 slide PowerPoint deck, but instead comes with a great attitude inspired to help others.
I think Amy Dee is a great story teller and facilitator. I would recommend her to any company looking to try something different that appeals to your entire workforce.
“Exceptional. Inspirational. Life changing.”
It was pleasure meeting you our recent CSR convention. Without exception, the comments we received on your presentation were exceptional. Clearly, you were the highlight of the convention!
To give you some idea on how you were received, the feedback ranged from “exceptional, inspirational, motivational” and to “life changing”. Virtually every evaluation form had you rated at a “5” (our highest), with some additional comments rating you a “10” and one even rating you a “12”!… Suffice it to say, you made an impact and a difference.
Thanks again… for the mark you made on this year’s successful CSR Convention. Your role was much of the reason for the success.
“Couldn’t have asked for a better presentation”
I wanted to send you a note of gratitude for sharing your wisdom and spirit with the attendees of the Sanford Nursing Symposium. Your message was delivered with authenticity, laughter, and was the perfect end to the day. Evaluation comments from attendees show we couldn’t have asked for more from your presentation. In addition, you were very accommodating and easy to work with which is always appreciated. Many thanks!
“You are equally hilarious and moving!”
Please accept my heartfelt gratitude for the absolutely amazing job that you did at Polk State College Foundation’s 12th Annual Wise & Witty Women and Many Magnificent Men Luncheons in celebration of Women’s History Month! You are equally hilarious and moving! I received innumerable positive comments about your presentation, many people saying this was the best one yet! In addition to your side splitting humor, I’ve had guests comment about changing the way they look at things. I, too, have done that by trying to find more humor in aggravating and frustrating encounters to help alleviate stress. You are an absolute delight and I am so glad our paths crossed.
“Everyone left with a smile on their face”
Amy Dee was one of our speakers at this year’s Women in Community Banking Summit. She was amazing!! Amy combined her music, humor and knowledge to deliver an uplifting and thought-provoking keynote to all our attendees. . . she had our audience captivated and laughing, not only at her wonderful message and humor, but also at themselves. Amy was our closing speaker and everyone left with a smile on their face. Here are just a few of the comments from our attendees:
“Great message — loved the way she kept the audience engaged.”
“She was hilarious.”
“Wonderfully energetic and funny.”
“Very funny and entertaining — over her motto of changing how you view things.”
I would highly recommend bringing Amy to your next function or meeting. She was wonderful to work with and made me look like the best meeting planner ever!
“Amy brought the ‘WOW’ to our employee celebration week”
Amy has a remarkable ability to captivate the audience through humor, story-telling, and music—providing a memorable experience that our employees are still raving about. She is truly a positive difference-maker!
“A pure success”
She knocked the socks off close to 600 attendees with her humor, music, and true life stories. She is an inspiration to us all and guides us to never give up on our dreams. Our event was a pure success thanks to her.
Funny Motivational Speaker Amy Dee was a huge success
Amy did an amazing job kicking off our conference with a unique blend of inspiration, information, and laughs! Her presentation was overwhelmingly well-received and it set the tone for the rest of the meeting. Thank you, Amy, we sincerely appreciated having you!
“Amy challenged us to take ownership”
Amy Dee was the keynote speaker at our 43rd Annual State Conference. She is a dynamic speaker who relates to diverse audiences with her real-life issues. Amy’s positive perspective showed us how to overcome our daily challenges [and] view and accept change for our own well-being and to make our lives more productive. She… brought so much laughter and joy to our audience. During her Everyday Hero keynote, she made us realize the importance of our role in school nutrition for children and challenged us to take ownership in our business.
“Connecting with many personalities, cultures, ages”
Thank you for your help with our Assisted Living Nurses Conference. Your presentations were uplifting, entertaining and enlightening. What refreshing topics! You presented in a manner that was both humorous and entertaining, while still getting your message across to the entire audience. That’s a hard combination to achieve, but you did it. The feedback from our audience was great! Your ability to connect with a variety of personalities, cultures, and ages is a true gift! I’m looking forward to working with you again.
“Appreciate your professionalism and flexibility”
Thank you for bringing your beautiful smile and humor to our annual UPMC Altoona Women’s Night Out! Your “Bold Women Bliss” message was hilariously entertaining and thought provoking.
