Amy Carter-James was the keynote speaker for our International Women’s Day Breakfast in 2019. Amy was incredibly professional and inspiring as she shared her stories about the women she works with in Mozambique. As a speaker Amy’s delivery is quietly understated but extremely powerful and I would recommend her as a keynote speaker to any organization.
