DMG Radio

It was during the final session of an incredibly boring seminar that Amantha Imber made her first impression on me. She blew me away. She was quirky, engaging, energetic, energising and incredibly insightful. Since then, I've involved Amantha in running my part of the business because she causes people to be more productive in their roles by helping them to be more creative. Amantha is one of those great educators who does not teach things, she helps people to discover things. I have no hesitation in recommending Amantha to any business leader.
Medibank Private

Amantha Imber is a peerless facilitator of any creativity, innovation, thinking-related workshop, conference and gathering. Her seemingly light delivery and interaction with the audiences is the tip of an iceberg of the depth of her science knowledge and understanding of human mind at work. I am a shameless fan of Amantha's work.
Innofuture Conference

Amantha Imber provides her audience with strategies that are directly translatable into practice – no small feat given the phobias and anxieties that a large number of people experience when reflecting upon their own personal levels of creativity. I recently invited Amantha Imber to present both a keynote address and a workshop at a conference for Tasmanian teachers. Amantha’s keynote was exceptional and profoundly moving for me as a person and as an educator. The conference has since proven to be something of a hit. The ‘secret weapon’, in my opinion, was Amantha Imber!
Vocational and Applied Learning

Amantha Imber is not only a wonderful person to deal with, she is creative, organised and so clearly in her element when presenting on stage. Amantha spoke at our Businesswomen's Breakfast Series event in Sydney and the entire audience were both engaged and enthralled during her talk. We all came away with useful and valuable information that was immediately applicable to our careers. I am looking forward to the Melbourne presentation and recommend Amantha to others seeking a dynamic speaker or innovation consultant without hesitation.
Network Central

Amantha Imber presentation was ... a surprise!... original, funny, dynamic, curious, interesting and useful. I had the pleasure to invite, and bet, on Amantha for our annual conference and she exceeded all expectations. I am sure we will have future opportunities to explore.

Like most people, I’m only half listening to the presentations towards the end of conferences. That’s because my attention is focussed on the long list of emails on the BlackBerry I’m hiding under the table. Amantha Imber’s presentation was different. It was compelling, intrusive, provocative and insightful. I powered off my BlackBerry and listened.
