One critical skill has the power to close multi-million-dollar deals, save marriages, advance careers, and align individuals with their best lives.

And it’s finding just the right words to communicate well.

The signature keynote from AmyK Hutchens

Communicating to Connect

Imagine having a well-honed set of skills that can break down barriers, inspire action, solve problems, and create meaningful connections…
What if you had the confidence and courage to share your ideas, speak with conviction, and honor the value of your voice?
And what if your team had those skills, too?
You’d be unstoppable.
That’s where I come in.

Igniting brilliance in your team and helping everyone tackle their toughest leadership, sales, and innovation challenges. With an uncanny ability to simplify the complex and turn theory into practical application, here’s what I can promise you:

Igniting brilliance in your team and helping everyone tackle their toughest leadership, sales, and innovation challenges. With an uncanny ability to simplify the complex and turn theory into practical application, here’s what I can promise you:

1. Audiences LOVE me …

Seriously … I show up in sparkly sneakers, clicker in hand, deliver my thoughts & tools entertainingly, and I’m consistently among the highest-rated speakers at events. I love it! I promise to be approachable on stage and behind the scenes, and I’ll treat your people as if they’re my own. Because they are!

2. Never a crazy demand …

I like all color M&Ms, any reasonable temperature of water is GREAT, and seriously I’m about as low maintenance as they come. After all, it takes a lot just to get me to wear a pair of heels!

When I show up, I’m focused on meeting your needs. If I can make your job easier or your audience happier—I’ll do backflips (metaphorically speaking) to get it done! I also love to help promote events, assist with marketing, and meet & greet your VIPs—just ask.

3. I’m ~ h i p ~ to the current trends …

I take pride in having my pulse on what leaders and companies are experiencing today. I make it a point to turn learning curves, challenges, and opportunities into compelling, engaging stories with experiential exercises that will help you implement your ideas long after I first got your brain buzzing. Scout’s honor.

4. Unparalleled content and delivery

I’ve taught from stages for nearly 3 decades now, plus, pinch me, I’ve got two #1 Amazon bestselling books! No matter how many quirky & irreverent comments I make, I’m still a recognized authority on the critical thinking required behind brilliant Leadership, Emotional Intelligence, and Communication. Go figure!

I’ll partner with you to design a customized program with numerous nuggets (Not just 1-2 “solid” takeaways. *cue eye roll*) that will create a grand-slam experience for your audience.

Got a Minute? Watch me in action—it’s fun!

(At least that’s what I’ve heard.)
