As the owner and operator of Accrete, Amanda exercises the technical, financial and management responsibilities associated with running a business, as well providing all frontline services. She is responsible for the design, development and delivery of tailored leadership and management training to a wide range of public and private sector clients as well as the facilitation of planning days, culture refresh sessions and team building workshops.
Complementing these endeavours, Amanda plays an active role in supporting community organisations through volunteering her time as a facilitator and trainer, most recently delivering a range of workshops for the BPW Darwin 2021 and 2022 Mentoring Programs, and speaking at the 2021 'No One Left Behind' conference.
