Amanda Alexander is an award-winning Professional Certified Coach with a global reputation focused on developing emotionally intelligent and resilient leaders and developing sustainable and fulfilling work-life integration. She transitioned from IT Project Management to Coaching in 2003.
From her original niche supporting working parents Amanda has been featured many times in the media, including broadsheets such as The Times, Sunday Times, Sunday Telegraph and The Independent. She was even hailed as one of the UK’s “Top Life Coaches” by the Daily Mail - a dubious honour ;)!
Amanda is an expert blogger for the Huffington Post, ICF and Psychologies Magazine and is on the panel of Sage Small Business experts.
Her corporate clients include Allianz, BBC, Sage Software, Bank of Scotland, Herbert Smith, Welsh Water, Co-operative Bank, Urenco (BNFL), ICAEW, Citibank, London School of Economics and HSBC.
Amanda is a technophile (except when it goes wrong) and has embraced the world of online teaching as an early adopter: In 2007, she took an in-depth course on creating online training courses and multimedia membership sites. In 2008, she launched her first virtual group coaching programme and in March 2009, she was invited to become a resident expert on Citrix’s newly formed “Workshifting” team. Workshifting was a term Citrix coined as an updated definition for “telecommuting” and “remote working”, incorporating Citrix technology, including their GoToWebinar and GoToMeeting platforms.
This led to Amanda gaining expertise in using webinar technology and she has designed, marketed and facilitated online events and virtual learning environments for both small groups and large audiences of 200+. She has also created several of her own online learning programmes and a membership site, and has taught many coaches to do the same.
