Amanda Blesing is one of Australia’s newest thinkers and speakers on women and ambition – how to spark it, tackle it, tame it and then channel it into producing a healthier, more inspired and highly productive workforce. She is passionate about gender diversity in organisations, government and community, with a particular interest in helping organisations assess risk better and make better informed decisions.
For the past 20 years Amanda worked her way through the ranks of the association world with her last role as Chief Executive Officer of SOCAP Australia (Society of Consumer Affairs Professionals). She now runs her own consultancy at The Ambition Revolution where she speaks and mentors ambitious professionals as they work their way in, and into, leadership roles. She joined ARPI in early 2015 and became a Director in December 2015.
