Amanda Lindhout: Unearthing Our Resiliency

Amanda Lindhout, the bestselling author of A House in the Sky, which chronicles her abduction and imprisonment at the hands of Somalian hostage takers, has captured the hearts of readers around the world. Her talks contain her overarching message of peace, empathy, and education, as well as address the stigma surrounding mental health issues.

When Amanda visited us last month, she left us awed by her personal strength and capacity for forgiveness while sharing some of the backstory that lead to her heart-wrenching experience.

Amanda is a sought after, internationally renowned speaker who is trusted by big brands to deliver a life-changing, transformational keynote experience. She has presented to audiences of all sizes — from Richard Branson’s living room to an arena of 20,000 — and she always creates intimacy with the women and men in the room through her emotional, powerful storytelling.
