Amanda Selvaratnam

Amanda has done a fantastic job of chairing the Conference Committee for 2019. She has steered the committee through a new process and has been really proactive in securing speakers, recommending local companies/attractions for site vists and provided support and guidance to the PraxisAuril Exec Team. Amanda has been extremely responsive to emails and phone calls, and has made herself available to meet when we needed to have more in-depth conversations. Her experience in managing teams has been extremely valuable in the whole process, and it's clear to see that she is an experienced leader. She is down to earth, and has made the process enjoyable - even fun! She has been there when guidance was needed, and has given support/back-up when required - her professionalism is clear for all of the Committee to see. This isn't an easy task with a Committee of 17 people who are spread across the UK, all with very busy day jobs - but they have been very engaged due to Amanda's management style and commitment. Amanda has gone above and beyond to make the conference a success and deserves to be recognised for doing such a fantastic job!
