Speaking and Workshops

I deliver talks, participate in panel discussions, judge pitch challenges and moderate at international conferences and summits. My workshops de-mystify de-mystify the winning elements of a story and enable attendees to spot their own story and pitch it to the press.  Other topics include how to prepare for media engagement, how to nurture and maintain those relationships – and why it matters. Each workshop is bespoke, tailored to a wide range of audience sizes and can incorporate varying degrees of participation. Attendees routinely praise the unique value and practical application of these workshops.


My background in news, current affairs and business means I am comfortable moderating a wide range of topics in the private and public sector.

Working together

I collaborate with conference and event organizers to tailor content for a talk or workshop. In my preparation as a moderator, I research subjects and speak with industry insiders to illustrate and highlight guests’ expertise to facilitate engaging and memorable discussions.

Inclusive Finance Summit – The Hague, September 2018

Spark.me – Montenegro, May 2015


Your talk is very inspirational. Through your talk and workshop, I realized I was focusing too much on a perfect product, extracting and looking at the facts or data. I never thought about how to tell a good story and the impact it can have! It was a great pleasure and very valuable listening to your talk.

It’s not often that you come across a combination of a talented journalist and a speaker like Amy.

Amy’s presentation covered the importance of storytelling and the relationship between start-ups and journalism. She presented three stories about unusual entrepreneurial successes from all over the world, and urged attendees to find their own unique story. Spark.me’s crowd loved Amy’s presentation which was full of real-world journalism tips, presented in a no-nonsense way. I sincerely recommend Amy as a speaker to every conference program director!

In 2017, Amy Guttman’s outstanding reputation as a reporter and journalist prompted us to invite her as a moderator for two of our signature Panels for the prestigious Asian Leadership Conference x Hello Tomorrow Korea. Our confidence in her abilities was magnified when pre-conference, after discussing her sessions and defining the direction of each session, Amy adopted a strong pro-active approach. Not only did she continue to develop the session’s content, but she also co-ordinated the related program structure with our various speakers. Our workload was considerably lightened by her hands-on approach, an absolute boon for us during an exceptionally stressful time. Amy’s sessions ran very smoothly, and she was not only able to clearly direct her speakers, but also managed to engage the audience in doing so. She exerted a professionalism and knowledge of the topics covered that was second to none and drew an audience into the room to over-capacity. Working with Ms Guttman was an immense pleasure, and we will  unreservedly employ her skills as a moderator for all our major conferences in the future.
