The Impact of One Decision – Version for Corporate Safety Stand Downs, Safety Meetings and Conferences (Includes Marijuana in the workplace)
Motivational & Impaired Driving Prevention Speaker
Life is a sequence of one decisions, which ones will you make? It’s not only impaired driving, but every decision you make in your life that impacts someone else. Using her personal story of losing her Dad to an impaired driver while she was working as a police officer as an example, Amanda expertly shows students just how far one decision truly can reach.
Amanda Oling grew up in the small rural agricultural hamlet of Tomahawk, Alberta and still lives rural to this day near Beaverlodge, Alberta. After completing University, she began a career in law enforcement that lasted for 15 years. She was used to seeing the fall out of other people's decisions, but never in her wildest dreams did she think that one day someone else’s decision would affect her life in a drastic way and end up costing her something precious in her life.
Amanda is a very powerful and impactful professional speaker now and her presentation "The Impact of One Decision" leaves audiences with just one question: "what are you willing to lose?" Described as attitude changing, inspirational and life altering, Amanda's presentation focuses on the risks and consequences associated with the decisions we sometimes take for granted.
