Inspirational Workshops and Training

Do your line managers need a boost in confidence and skills?

Is your team struggling with stress and overwhelm?

Is matrix management proving tricky for the diverse players involved?

I love to run team and skills development workshops and courses for my clients. I work with universities, small businesses, accelerators, corporate networks, professional organisations and charities to optimise their performance and navigation of the inevitable stresses and strains of the workplace. I am a module leader at Cardiff Business School, and have supported hundreds of MBA students, Masters students, and undergraduates since 2012 to develop their presentation, teamwork, project management and employability skills.


I design all my workshops to be lively and engaging. I aim to wake up, engage, and inspire whomever I’m working with. Delegates’ favourite topics include:

  • Habits of Success: how to trust yourself and build a confident mindset
  • The neuroscience of stress and success
  • Learn how to master the imposter syndrome and silence your inner critic
  • Build your impact, presence and authority
  • Handle conflict with grace and skill
  • Line manage and hold your team to account
  • Power Up: Productivity vs Procrastination

Amy delivered team strengths training for our team after a difficult period of restructuring and change. The resources and tools she provided and the amazing atmosphere she created during the session allowed us to connect properly as a team and gave us the space to appreciate each members unique contribution. After the training we have often referred to the session and it has helped us build and grow into a highly productive and supportive team.

Amy Armstrong workshops

Amy provided a team building workshop as part of one of our programmes. The two-hour session she provided supported multidisciplinary teams of diverse academics who had not met prior to her workshop. Her enthusiasm, positivity and interactive style engaged the whole room and the feedback from participants was unanimously positive… she even received a round of applause from a room of quite reserved people! The skills and tools she imparted have already been utilized by the teams and have provided a fantastic foundation for the rest of the three-month programme. We highly recommend Amy and will certainly be using her for workshop delivery and support in the future.

“Amy is an amazing teacher. I found her so inspiring.”

Amy Armstrong is an amazing teacher. I found her so inspiring and am sure I will remember the positive effect she has had on my life forever. She is very professional, enthusiastic, understanding and a great listener. I loved how hands-on it was, with small amounts of relevant theory interspersed along the way. The best part for me was all the ‘life tips’ – useful techniques we will actually use in later life.
