The following are other selected testimonials from audiences at different speaking engagements over several years.

  • Excellent speaker. Great presentation style.
  • Very refreshing to hear the people part of project management. This is probably the most important key of success, but is rarely discussed.
  • Dr. Amanfu obviously is very people oriented. You need to keep him coming here!
  • Definitely learned and will put into practice what I thought I already knew.
  • Got our attention. Good clearly understandable voice. Well paced and informative.
  • Awesome speech, with lots of info. Thanks for the education.
  • Liked the fact that you involved the audience with questions
  • Lots of laughter, great delivery, very informative.
  • Excellent – can’t wait to hear more about you and your mentor, Dr. John C. Maxwell.

  • The conference was a resounding success in large part due to the high caliber of presentations that were made to the eager participants. We cannot say enough about the strongly positive responses we received from conference participants on the presentation feedback forms. They were overwhelmingly positive on both the content and delivery of the conference topics. A special thanks goes out to our Keynote Speaker, Dr Joseph Amanfu, whose enthusiastic presentation was particularly well received. Alan Barnes, PMP, VP Education, PMI-NEFL, Jacksonville FL.
  • Joe’s presentation was JOE. It was not the slides. To reference Joe’s slides out of context, without the total Joe experience does not have much value. Having said that, of course I want a copy – but that is only for my own reference to remind me of Joe’s great presentation. Just call me middle of the fence on the issue.
  • Thanks Joe! I thought you might like to know, after glancing through many of the survey forms filled out by the attendees, your session, and you in particular, received many wonderful compliments on the presentation and content of your discussion. In fact, every survey that was filled out from your session requested that you appear on the program again. – Aimee Rupe, Event Manager, Florida Digital Government Summit – A Government Technology Executive Leadership Forum
