Amanda Dawson

Brand & Communications

Amanda Dawson is a results-driven leader and community-builder with a passion for driving growth and achieving organizational goals.

Amanda has successfully built, led, and exited two agencies ––most recently, HELL YES! , a speakers bureau dedicated to empowering teams through engaging storytelling.

In 2019, Amanda spoke at the AFTD's Annual Conference and was the keynote speaker for that year's Hope Rising Gala.

In 2020, Amanda led the #ftdhotshotchallenge––a community-driven, grassroots campaign that used social media and hot sauce to raise awareness of Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) and funds for the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration’s (AFTD’s) mission. This was the largest grassroots event in the AFTD community’s history, which inspired heightened awareness and multiple offshoot projects. The campaign raised over $200,000 for AFTD, including a large number of small, community-generated donations.

In her spare time, Amanda loves spending time with her band of beautiful boys: Dom, Hugo, Leo, and Beau.
