“I have brought a lot of speakers to campus over the last 15 years. They include judges, prosecutors, death penalty activists, former Supreme Court law clerks, actors, spiritual advisers, death penalty abolitionists and former criminal defendants. All of their visits and talks taught me things that I didn’t know. None of their speeches, however, moved me the way that Amanda’s did.”

Dr. Todd C. Peppers, Professor of Public Affairs at Roanoke College 

“I’ve booked over 300 world class speakers for various events. I would have to say, Amanda falls into the top 2% of any speakers I’ve ever booked or heard. Her true life story is captivating beyond belief, but the way in which she tells it is extraordinary! I highly recommend her!”

Dwayne Clark, Chairman and CEO of Aegis Living

“Through her book and through her interviews, Amanda has always been exceptionally honest and forthright covering both the good and the bad.  She is inspiring and insightful…a wonderful speaker with an amazing story to tell.”

Denny Cummings, Chairman of the Union League Club Authors Group

“In an engaging and emotional presentation, Amanda challenged the audience to grapple with the complex issues of media bias, misogyny, and government misconduct that plagued her case and led to her wrongful conviction. Our supporters left the evening with an honest and unvarnished window into her journey and a clear understanding that if Amanda Knox can be wrongfully convicted, so too can their children.”

Seth Miller, Executive Director of the Innocence Project of Florida

“Reflective, intelligent, insightful and mature beyond her years – Amanda Knox is captivating. Despite her harrowing experience overseas, Amanda maintains her kindness, her compassion and her true belief in the goodness of mankind. I had the pleasure and honor of being the first to interview Amanda after she was exonerated by the Italian Supreme Court and later after a documentary about the case was released. Every audience member was gripped, and I continue to hear from people she impacted.”

Laura Caldwell, Law Professor & Director of Life After Innocence www.lauracaldwell.com
