After Mandi Stanley graduated from Amory High School in Amory, MS, she began her career as a classified ad proofreader and editor with a small newspaper in the South. A move to Dallas, Texas, led to a full-time position as a technical proposal writer for a healthcare firm.

Audiences appreciate her platform enthusiasm, interactive style, and content-rich messages.

In 2003, she was designated a CSP, Certified Speaking Professional.

She is a professional member of the National Speakers Association, the leading organization for experts who speak professionally. She is a faculty member with the American Management Association, and three years ago was presented with the AMA’s quality award and first-place ranking in market share.

Today Mandi Stanley, CSP has moved from the campus podium to the corporate classroom, traveling throughout North America inspiring business leaders to overcome organizational obstacles and deliver powerful written and oral presentations. With more than 3,300 platform hours to her credit, this seminar circuit veteran has helped more than 23,300 participants combine the right words and style to get the winning edge they need. Primarily, she works with business leaders who want to boost their image and with organizations that want to gain credibility in the marketplace.
