Imagine a pocket rocket of energy and enthusiasm able to amuse, engage and then educate even the most ardent if sceptics. Amy is on a crusade to “dot” New Zealand, and I’d highly recommend you need her call to arms…or dots, as it were. For personal development or for groups looking for professional development, or even an entertaining professional speaker who can give an audience a taste of the dots and leave them wanting more, Amy Scott is an investment. However, don’t let her near coffee or energy drinks – it would be like pouring petrol on a fire!

Amy’s presentations just make you want to get into it. She exudes fun and enthusiasm. She is highly entertaining and a ball of energy.
David Moore Workforce Advisor at South Canterbury District Health Board July 9, 2015
My organization has benefited from Amy Scott’s programme “Get Dotted” on several occasions.
Amy is the most passionate, professional & people oriented speaker we have had the pleasure of engaging.
As a result of the programme, the interaction between our staff members has seen a positive change due to their understanding of each other’s behavourial traits.
Amy would make a huge difference to any large or small organisation.
Jane Henton Group Administrator - Network & Customer Operations at Wellington Water Ltd July 9, 2015
Amy presented the DOT experience a couple of years ago. While intially I was unsure of the experience I actually found the whole process both fun and useful.
Amy’s bright, bubbly and positive approach enhanced the experience and made me more comfortable to contribute and get involved.
The DOTS is a useful tool to managing staff and identifying how people respond to different situations.
We still use DOTS today and it is often the topic of staff meeting or tearooms conversations
Jeff Paulin Finance Manager at Horowhenua District Council July 9, 2015
Amy really opened my eyes to the way we all communicate through the ‘dotting’ process. I had a one day course with Amy and left with some very valuable information that I could apply through all areas of my life. An amazing and very inspiring lady who is able to keep her audience engaged throughout the whole course. I recommend her courses to anyone and everyone.
Melissa Bullmore World Organic Consultant and Team Leader July 9, 2015
Being ‘dotted’ has changed the way I communicate with people. I could not believe the insight I gained from hearing Amy speak. Now that I know what dots my family are it has made life much easier.
Amy’s speaking is perfect for any market – from children to high powered business people I would doubt that there is anyone that would not benefit from hearing her speak. A high energy presenter, Amy is professional and great fun to work with.

Amy has run several ‘Get dotted’ courses for us at Otago Polytechnic – that a third of our staff have now been through. In my view she creates the essential atmosphere for learning – high energy, great fun, excellent resources and tons of real life application and involvement for participants. Amy has given us a common language that has built understanding of self and others which has really strengthened our communication. We will keep working with Amy and I highly recommend her and the Get dotted programme.
Matt Carter Director HR & Student Services Otago Polytechnic July 9, 2015
It is a pleasure to recommend Amy – Amy has ‘Dotted’ staff in a couple of organisations that I have worked for and feedback has been great. Staff speak enthusiastically about the day and how they are using their ‘dots’ in day to day communication. Thanks heaps Amy, for your high energy and great purple personality,I look forward to working with you in the future!

My first introduction to Dot’s and the personality behind it (Amy) was not long after completing accreditation as a DisC facilitator – DisC is an assessment tool that has a number of modules of which “behavioural or personality assessment” is one that I have used in many HR processes.
My initial exposure to Dot’s was with some scepticism as the science of behaviours is complicated and requires a significant amount of study (in my opinion) to master.
Amy’s infectious personality quickly breaks down barriers which allows the learning and sharing to happen at a significant pace – as an observer (hats the way I saw myself) I could see the “light bulb moments” happening – the message of understanding quickly turned into empowerment.
I brought Amy and the Dots to my workplace 4 years ago – a measure of how successful Dot’s has been is listening to staff sharing their “Dot’s” with others in everyday conversation – its almost like sharing your own personal manual with those who you engage with.
We will regularly run Dotted learning experiences.

I would recommend Get Dotted, my team at work still talk about who is what colour and the traits that ‘colour’ presents. It has been a useful tool for all our staff both professionally and personally. We even find the staff attempting to guess the colour of children in our preschool so they can better work with them….saying things like “maybe he is a purple?”
Amy presents her Get Dotted session with energy and enthusiasm. It is a fun and entertaining workshop. If you get the chance to go to one I say GO!
Donna Laing Masterton Family Education and Support Centre July 9, 2015
I had a brief taste of Amy and her “dots” at a conference I attended in 2014, and in 2015 had the opportunity to participate in a full day’s course. Amy is AMAZING as a presenter and facilitator of this valuable information – not only did I learn an enormous amount (which has been invaluable both at work and on a day to day basis in helping me understand the way people communicate), but I also had a lot of fun! If you haven’t been “dotted”, I recommend you remedy this as quickly as possible!
Anna Garland Associate at Simpson Grierson July 9, 2015
Amy is one of the most dynamic people I have ever met. If you are looking for someone to inspire your staff, professional group, students or community group then this is the person for you. Amy brings a wealth of energy, passion, commitment, and above all pragmatism to her work which people respond to. You cannot help but be enthused by her and her dots.
Unlike many of the personality and communication styles that I have been exposed to in the past, I immediately responded to dots. It is simple, but very effective, to the extent that I use the information garnered from Amy on a daily basis. I can assess people’s dots in about 5 seconds and have improved my own communication styles as a result – allowing me to be much more effective and increasing the value of my internal and external relationships.
At a time when we are all being asked to do more with less, being an effective communicator is worth its weight in gold.
Paula J Smith ARIM, MSc, BSc (Hons) Practice Lead, Information Management at Optimation July 9, 2015
Amy’s personality is infectious and engaging, inviting you to open up and look at yourself and others in ways you hadn’t before. Highly recommended sessions for anyone, even those that think they know themselves well. A refreshing look at the way we interact with people in our everyday life. And it can be fun trying to work out what other peopleâs dots may be too!
Steve Griffiths VAULT Senior Infrastructure Engineer at Strategic Group July 9, 2015
Amy is fabulous! We rolled DOT’s level 1 out across the company and the feedback from our staff couldn’t have been better; both regarding Amy’s delivery of the workshop but also the content. Amy is highly engaging in her delivery, and through her great ability of story telling she is able to demonstrate the relevance and importance of DOT’s, even to the most cynical!
