Amanda Colleen Williams Speaker

In addition to being an 17 times platinum selling songwriter and music publisher, Amanda is also frequently called on as a non-attorney copyright and international intellectual property (IP) expert.


Her humorous way of explaining the copyright bundle from the songwriter’s point of view is both entertaining and educational, making her a favorite speaker, presenter and workshop leader.


The following are a few highlights from Amanda Colleen Williams’ professional speaker and panelist resume portfolio:
