Amanda Smethurst
Senior Consultant


Amanda joined Liz Amos in 2012, undertaking executive research projects for senior positions in arts and museums. She has worked within the arts and public sectors for over 20 years, at a senior level within arts organisations, local authorities and for Arts Council England as Director, London. Through these roles, Amanda has developed significant experience of project delivery, strong people management, financial and strategic planning processes, and change management programmes. She was awarded a Clore Fellowship in 2008, and is a Fellow of the RSA.

A theme that has run through Amanda's career is her enjoyment of working with organisations and individuals to support their development. This continues now, in her work at Liz Amos Associates, as well as in her work as a freelance consultant, facilitator and professional coach working with clients including the Clore Leadership Programme, the Poetry Society, A New Direction, and senior leaders from across the sector.

Amanda also has a significant experience as a Board member or Chair of a number of organisations, and is currently the Chair of UP Projects, a visual arts organisation that operates as a gallery without walls. Originally trained in fine art, Amanda has recently returned to her creative roots and is enjoying developing her practice in ceramics.
