Advisory Board

Amanda Street

Amanda is a workplace sleep coach helping employees and employers reach their full potential through prioritising and optimising sleep quality and quantity.

She delivers practical and pragmatic speeches, workshops and trainings that enable participants to better understand the bedrock of wellbeing – sleep. She passionately believes that sleep underpins every aspect of our waking lives, our productivity, performance and most importantly happiness, both at work and at home.

Prior to launching Sleep on It, Amanda spent over 25 years working for, and with, large corporations focusing on maximising the daytime performance of leaders, teams and individuals in organisations across the globe.

She has now turned her attention to ‘night-time’ performance, with a comprehensive and practical set of techniques and tools that transform sleep practices and habits, enabling long-term and sustainable behavioural change to boost physical, mental and emotional wellness.

As part of the Sleep on It program Amanda offers, one to many, one to few and one to one interventions such as:

  • ZzzzTalks – Teach Yourself to Sleep
  • Sleep to Leap – Team sleep prioritisation workshops
  • Individual Sleep Prioritisation and Optimisation 1 to 1 Coaching
  • Sleep@work – Environmental and Cultural Workplace assessment and program development

Rhonda Siddall

Rhonda has almost 25 years’ experience in the communication and medical education industries. She has contributed to national newspapers, women’s magazines, digital health sites, professional titles (medical, nursing, pharmacy, social services’ audiences), and worked in the television industry as a documentary and development producer.

Rhonda has also worked extensively as a writer in the healthcare industry, producing educational material for patients and healthcare professionals, and as a healthcare consultant supporting the development of educational programmes, and organising educational and training events. Her experience covers a range of healthcare and therapeutic fields.

Rhonda has been recognised for excellence in medical journalism, and for increasing understanding of mental health as part of the team that produced an award-winning documentary for Channel 4. She is passionate about mental health, and is committed to helping others suffering from mental health issues through The Shaw Mind Foundation.

As a mother of two teenage children, Rhonda believes that supporting children and young people to flourish and cope with the emotional demands of modern-day life is crucial, and that mental health advice and education for children and young people is vital to this.

Eric Fragale

Eric Fragale started out working for a U.S. Advertising Company based on Madison Avenue N.Y.C., who mainly dealt with Real Estate Campaigns.

When he returned to the UK ten years later, he found himself teaching media at a Lincolnshire based college, along with starting a property portfolio which has had 25 years of growth and has consisted of shop outlets and residential.

Twelve years ago, Eric became a Grammar School Parent Governor, of which he still finds himself a Link Governor. Eric takes great pleasure in working alongside some very gifted teachers, all of whom share the same positive outcome in wanting to get the best out of the children and young people they work with.

Eric has experience in working with charitable organisations and have previously raised vital funds for Leukaemia charities – a cause very close to his heart. He also has experience in speaking to small groups or individuals about the subject, and how to deal with the mental health aspect that can affect people when diagnosed with an illness of this nature.

This is one of the reasons he feels very honoured to have been asked to sit on The Shaw Mind Foundation Advisory Board, and is looking forward to playing a part in driving the charity forward.
