“I was delighted with the way Andrew properly architected our message and helped create a compelling story to convey my message.
The most important aspect of presenting I have learned is the need to entertain while telling your story. The process of getting engagement is not something I ever thought about before working with Andrew”.

"I know that of all the various workshops I have done over the years, yours is by far and away the most useful that I have ever attended. I was selected to give a four-minute pitch at the Meet2Win Oncology partnering convention in Bordeaux yesterday (May 2019). I was the last of 11 pitches and won!  As I was sitting there listening to the other 10 pitches, getting more and more nervous it struck me how different my pitch was from the others, and that was all down to the advice and guidance you gave me. All-day yesterday people were coming up to me commending me on what a clear, attention-grabbing, easy to understand pitch I gave."

"Andrew’s help and guidance was instrumental in preparing us for several vital stage presentations we had last year (2014) in New York, San Francisco, Germany, the UK and Ireland. His outside perspective on how we could better tell our story was incredibly useful, it’s easy to forget that internal stories do not always translate well outside the company. His techniques on communicating vital information points have become our default standard for all company communications. We couldn’t recommend him enough"

"There is no better speaker's coach than Andrew - his very obvious skill as a keynote speaker, coupled with his coaching skills make him the perfect choice for the senior executive looking to polish their personal presentation skills - whether for a one-off event or as part of an ongoing personal development project.
Besides working with Andrew directly I have also recommended him as a keynote to several valued clients - and all of their feedback has been equally excellent".

“I would describe Andrew as 'the Speaker's Speaker'. In other words, anyone who speaks for a living would gain huge value from Andrew's input and I regularly consult with him on my content for talks, keynotes etc. He has also developed a great niche in the area of helping his clients 'pitch for business'. I've heard him deliver this talk and I know that if you think you are a good 'pitcher' yet, you haven't heard Andrew on this topic, then, you're not as good as you can be! His style is effortless, challenging and inspiring .......go hear him asap!"

“I found that watching Andrew at work was like watching a composer bring the various components of an orchestra together to get a great harmony going! Andrew is a rock of sense but with an ability to be objective and creative in his approach. He doesn’t tell people what to do, rather guides them in the right direction”
