What people are saying

thought-provoking insight

Patrick Kelly

Andrew has made a valuable contribution to our business as a speaker and master of ceremonies at our recent retailer convention as well as a trusted advisor in technological advancements. As a guest speaker Andrew had our staff and guests enthralled as he delivered a thought-provoking insight into how rapidly changes in technology could impact our businesses and how we should be preparing ourselves for change. The presentation was extremely well researched and very relevant to our industry. I would recommend Andrew’s services to all business leader who want their companies to be leaders and not followers.

he kept it interesting and entertaining whilst delivering expert advice

Testimonial

Andrew clearly got the audience, some complex concepts were made simple, clear and memorable. As a speaker, having expert knowledge in a subject is prerequisite, but being able to convey that in an easy to understand and useable way is where it becomes hugely valuable to those in the audience. This was translated as we imagined in the session, he kept it interesting and entertaining whilst delivering expert advice and lots of strong takeaways for the audience.

one of the most inspiring and insightful mentors

Becky Downing

Andrew is one of the most inspiring and insightful mentors I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He talks about innovation with such vision and clarity that you feel as though you are talking to someone from the future! He is one of the few people that truly understood and nailed our company’s vision immediately and has been an immense support in helping us realise this. Andrew is one of those rare gems whose support and advice is sincere and given without any kind of agenda other than a genuine enthusiasm for what we are trying to achieve. His vast finance and tech background provides us with invaluable insight into the direction we should be driving our business in. If you ever get the chance to work with Andrew I would highly recommend it….but remember, we found him first 😉

knowledgeable, insightful, interesting and INTERESTED

Hes Phillips

I was more than delighted and impressed with his presentation. He has an enormous amount of energy, passion and enthusiasm, and such an engaging approach in his storytelling and in how he delivers such brilliant insights. Andrew led a separate presentation on Day Two of the conference which was to take place as part of three separate tracks running simultaneously. I didn’t hesitate in my decision to attend his presentation out of the three tracks. And, again, he didn’t disappoint. Andrew is incredibly knowledgeable, insightful, interesting and INTERESTED. It is probably because of that final adjective that his presentations were so engaging. He has a level of passion and energy that you cannot help to be drawn into as a listener.

Combining his work as speaker and evangelist Andrew’s work is always cutting edge and insightful because it comes from the inside.
