a rich combination of wisdom, analytical skills and forward thinking abilities
“I have rarely come across someone with such a rich combination of wisdom, analytical skills and forward thinking abilities, I cherish the interactions, support, help and insights as they help me to become a better version of myself. Having written 3 books, conducted 100’s of interviews, trained 1000’s of people and consulted to many more all based around human behaviour it is not often you find a dyed in the wool innovator who you want to spend time with over and over. Great person, I encourage anyone to have a conversation with him.”

knowledgeable, insightful, interesting and INTERESTED
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.

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.

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.

Andrew Vorster was a fantastic speaker & moderator at Legal Techfest recently in Sydney. I would strongly urge you to take the time to listen to him and his idea’s and you just might come away with a “gem”
a first class communicator
Andrew is a first class communicator who has delivered superb content valued by our clients in strategy and innovation.
Andrew has the ability to communicate complex subjects by captivating his audience through exceptional story telling.
His presentation was energetic, insightful and infectious
Andrew was asked to deliver an “innovation ignition” talk to a large audience of our business subject matter experts. Before doing so he ensured that he was equipped with an understanding of our business and the challenges faced. His presentation was energetic, insightful and infectious. He cleverly explored a range of relevant innovative technologies which both broadened and challenged our thinking.
not afraid to give his opinion
Andrew is without doubt one of the first people on my list when I look to start my research on current trends in the fintech industry. He has an extensive knowledge base and is not afraid to give his opinion. Added to this, in 10 years of producing conferences and expos he is in the top 2 or 3 moderators I have ever worked with. His enthusiasm and energy are mixed with an incredibly articulate nature, when looking for the right question at the right time. He also does an unprecedented amount of preparation to make sure each session he is involved in is a success. I have no doubt the recent FinTech Connect event would have been a much lesser conference without his involvement.
