Andrew brought an exceedingly professional and entertaining style to his role as MC at our Aged Care Assessment Program conference. We were delighted with his ability to engage the audience from the beginning and then sustain such a high level of positive energy throughout the whole conference. Both conference delegates and presenters have commended Andrew on the wonderful rapport he developed with his audience – a rapport that generated an extremely interactive and fun response.– Department of Health and Aging
Andrew, your presentation ‘How To Awe Them Not Bore Them’ was just fantastic. You kept me engaged throughout your entire delivery which was very interesting and highly interactive. The points you touched on regarding public speaking were 100% spot on. I have to say your presentation was the best I have witnessed. You were very ‘natural’ and ‘real’ – where others try to make it like a formal presentation you made it look like you were talking to a group of friends and we were absorbing every minute of it.– Westpac Banking Corporation
Within seconds of commencing you turned a room of 150 semi-sceptics into enthusiastic participants. Your energy & enthusiasm, not to mention fun activities won them over and set our conference off to a great start. People immediately relaxed and the ‘Oh no not another conference’ feeling was immediately dissipated. Your humour and ability to engage the team made the conference one of the best ever held by us.– Telstra
