Testimonials from Teachers

I recently watched Andrew's webinar on procrastination through CIMA last week and having watched quite a few webinars through 2020/21, I have to say, it's one of the best I've seen. He is an incredibly skilled presenter and has a presenting style which draws the viewer/listener in effortlessly.

– Mark Francis, Chief Financial Officer, Spotlight Sports Group

Andrew's keynote talk was insightful, inspiring and grounded with a clear and compelling purpose, and he then delivered equally impressive sessions on Growth Mindset. We had high expectations of the day because of the reviews we had heard about Andrew and he met these. He is a real asset to any study skills, motivational or enrichment experience.

– Matthew Pike, Head of Sixth Form, Sir Thomas Fremantle Secondary School

I booked Andrew to deliver a half-day leadership workshop for a group of third sector CEOs, giving them practical strategies to help them make critical business decisions under pressure and do so promptly and with minimal stress. The session received rave reviews, both in terms of the original content, take-aways and delivery style and I recommend Andrew, both as a compelling and engaging public speaker, and as a workshop facilitator.

– Charles McLachlan, Founder, Future Perfect Company

Our short session with Andrew was informative and uplifting. Our team found is refreshing and reassuring that Andrew was able to share some of his own struggles. From conversations with colleagues since, I know that this has given more people the courage to ask for help. We would love to hear more from Andrew and will be inviting him to speak at our next Trust INSET day.

– Sophie Murfin, CEO/ Executive Principle, Wise Owl Trust
