Testimonials from Teachers

"Andrew has a natural flare for public speaking and engages all students in his workshops and talks. He creates an atmosphere which is light, but pacey and makes his subject accessible for all levels. Every time he has given a talk, he has a small crowd of students gathered at the end to talk to him further. This is a testament to his ability to inspire and engage with students. He has often spoken to students two years in a row and when they see him for a second time, they are always excited about what he will offer them. He is always very prompt in responding and has gone out of his way to assist me. I whole heartedly recommend Andrew."

– Catriona Rees, Head of PSHE and RSE, The King’s School

– James Carpenter, Senior Deputy, Clayesmore School

"Andrew was fantastic. He called me before attending the date to discuss a focus for the day. He came early to school which allowed us to set up for the presentation.

He was polite to staff and seemed very interested in discussion around the school. The session went perfectly and the students were very engaged."

– Emma Brennan, Teacher of English and Reading Co-ordinator, The Oldham Academy North
