Andrew's presentation was relevant to the audience, introduced some real gems of knowledge and encouraged alternate ways of thinking. He made the effort to connect individually with each person who attended the event, both before and after his presentation. He followed up with individuals who requested additional information and contact from him, even providing his entire presentation to be shared with all attendees. Andrew spent additional time to enjoy and gain understanding of our remote region prior to the event date at his own expense. This extra effort created a higher level of connection with his audience. We would highly recommend Andrew for any business related event. He is charismatic, down to earth, knowledgeable and an excellent communicator
