Testimonials for Drew Ambrose

We were thrilled to have Drew Ambrose join us as a guest speaker and moderator at the 2022 Australian Photography Awards. During a live event which was attended both in person and live-streamed, Drew engaged in an energetic and insightful conversation with two finalists from our documentary category. From the dialogue, it was clear Drew had prepared himself throughly. I felt his guidance brought out the best in the other speakers. Drew finds a fantastic balance between being personable, insightful and professional. I’d highly recommend Drew Ambrose for any speaking events.

I have had the pleasure of inviting Drew to speak to my journalism students multiple times, and I can confidently say he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the privilege of inviting. One thing that always struck me is his amazing level of preparation and generosity. I have also attended events where I was the audience, and this allowed me to hear Drew's ability to connect with his audience, built through his years of journalistic experience but also his natural flair for communicating clearly and intelligently. If you have the opportunity to work with him, I would strongly encourage you to do so!
