Andy is truly the global master of networking and connectivity. This is evident in his industry relationships and connections as a speaker, and if I ever need an introduction Andy is the one I go to first. His clear, well researched, tried and tested methods give practical tools for audiences to implement immediately for personal, professional and business growth. I recommend Andy for conferences, seminars and workshop sessions where you want your audience educated and able to walk away with a truly powerful toolkit to improve how they network, make professional and commercial connections.

"The audience gave you their undivided attention and you could hear a pin drop when you were speaking. I have never witnessed that before, with a room of 170+ people!"
"Andy's 'It's Who Knows You' seminar was personalised to PayPal and delivered to a very responsive and engaged audience of over 60 delegates. The feedback we received from members was overwhelmingly positive, making it one of the best sessions we had all year. "
"Andy has provided three fantastic talks for us as part of a "Networking" programme he tailored to our needs. He is really engaging and left the audience wanting more which is a rarity when you work in Finance! He is extremely professional and personable and it felt like Andy really knew the topics and had researched the audience. Just thinking about what the next set of talks he can provide will be...!"
"I found the session with Andy really interesting and helpful. It offered a different perspective to development sessions I have been to before and it made me really think about how I was positioning myself at work and what I needed to be doing differently. In particular it made me realise that I had really neglected my networks, both internal and external, since returning from maternity leave and this has prompted me to be much better at getting out and about to see people. It was the first Balance event I've been to and has definitely made me keen to attend more."
"As an expert in business networking Andy brings both a professionalism and real passion to his training in the subject. He has a can do and flexible attitude and is happy to develop and shape the content in line with the clients changing needs. Feedback from participants on Andy's workshops has been consistently very positive. He really does practice what he preaches and as a generous networker he brings added valued to the training he delivers."
