Andy energizes and informs his audiences

He delivered a high energy and engaging session to our large virtual audience. Andrew adapted to the technology, ensured our branding was strategically placed, and delivered compelling visuals. Our clients were actively engaged, and we ran out of time for all the questions they wanted to ask. His message of “prepare now for the opportunities ahead” was the message of optimism we needed for our attendees.

It was just what we were looking for – an engaging, interesting, and informative presentation to engage our virtual audience. Andrew keeps the presentation moving, uses effective visuals, and provides thoughtful analysis throughout. He’s an outstanding presenter in a virtual environment, and I know he would be more amazing in person. He used the technology to its full-effect with audience engagement, an event-specific background, and effective visuals. As a meeting planner, he was easy to work with and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Andrew for your next event!

Andy’s powerful and entertaining talk resonated with our audience.  And they asked questions until time ran out.  Today, it’s tough to find an objective voice when it comes to the economy and politics, but he’s the one speaker we’d trust to cover these topics anytime.
