Leadership Presentation

  – Rich Barton, CMAA – NIAA Associate Executive Director

“Andrew shares a special message with his unique background as an administrator and top-level basketball official. He provides not only inspiration for the work we do in the trenches, but also the needed tools and examples to establish foundational relationships of trust with all stakeholders for the ultimate success of students.”

Leadership Presentation

  – Sammy Vander Wal – Fiscal Manager/Membership Coordinator/Event Planner – NDCEL

“Andrew was great to work with before the event in the preplanning stage. We talked briefly before the event and then the day of was such a treat. Our attendees were impressed with his style, not just a sit and get presentation. They were able to get up, interact with each other and move around the room. I heard attendees express their appreciation for his generosity, and how many things he gave away. Our group doesn’t typically buy speaker’s books and Andrew did not go home with a single copy! We hope to have him back again!”

Leadership Presentation

  – Michele White, CAE – Executive Director of Florida Association of School Administrators

“Andrew is a difference maker for leaders at all levels. His personality, presence, and presentation were the talk of the FASA Conference and at a level that our planning committee holds other speakers to. Through laughter and relatable stories, Andrew draws in the crowd to make positive changes in practice for better student outcomes.”
