“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!”
“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.”
