What People are Saying about Seeing Andy Speak

Rating Entries

    “As you know, this was the first time we have brought a speaker back to repeat as our Keynote speaker on the topic of Wellness and Nutrition. But based on last year, I know our team would resonate with your presentation, but I was taken off guard by the number of people that came up to you afterward with stories of putting your ideas into action. Many of our team members reported dramatic improvement in their health, attitudes and their motivation to improve themselves, both at work and home.

    Your message and style of delivery resonates on a deep and important level with people. It′s real, timely and addresses something we all experience daily – the need and want to improve ourselves, but often not feeling like we can. You provide reasonable and encouraging ideas and tools that help us bridge the gap between knowing what we should do and doing more of what really counts.”
