The importance of pulling together towards a common goal in the face of adversity really struck a chord with our sales team. Andy’s delivery was powerful, polished and professional. We are all inspired to take our performance to the next level.
Thanks, Andy. Your presentation was excellent; our team are still talking about your key messages.
My team found Andy’s speech was utterly inspirational and extremely informative. I reviewed their “take home” messages from Andy’s session & they certainly recalled all the points he made. Many, many thanks.

“The Glenfiddich Yurt was intended to create an intimate environment where visitors to KMF 2013 could get right up close to some of the UK’s world class mountaineers and adventurers. Although I’m sure Andy is used to standing with a microphone and speaking to much larger corporate audiences on a much larger stage, he really seemed to understand what we were trying to create and seemed very at home, sitting down and telling his story in his relaxed, natural style which really engaged the audience and genuinely helped to bring our idea of ‘stories around the campfire’ to life.”
Jamie Milne, Glenfiddich Ambassador
‘I chose Andy to speak at our first continuous improvement conference as I could see that many of the lessons he had learned through mountaineering, applied equally in the workplace .Andy took time to understand how to align his talk to the key themes of the event and how he could use his experiences to deliver key messages. The talk was very well received , people stating it was inspirational’.

Thank you for delivering such an awe inspiring speech at LACA’s National Conference. Your speech was uplifting, humbling and greatly motivating.
Your story of determination against all the odds, was truly incredible. You are a great example of ‘when the going gets tough, the tough get going’ – the theme of our Conference. Your messages – ‘never give up’. ‘you can achieve the seemingly impossible’ and ‘don’t let adversity stand in the way of your dream’ – were loud and clear!
