I enjoyed the whole presentation but the items that most appealed to me was the effectiveness of the daily debrief – open and honest conversation to learn lessons and the behavioural commitment not to let what is said during the debrief affect relationships at work. It was a fascinating talk, well received and Andy was able to identify with our theme of Collaboration and Cooperation in a very meaningful way. We felt your style was one of passion, clear concise enlightening and engaging. In summary, an excellent highly informative presentation that was one of the highlights of our Stepping up Campaign. – CROSSRAIL
He was superb. Everyone enjoyed it and he linked it into our team working very well. – Kathryn Wickson, PA to the Director of Property Services
