Andrew delivers workshops on a variety of skill topics including presentation & public speaking, networking, customer service and blogging. But his most requested programme is the use of storytelling as an influencing skill.
Andrew has delivered several workshops for this global reinsurer in Europe and the USA. Storytelling has proved a powerful tool for differentiating their brand and helping employees build stronger relationships with clients. Stories help to capture the added value provided by experts who solve complex problems. The Learning & Development lead has reported a “vibe within the organisation” as a result of Andrew’s sessions.
BIG 4 FIRM
Andrew coaches experienced executives within the European Academy of this Big 4 consulting firm. Although storytelling has formed part of previous courses on Presenting & Public Speaking, the client wanted more specialist guidance on the use of storytelling as an influencing skill. This approach allows technically trained experts to persuade and educate in a ‘non-salesy’ way, something appreciated by all sides! Using an interactive workshop format, Andrew also emphasis the importance of story-listening – encouraging the other party to share their side of the story and create more connection.
