Prestigious organisations like reinsurer Swiss Re and two of the Big 4 consulting firms have engaged Andrew to deliver storytelling sessions for their executives as far afield as Istanbul, Munich, Prague, New York and Chicago.
In most cases companies are looking for ways to communicate their ‘difference’ and demonstrate the added value they deliver. Their employees are highly skilled technicians and deliver an excellent service.
However, according to TEDx speaker and restaurateur Bob Stuckey ‘service’ is what we expect; it’s ‘hospitality’ that really makes a mark, those many and varied ways we make the client feel special, valued, understood and empowered.
Andrew illustrates ‘hospitality’ through stories which in turn inspire his workshop delegates to share related experiences of their own.
Individuals can make great strides through one-to-one coaching sessions with Andrew. This might involve developing their story, their skill in communicating it or some strategies for promoting themselves through public speaking, networking, interviews or social media.
From time to time Andrew hosts public workshops in storytelling and communication skills. These may be based on his Speakeasy concept, where delegates can test-drive a sales pitch on a small audience and receive helpful feedback. Mojo Meetups are occasionally held to encourage business owners and professionals to sell themselves with more confidence and adopt the storytelling approach.
