Real world results.
New skills that don’t get put to work are like a cheque that never gets cashed. Worthless. So I follow five principles to make the work, work.
Carefully craft experiences
All too often people dread training. They think about the work piling up while they are stuck in a program that moves a little too slow and is disconnected from their current reality. My programs are engaging, informative and highly interactive which pass the ultimate test: people rarely check their devices during the day.
Build behaviour change
We want people to change the way they work. For that to happen you have to move beyond vague intentions or loose commitments that people don’t find compelling. Every program I deliver includes a powerful process for people to build a series of new habits that help them start, and stick with, newly acquired skills.
Serve a bigger picture
The work we do needs to be part of a bigger plan to have any real impact. A change plan, business initiative, team intervention or leadership upgrade. Far too often consultants roll out a pre-fabricated program. I work relationally, not transitionally, and strive to be a strategic partner that builds a better future.
Fight the forgetting curve
Even the best run programs have to fight the forgetting curve. The fact that people forget a lot of what they learn as soon as they walk out of the room. Along with elegant resources that we guarantee won’t be filed and forgotten, participants receive a comprehensive 90-day post program support to encourage progress.
Don’t fight busyness
We are in a world where busy is the new normal. We are constantly overconnected, overcommitted and overwhelmed. So this is our starting point. The tools and techniques we provide have been designed to integrate and improve the way people work everyday. This means, they can invest less effort but have more impact.

What client’s value.
We brought in Andrew to audit the performance of our business and haven’t quite been able to let him go since.

He is an invaluable asset for any business that has a specific result to achieve.
