Andy, thanks again for making our Balance HK event a huge success. The audience gave you their undivided attention and you could hear a pin drop when you were speaking. I have never witnessed that before, with a room of 170+ people!

Andrew delivered a fantastic, punchy 3-hour session with our Academy for Chief Execs group...really useful. As a result we asked him to deliver some training to our senior managers. By the end every one of them was more relaxed and confident, and had developed some superb techniques for delivering their presentations.

“I was part of the group that was transfixed by your story and please take my silence in the immediate aftermath of your presentation as a genuine moment of reflection on what we humans can achieve, when facing adversity in the most challenging of circumstances. Whether it is up a mountain or in a playground!”

“I asked Alex to come and share his “journey” with my team of senior managers and executives to give a good example of how people overcome numerous obstacles and still come out as winners. His preparation for the presentation was meticulous, and customised to my need, message and audience. His presentation was delivered perfectly –the timing was good, the message was brilliant and the whole team were captivated. The message of overcoming obstacles to come out on top was simply thrilling. The teams feedback was of the highest praise. I have no hesitation in recommending Alex as a speaker”

Alexis both before, during and after his talk was easy to approach and great to talk to. He managed to go way over the agreed 30min which shows how much he enjoys what he does and that transmits to the audience. Everybody was captivated by both his personality and stories and it was a perfect marriage really
