Who is Andrew?
Pitching Skills & Presentation Skills Speaker / Trainer
A former corporate lawyer, Andrew quit the law in the late 90’s before starting up his own business as a corporate trainer and speaker.
As an MC, Andrew brings his casual yet corporate style to proceedings and is well-known on the conference circuit for his revealing speaker introductions, his improvisational skills and ability to adapt to different audiences.
Andrew also runs educational & interactive keynotes and workshops on Presentation Skills and Pitching Skills.
His clients include BT Financial Group, ANZ, Sanofi Healthcare, QBE, MLC, Aon, McDonalds, KPMG, NSW Health, Hesta, Suncorp, PoolWerx, Sigma, CPA Australia….…………..and his mother-in-law’s bridge club.
Andrew’s hobbies include coaching basketball, shaving his head, eating hot chips, watching ‘Survivor’, walking his dog Pebbles and trying to convince his wife and 3 kids that he has a real job.
Andrew is one of Australia’s most in-demand Professional MCs.
Andrew has brought his casual yet corporate MC style to countless conferences and events over the past 20 years, engaging audiences across Australia, the Asia Pacific region, South Africa and the USA.
Andrew thoroughly researches each client, tailors his material accordingly and writes his own script notes, yet is well known for his quick wit and ability to think on his feet.
He has also become well known for his ability to involve the audience in proceedings, adapt to vastly different audiences and for his improvisational skills.
His unique, intricately researched speaker introductions, his lively conference openings as well as his final night conference summaries transform a potentially dry conference room into an environment where laughter and learning blend seamlessly.
Andrew is not a comedian, although he uses appropriate humour constantly. Rather, he is a specialist Professional MC, so he knows how to make a conference Agenda run smoothly and ensure the conference messages are delivered effectively.
The comments from his impressive list of clients (see testimonials) are testament to his prior planning and unique style of delivery.
Andrew brings a new creativity to your event, creating an atmosphere where learning is easier… as people learn more when they have been having fun… resulting in people gaining better value for their conference dollar.

In Melbourne last month for a speaking job, I was woken at 3am in my hotel room by the ‘woop woop’ sound of a fire alarm. Thinking as you do that the alarm was a false alarm, I turned over and tried to go back to sleep. However, the alarm continued and quickly morphed...
As a Presentation & Pitching Skills speaker and trainer, one of my simple client messages is always try and be a little different. Not ‘gimmicky’ different, just do the little things a little differently to your competitors, so your pitch or presentation stands...
