A month has already passed and no certificate was issued on my behalf, so I could not count on it to present it as at least as a prove of my attendance. The activity was held in a place that was almost inaccessible, the building was under reparation, and the personnel there did not know about the location for the course. There was neither warning about this situation on the website, nor in the place to redirect the attendees to the place of interest.

Andrew was a great instructor and has a gift of teaching with applications and exercises during the class that were interactive, fun, and practical. He was able to explain the relevancy of storytelling across many presentation types and explain how it works across different communication forms. Super informative, thanks Andrew!

I learned more from this single-session class than I ever did during 8/10 session-classes. It was wonderful! Even though it was on a Monday night, Andrew was energetic and motivating. He moved quickly through the information and was a natural and engaging public speaker. He had video examples that he shared with the class that were very helpful—it was great to see the materials actually being used in practice. The class size was smallish (enough to fit around a conference room table), and he divided the class time into instruction and fast-paced storytelling/pitching with partners. I very much plan on taking more of Andrew's classes in the future.

This was a really eye opening class, realized that there’s more in any conversation than just the talk. The instructor will walk you through step by step with exercises to put in practice the theory. Definitely worth it, specially for business and life.

Great class- gave me a new perspective for creating elevator pitches. I’ve taken pitch classes before and the heavy emphasis on storytelling was a welcomed lesson. Instructor was animated (overly so but he said he was highly caffeinated) which for the most part was fine but a bit jarring at times. Finally, I loved the one on one work- though it would have been easier if we were instructed to use the same narrative/story throughout the night. Ie first prompt was “tell a story of ...”, the next prompt “ok now tell another story where...” which caused some confusion. Overall I would recommend

In the limited amount of time we had, Andrew conveyed a bunch of really useful information that will help me control my public speaking fears in the future. He also took the time to talk with me for a while after the class on the phone to answer any follow-up questions or concerns I had, which really helped the information stick.

This course was extremely helpful and worthwhile. During the course, I was provided with a deeper understanding of being aware of my body, mind and soul when conversing. More impressive, were the strategies and techniques Andrew shared to support me with easing tension when having conversations. Andrew is incredibly insightful and the course was quite engaging. The manner in which he presented the material followed with multiple opportunities for application allowed for me to be fully immersed in learning the entire three hours! Finally, Andrew’s passion and professionalism was evident from the moment I registered. He ensured that we received an detailed email with specific information about the course and location and after the course followed up with a phone conference. During our post-course conversation he provided personalized tips to further support my needs and clarify any misconceptions I had!

Andrew's class taught me so much. Listening to him break down all the different aspects of what makes for a good interview was extremely insightful for me. The importance of telling a good story and having a meaningful conversation were just a few pieces which I really enjoyed hearing more about. Going into this class I was always internally intimidated during interviews, overthinking things I said, not being able to verbalize my thoughts, it was tough. Andrew really helped my self awareness when it comes to interviewing, he was able to get through to me on a personal level and I am grateful for how much he was able to help me. I highly recommend taking this class! ~ Sam

During his class, Andrew shares a lot of useful tips and tricks on storytelling, he also helps to create a great framework to manage a conversation successfully. As a result - I passed the interview successfully. I recommend this class to everyone looking for a job or looking to improve their skills in having a conversation.

Andrew made the class very interactive and gave us plenty of opportunity to practice the lessons we covered. Incorporating storytelling in your interview narratives was a new way to look at the often nerve wracking interview process but it made me feel more confident about how to prep for my interviews going forward. Would definitely recommend this workshop to others.

Andrew was excellent. When I entered the class I had an overwhelmingly broad view of companies that I would prefer to work for. Once the class was finished I felt confident that I could narrow the search based on a better understanding of my core values. Each moment of the class was carefully designed to improve my interviewing skills as well as give me a better idea of my overall objective. Not one minute was wasted which was excellent because he also gave great tips and insights on how to be attentive as possible. Really feel like digested a ton of relevant information in a 2.5 hour class. Not only that but I did a better job in explaining myself than I have every done before from a career standpoint. I was nervous coming into the class not having an idea of what to expect but Andrew was able to help me remain calm much like I will have to do in my upcoming interview. In those two short hours I feel at least twice as confident about the interview process as I did going in. I would recommend this class to anyone that is considering interviewing to those that are in the final stages of their interview process.

Andrew is the real deal! It is so refreshing finding someone who is passionate about teaching. He kept the class engaged, informed and active so that we would be able to use what we have learned in a more practical setting. I walked away from this class with more confidence and an awareness for speaking in business meetings. Understanding the power of a story and how to use it to navigate the business world has been a huge help!

I wasn't sure what to expect from the class but am SO glad that I went! Andrew is really passionate and talented. The class made me think about how I present myself in conversations - both professional and social - and find ways to be more present, engaged and engaging in conversations. Really interesting and fun, highly recommend!

Great teacher, very positive and inviting. Appreciated that he gave helpful feedback - never in a critical manner - but backed it up in how it's more natural for the human body in terms of posture. It runs a bit long so expect to stay late if you can. Would recommend!

Great structure, loved the content. I think it needs to be 3 hours as you cover a lot of content and excercises in a short time. Andrew also offers free consultation (15 min) after the class to get a personal touch which is a great benefit.

This class was great! Andrew was extremely helpful - sharing insights, thoughts he has developed about the interview process, sharing personal stories, and answering my many questions. I feel the framework he shares will help me tremendously to prepare my next interviews. The class alternates between explanations and tips to help prepare interviews and act during interviews, and practice exercices. I definitely strongly recommend it!

Our Instructor was great! The class was a bit different than I expected (in a good way!). For some reason I thought we would have to prepare a speech and then present it to the whole class, but there were a lot of interactive exercises. The class ran a little long, but I could tell that the Instructor didn't mind, you can really tell that he cares about teaching people and that he just wants people to improve. I'm looking forward to taking more of his classes and can't wait to practice what I learned in his class.

I felt as if the instructor didn't fully take into consideration how uncomfortable some of us might have been being in this setting/how difficult public speaking is for us even in this small setting, and some of his remarks came off a little abrupt and harsh. I came in with a very open mind but left feeling discouraged. I felt as if the course focused a lot on body and posture and maybe not enough on specific skills and practice.

Andrew is an engaging presented who really helps the class understand the basic, yet oft-overlooked elements of storytelling.

Andrew's class is a great introductory class for anyone who has anxiety with public speaking. He addressed some of the root physical reactions we all have and taught us how to channel them in a positive way. And he doesn't just teach about public speaking, he has you practice it right then and there. The tools I learned have really helped in my speaking engagements and I will always use them. If you want to get over your anxiety in public speaking, this class is a fantastic first step!

We brought our fears or anxiety’s about speaking to the table, and worked to implement positive change Andrew did a fantastic job of keeping the group overall engaged in the workshop

The class was fun, engaging, and thoughtful. I was shocked by the amount I was able to learn in such a short amount of time, and the tremendous amount of growth I felt once the class was over. I walked out feeling confident and armed with a new set of easily applicable skills that were tailored to my specific storytelling needs. I also liked that the class was small and intimate - felt like a personal coaching session at times which was great.

Andrew's class was fun and insightful. Andrew has a way of connecting with students because of his easy-going and approachable personality. His teachings and strategies were helpful and based on actual studies of human behavior. Andrew also helped me after the class with interviews and talking about my story. He gave me pointers that he learned from years of working with people. He told me it's all about the experience that you give people. And he helped me how to relate that experience in a way people find enthralling and interesting.

Andrew was very energetic and direct with feedback. I enjoyed the progression of the class for the build up to making a speech to the audience at the end. I mostly enjoyed the breathing and meditative-like exercises. These helped me to become more calm, forgiving of my self-judgments in the moment and more present. Thank you Andrew

There was a lot that was covered in this short class. The instructor was very well spoken, well educated, and intelligent. I would recommend this class to anyone looking for help with organizing and delivering a speech. A couple of things that could enhance the class experience would be to utilize video clips that were shorter and more relatable to a wider audience and to have a little more of a relaxed atmosphere.
