Our group was BLOWN AWAY by his presentation--the way he engaged the audience, and the relevant content that every HR professional wants to apply in their position right now! His entertaining way of presenting ‘HR Leadership Lessons From Hollywood’ through movie clips was both powerful and fun. I’ve already received TONS of feedback from our members on how much they LOVED it, and how excited they are to implement his lessons from his latest book everyone received - Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire. Thank you again for making the trip to Arizona Andy, you are a MUST SEE!” - Dan Hobaica, SHRM of Greater Phoenix Programs Board Liaison (AZ)

He challenged us to be better leaders and to invest in ourselves and our employees. Andy’s high-energy style engaged the audience from the get-go and set the tone for the entire event.

Since hearing your presentation on work-life balance, I have been able to shift my focus; now I truly feel like I’m not “chasing so many rabbits” at once. I can’t thank you enough for helping me see this!” - Amy Erickson, Director of Professional Development, Rocky Mountain MPI (CO)

EDUCATION

 

"Andy Masters will add energy, content, and PASSION to your professional development event. Andy has the experiences and skills to keynote or conduct breakout sessions, including workshops and seminars. I don't like the 'canned' delivery that tends to be obvious as one listens to some speakers, and we carefully recruit presenters that avoid that trait. You won't get a 'canned' message from Andy Masters. His content is fresh, relevant, and timely in every way imaginable. BOOK HIM for your next event!" - Wofford O'Sullivan, Conference Planner, after Andy's opening keynote for the annual Education and Business Summit with over 2,000+ attendees

"Andy Masters was the closing keynote speaker for the 2014 APC Innovation Summit and his presentation was a WONDERFUL way to end our event on a high note! Our members found him engaging, knowledgeable about our sector, and his presentation was REFRESHING and full of GREAT IDEAS. He was a great addition to our program. Thanks again for providing such a wonderful presentation. I look forward to working with you again in the future!!" Donna Gurnett, Executive Director, Association of Proprietary Colleges, after Andy's closing keynote for the 2014 APC Innovation Summit for College Presidents and Administrators

"Andy presented two separate sessions at our recent Western Ontario College Educator Development Program Conference, and both were VERY well-received. He has a warm, inviting, unassuming manner and was able to make meaningful connections with the faculty and to the work they do. His presentation on Humour was a RIOT and was just what we needed after a long day of sessions!" - Kathy Bouma, Organizational Development & Learning, Fanshawe College, Ontario (Canada)

"Andy is a fantastic presenter and he kept the audience engaged throughout the 3-hour program. Participants used phrases such as “Andy kept me engaged throughout with his knowledge of the topic and his enthusiasm and humor”, “Great seminar – helpful at work and in life”, and “This training should be REQUIRED for every employee!" Andy exceeded our expectations and our staff were motivated and inspired by Andy and his program. You gave a fantastic program and I was inspired by you. Thanks so much!" - Linda Yuhas, Director of Compensation and Employment Services, Grand Valley State University (MI)

"Andy Masters' presentation was the talk of SLCC from the moment he left campus. Amazingly, Andy brought so many ideas and communicated with such energy, humor and passion to the College, that, while everyone in attendance benefitted greatly, it seemed no two people took quite the same lessons away. I personally implemented a couple of ideas taken directly from his session—both in my personal and professional life—the same day. Many others have had similar success putting Andy's ideas into practice. It was a rewarding pleasure to have Andy on our campus." - Dave Jones, Public Relations Specialist, after Andy's keynote program for the "Center for Innovation" in Salt Lake City with over 1,000+ attendees (UT)

TRADE / INDUSTRY ASSOCIATIONS

 

"You won my award, HANDS DOWN, for the best speaker we have ever had!" - Barbara Keathley, Past-President, Missouri Women's Council of Realtors

"We kicked off our Florida Staffing Association with Andy Masters as our Keynote Speaker.  With many tough issues facing our industry he was the PERFECT person to remind us why we do what we do, relationships with our employees and clients!  A few of our members commented: 'Andy was a GREAT START for the Conference', 'REFRESHING with a SENSE OF HUMOR!', and 'Kiss Your Customer was RELEVANT & ENTERTAINING!' Thank you Andy!" -  Shannon Bolan, President, Florida Staffing Association (FSA), after Andy's keynote for the FSA Executive Retreat

His appearance at our Conference was more than just a quick motivational speech - it was an event that will be remembered by all in attendance and a message they will carry forward both personally and professionally!"
- Libby Livings-Eassa, Past-President, Florida Career Pathways Network (FCPN)

 "Andy Masters was an exceptionally engaging and entertaining speaker. After an entire day of sitting through one seminar after another, I was beginning to feel a little lethargic, and then Andy shook me out of it in no time! He was really fun and kept me laughing, even though he was relaying relevant experience and techniques the whole time. In the session I attended, he brilliantly used the universal challenge of courtship and romance to convey solutions for our industry-specific challenge of cultivating a strong and lasting relationship with a new apartment renter. His delivery was well received by all in attendance. I'm sure his other popular topics are presented in an equally thoughtful and entertaining fashion. I highly recommend Andy Masters for your next event." - Carter Wamp, Assistant Manager of Vanderbilt Properties, Greater Nashville Apartment Association education committee

“Andy presented at our 2007 Jaycees National Convention, and he was one of the best speakers we have ever had. His energy, humor, and real-life examples grabbed our audience, while providing specific strategies that our members could apply to improve their chapters and their lives immediately.” - Matt Booth, Chairperson, National Training Task Force, United States Jaycees

“Andy spoke at the first employee meeting we have ever had with all shifts attending simultaneously in the 35 year history of our plant and he made it UNFORGETTABLE. He took the “Everyone Leads” theme we had previously decided on and melded his “Things Leaders Say” presentation into the day seamlessly. Our workforce and executive leadership were highly impressed with his lessons on leadership and humor. Our people are still talking about his “ice cream making story” (go ahead, ask him about it).” – Thom Crosier, PHR - Plant Human Resources Manager, Maxion Wheels, Sedalia, MO

"Andy, your presentation was FIRST CLASS. You have an art of connecting with your audience and engaging them throughout the entire presentation. I remember looking around seeing everyone taking notes and hanging on your every word. That's what a GREAT SPEAKER has the ability to do. Working with you has been a real treat. Not only are you a great guy, but you're a FANTASTIC presenter. I'd recommend you to anyone!" - Kyla M. Clark, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), Brand Strategies & Events, after Andy’s program at the NCAA Convention in Nashville, TN 

“Andy, you connected so well with our Young Business Professionals. You were energetic, motivating and down to earth. The group specially liked your easy to use principles to improve upon their time management skills. You would be a huge asset to ANY group who is looking for an AMAZING, ONE-OF-A-KIND speaker.” - Consuelo Inestrosa, Event Organizer, Young Business Professionals of Boca Raton

“Your presentation at both sessions was EXCELLENT – Entertaining and inspiring. It can be difficult holding the attention of fire chiefs but you engaged them and held their attention for the entire talk; both sessions. I have heard many professional development seminars during my career and they are often dull and repetitive. You used your own life experiences, laced with humor to get across a powerful life message that resonated with our attendees. I look forward to hearing more from you in the future and would certainly recommend you as a speaker to either public or private sector audiences. Thanks again and please stay in touch!” - M. Stuart McElhaney, President, Florida Fire Chiefs Association (FFCA)
