 "Andy presented two separate sessions at our recent Western Ontario College Educator Development Program Conference, and both were VERY well-received by the faculty in attendance. 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)
