Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters creatively uses the magical imagery of Hollywood to help leaders in education DEVELOP and EMPOWER—in this challenging era of having to “Do More With Less”. That’s right, ENTERTAIN and INSPIRE your administrators, deans, managers, and supervisors with actual license-protected scenes from movies such as The Devil Wears Prada, Apollo 13The Iron Lady—and even Office Space and Star Wars!   This unique program also cites the latest research from Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, and Glassdoor to provoke REAL organizational change from every attendee.  Powerful leadership principles are based on Andy’s latest book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire.” Andy’s program provides attendees with not only a memorable interactive multi-media experience, but also with immediate “take-home” value to help develop and empower future leaders in today’s challenging educational environment.

Andy's 2018 goal is simple:  Bring "World Class Customer Service" to as many college campuses as possible!  With widespread budget cuts and drops in state funding, colleges across the country are more dependent than ever on tuition revenue and increased enrollment for survival. Therefore, it's never been more important for the student (the customer) to enjoy their campus experience so they return the following semester, and tell other students (other customers) about their experience. This important program is based on Andy's award-winning book "Kiss Your Customer", and illustrates how to apply proven customer service principles at all levels of staff, faculty, and administration--without sacrificing academic integrity.  Importantly, concepts include all "internal" and "external" customers which every department on campus serves. Andy also shares success stories from colleges across the country who have embraced this "student as customer" philosophy, decreasing customer frustration and dissatisfaction, while enhancing a positive "word-of-mouth" reputation within the community.  In this era of social media, texting, and college online review sites--customer service has NEVER been more important in the history of higher education.



Never before have education professionals been asked to wear so many hats, and do more with less. However, tired of the same old time management and work-life balance messages?  Dread no more! International Author/Speaker Andy Masters shares his humorous but thought-provoking spin on proven principles by presenting through his unique "What not to do" theme.  Andy has also been featured on "The Balancing Act" on LIFETIME TelevisionLeadership Excellence magazine, and Investor's Business Daily.  Program principles include over-commit to everyone, "multi-task-to-the-max", don't delegate, procrastinate, eat poorly, and don't sleep.  Andy also illustrates the life-changing "YES/NO" principle to inspire audiences to focus the most quality time possible on the activities which are most rewarding for YOU!  Enjoy this entertaining and impactful program which help refocus our priorities on what's most important in work and in life....before it's too late!

This eye-opening, must-see program for all educational leaders is based on the latest book from award-winning author Andy Masters, titled "Things LEADERS Say".  Most of us are aware of the positives from delegating—we’ve heard them before. Further, the results of not delegating include burnout, stress, and getting overwhelmed with tasks which distract us from our priorities. Yet, why is delegation one of the most underutilized skills in organizations today? Join Andy as he shares powerful tools to develop and empower your staff, so you can focus maximum time and effort on your most important responsibilities--while instilling confidence and pride throughout your organization.  Andy also shares the direct "ROI" from creating a culture of developing and delegating, and how most organizations lose big dollars annually from an ineffective use of its human resources.  Lastly, education must face and overcome the impending succession planning crisis of baby boomers leaving the workforce by developing & empowering millennials and all future leaders NOW.
