A Few of Andy's Testimonials

(Please refer to Testimonials page for complete listing)

"Andy Masters' keynote captured the audience with his energy, his approachability, and his candor. Participants were engaged in every second of his high energy, focused message. The audience left motivated by Andy’s message regarding the critical importance of student engagement, and techniques to achieve it.  My only wish is that we would have had more time with him!  FABULOUS way to conclude our great Conference." - Becky Musil, Associate Director, National Institute for Staff & Organizational Development (NISOD), after Andy's closing keynote for the 2013 NISOD "International Conference on Teaching & Leadership Excellence", with over 1,000+ faculty/staff/administrator attendees (TX)

"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, South Carolina Department of Education, after Andy's keynote program at the annual Education and Business Summit for over 2,000+ Faculty/Staff attendees (SC)

"Andy is a fantastic presenter who 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)

"I am writing to report that Andy Masters was amazing and exceedingly well-received by our faculty.  You couldn't miss if you were to engage him in your Fall Convocation.  He was funny, current, and very well prepared with a customized presentation based on our stated needs.  If you are unable to utilize his services, please know that you could easily recommend him based on our experience." - Linda Chapman, Director of Academic and Professional Excellence, College of Southern Nevada (NV)

"Andy Masters' presentation was the talk of Salt Lake Community College 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, SLCC, after Andy's keynote program for over 1,000+ faculty and staff sponsored by the "Center for Innovation" (UT)
