“Andy’s coaching helped me pinpoint some fundamental and critical factors impacting my programme’s success. Obtaining this clarity, enabled us to explore my own response to those challenges before he then went on to support me to build the energy and enthusiasm to address them head on. The breadth and depth of his business acumen, his intuition for knowing when something is missing, coupled with deep listening skills and genuinely caring about his coachee, all combine to provide a rich and uplifting coaching experience. He challenges with empathy and brings his expertise with humility.”
