I applaud Andrew on his approach and commitment to our Forum. It is rare to find a key note speaker who is willing to commit so much time and energy into getting to know and understand the organisation to whom they are speaker. Andrew did this and subsequently tailored his presentation to the issues, themes and messages that underpinned the whole Forum. Even though Andrew has such a rich tapestry of experience to draw from, it was his ability to weave his story into the business messages of the conference that resulted in the Forum participants, and my clients, to talk about Andrew’s impact for days afterwards. I simply couldn’t have asked for a better speaker to augment the Forum. I would recommend Andrew to facilitators and conferences wholeheartedly.

Alan Scott, Principal, Asmosys

We were looking for an exceptional speaker for our recent Client Conference. After looking at quite a few speakers, we settled on Andrew Lock. Personally I am very grateful for having Andrew speak at our conference. I was very moved by his presentation, as were the 100 people in the room. Andrew does a great job. He truly makes a difference. Our clients are still talking about every facet that Andrew spoke about – the systems under adversity, leadership at the highest level, culture, risk analysis, to name a few. My advice is to book him now!

Bruce Campbell, Business Coach, Entrepreneurial Business School

An incredible, inspiring, exhilarating and motivating presenter. Andrew had a complicated presentation brief but he delivered it perfectly. He was humble and yet inspirational, he was elite and yet convincing. Andrew delivers a very strong message in regards to tackling everyday tasks in addition to the importance of team work and leadership. Andrew’s story and real- life images captivated the audience and added great value to the day. I highly recommend Andrew as a keynote for any event looking to inspire and leave your audience in awe

Steve Bennett, Senior Policy Officer, W. A. Department of Sport and Recreation

Your address inspired and motivated delegates encouraging each of them to question and challenge their individual approach to project management and how they contribute. The response to your address has been overwhelmingly positive. Your presentation reinforced values of getting things done, working together and having the courage to make a difference.

Coin Jensen Chief Executive Officer, Brisbane City Council

You engaged with the 99% women’s audience with uncanny ease! Not what you would naturally expect discussing the extreme sport of high altitude mountaineering. We all went away inspired, motivated and able to make very clear and useful connections between your story and our daily lives.

Peter Warner, Only About Children

Most importantly thank you so much for your inspirational presentation on Monday. When I looked around the room I could see people shaking their heads with disbelief as you spoke about your conquests. Not to mention on Tuesday morning as all of us here at the Sydney office discussed it all over again.

Thank you Andrew, I look forward to working with you in the future.

Kara Turnbull, Raine & Horne

Andrew presented a compelling and fascinating story, which kept people's interests and captivated their imaginations. The group extracted a lot of learning from the presentation and it set them up to have a very constructive conversation about our biggest issues. Andrew did a great presentation; his use of mixed media meant you got a real sense of the physical environment he was speaking about. We were delighted with his speech and would definitely recommend him to others

Trish Butler, Head of Human Resources, Markets, ANZ

The stories and insights you shared with us captivated the attention of all present and the way you related your experiences back to planning, goal setting, and teamwork, along with a liberal dose of sheer persistence and determination, served as a valuable learning experience for all the Academy attendees.

I would highly recommend your services to any company looking to inspire their team. Your presentation added real value to our Academy and left an impression that will last well beyond the scope of our two day event.

Jim Foran, Van Heusen Academy of Excellence

The management team couldn't stop talking about your presentation today and I'm sure when I get to the office on Monday the staff will be buzzing. Thank you so much for the thought you put into both presentations. They were perfect.

David Thompson, Gazal

Andrew's presentation was both insightful and entertaining. He has the credibility and real life experience that really captured our guests imagination. He also was able to relate the issues of leadership, strategy and team culture on Everest back to Australia's Boardrooms.
