What People Say About Andy’s Keynotes
“You gave us the inspiration and the tools. You are changing the world. What you are doing is making a huge difference. Our people are happier working here as a result. This would not have been possible without your help.”
“When I first heard about working with a consultant, I was concerned. I have come to see your consultants as passionate, talented and patient. I see light bulbs going off everywhere and seeing folks acting and behaving differently.”
“The workshop I attended touched me deeply, like very, very few events have in the past. As a result, I am re-invested in my company. This has the potential to change the organization and the way we do business.”
“Greg brings a unique combination of understanding large organizations and projects, on a technical level, and the more subjective and equally important leadership and organizational elements (the human side.) Greg has excelled in helping companies in their journey to develop a culture of care and concern, and a recognition that all accidents are avoidable.”
“Your work has opened the door to build stronger relationships in our organization that has helped us address issues in quality, in the sequencing of our work, and in the communication of information. The engagement has been more of a Leadership Development Program for us, than a Safety Program.”
“The Humanus program has changed the way I see my job. It’s really about getting people thinking. Andy helped me learn how to connect with my crew.”
