His passionate delivery was not only engaging to listen to, it made us really stop and think about how we were going about addressing our client’s challenges."

"Both the book and the ‘roadshow’ are captivating. Andrew Grant has star quality and uses it positively. Andrew has worked on leadership and team development around the globe for more than 15 years, but his presentation still yields the bravado of youth, nicely seasoned with the wisdom of a recognized leader in his field. He’s young at heart, and ferociously clever with it."

“I was delighted with the workshop Who Killed Creativity?, which has both quality and depth. The combination of your depth of knowledge, presentation skills, and the delightful game made the experience safe, enlightening, and most important, change-enabling. The experience is both easy and fun. We know that experiential learning has the most likely chance of changing behavior over the long term, and the extended value is in the likelihood of the experience “sticking”. Business, education, and government need to engage the new learnings you offer through your program.”
