"Both workplace and home situations can benefit from the sound advice of Andrea’s wealth of experience mixed with her sense of humour, both of which shine through. Thank-you for raising my awareness, answering my questions and helping me support my wife in her journey through this emotional minefield when she has felt lost and overwhelmed."

"Andrea has the ability to help people get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Her delivery is high energy and high impact and the feedback from our people has been very positive. I'd highly recommend her."

Excellent conference tackling strategies to improve attendance. Speakers were engaging and offered practical suggestions to implement. Another excellent day with NSMTC. I would highly recommend.
