Client Comments for Andrew May
Andrew May travels from New South Wales Australia
- Thanks for your great ‘Switched On' keynote at our annual conference. It was our pleasure having you as part of our 'people' day and I thought your speech was fantastic! One of our international guests from London was so impressed with your presentation that he said he's going back this week to let them know what an innovative company we are down here and to speak to International HR about running something similar in UK – all very positive!

- Hi Andrew, I wanted to take a minute to thank you for all of the time and effort you have put into the AXA manager conference program over the last year. Combining the morning wake up activities, masseurs, and the online learning and intranet with your keynote presentations is a perfect way to blend content and practice. The Switched On reviews where you summarise all of our activities and provide us with downloads and photos of the entire experience is always very well received. We are looking forward to running this program with you again next year!
- Feedback from delegates clearly shows your talk was not only well received, but a highlight of the event. Your experience and understanding of sustained performance and its impact on our businesses certainly gives us all plenty to think about in planning ahead.
- Andrew's energetic style always leaves the audience buzzing. We can always count on Andrew to partner with us and deliver a humorous, thought provoking and very practical presentation. He is a master speaker and the perfect choice to stimulate the audience with a fact filled health message. One of the best I've seen!
- From the very start your message was powerful and to the point. I was particularly impressed the way you researched the audience and continually linked the key messages back to our specific business and day to day pressures.
- Andrew recently partnered with Human Resources to develop a specific presentation that outlined the theory behind designing and managing Work Life Balance programs; as well as providing employees with powerful and realistic strategies they could immediately use. This provided a very strong platform for HR to then explain what we are doing on both a global and local initiative. I strongly recommend Andrew May as one of the best in the business I've come across
- Andrew May has now presented to Ernst & Young employees throughout Australia in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra and Perth. His high energy, enthusiasm, subject knowledge and capacity to relate to large numbers of people both professional and non–professional is the reason we contract him again and again. Andrew has an engaging and sense of humour which allows him to draw in and interest his audience. We also belive Andrew is now very aware of our culture and our objectives and he is able to deliver addresses to large or small audiences within an appropriate contextual framework. We have been very satisfied with Andrew's contribution to our health and well–being program and look forward to a long and successful working relationship with him.

- Your session on Tuesday night was great and I have had a heap of positive feedback. 'On when you have to - Off when you can', featured heavily during our conference and I will be really surprised if any of the group don't attempt the on line learning opportunity
- Comments from our staff included...
"Absolutely fabulous", "great motivational speaker, very thought provoking", "fantastic presentation", "great topic - great tools", "awesome" and "more of this at conferences".
