"Presentations like yours come around perhaps once or twice in a career...The highest compliment a group can offer a speaker is the collective decision to invite that speaker back to speak to their management teams... on their dime. When it happens, we know we have touched a nerved in the CEO community as a whole. In our case, we decided immediately after your presentation to invite you to return. Your work has the potential to be transformational."

Dennis J. Ellmaurer
Chairman, The Executive Committee

"I am just getting back to my desk now and I wanted to say that you did such a wonderful job and I am thankful that I was lucky enough to have called you... Everyone was raving about both of your sessions. You are a fabulous speaker and I hope you will not mind if I call you again for future sessions. We owe you a big thank you for making it a great meeting. I am not sure who referred you to me, but whoever that was I am grateful for as well."

"On behalf of the Society of Actuaries, we extend a sincere thank you for your contribution to the Health Meeting. We appreciate the time and effort you put into this program to make it a successful educational experience for the participants. It is volunteers like you who help actuaries, and the actuarial profession, continue to grow in new and important directions. We appreciate you giving so freely of your time and talents."

"Because Andrew is so progressive and provocative, his talks always create an epiphany or an 'aha' moment. He may introduce a concept that seems counter-intuitive at first, and as he supports and justifies his thoughts, I find myself thinking: 'Wow…I never thought of it that way.' That makes his talks especially stimulating – there’s never a single person thinking, 'Yeah – I already knew that.' People leave Andrew’s talks energized, sharing what they’ve learned, feeling smarter than when they arrived, and hungry for more.”

"The stand out speaker at our conference this year was, by far and away, Andrew Sykes. In fact I can quite honestly attest to never having been as impressed with any other speaker at any conference, ever…Andrew’s understanding of the topic at hand was never questionable as his research and publication reputation preceded him…Andrew is a charming and accomplished orator who is extremely well practiced in the art of understanding his audience and matching his presentation and content accordingly. He has the ability to stretch the attention span of despondent delegates and is able to close the most nested of loops with admirable elegance and simplicity. Andrew has that rare talent of ensconcing any group, large or small, and pulling them into his presentation in a manner that ignores uncomfortable seats and passing time. Seminars, Conferences, Public Speaking, Presentations and Andrew Sykes – these should, by all rights, be synonymous."
