"Andrew has undertaken projects which will improve the performance of several systems that support Australia’s food trade system. This work has been of high quality and challenged some of the affected parties to make overdue improvements to their operating models.
Throughout the time I have known and worked with Andrew he has shown a strong ability to work with Governments, Ministers and the bureaucracy, as well as private firms and organisations. He is known for his integrity and insight, and for his professionalism."
Former Secretary - Commonwealth Government Department
"Watching Andrew invigorate and empower a group of industry enthusiasts was an absolute delight. It takes talent and exceptional skill to achieve the level of engagement needed for meaningful change during a short facilitation session, but Andrew mastered that easily.
Bringing a unique skill set to the room allowed Andrew to connect with people at multiple levels. He helped everyone understand the role of various stakeholders (including themselves) in developing and implementing an industry vision, but most importantly, he allowed them to discover their role.
Everyone walked away feeling like they can make a difference, they had purpose. His approach made his session the groups highlight for the course. Definitely would engage Andrew again for projects and facilitation sessions that build capability and capacity in an organisation or industry."

Andrew provided innovative solutions and options for consideration, whilst being cognisant of the nuanced and complex issues that exist in the agri-political landscape."
