The event was a success! Drew played a critical role in team building and driving awareness of a new communication style for most of us: humor. It was a pleasure to work with Drew and I highly recommend his training!

The main objective of our event was to bring inspiration and motivation to our employees in really challenging times and thanks to Andrew we started to fulfill this aim right from the beginning.
