“We engaged Andy Lopata to conduct a seminar on networking at our offices in Waterloo, Belgium. Andy is an energetic presenter who quickly captured our audience's attention.
The content of his presentation was excellent and fostered lively commentary and questions. The break-outs were especially constructive and everyone enjoyed the six degrees of separation exercise.
Networking is a critical skill for success and Andy offered many helpful tips that were relevant and useful to our pan-European employees. We will definitely have Andy back for another session and are looking for other ways to partner with him.”
Jennifer Rademaker, Mastercard Europe Women’s Leadership Network
"Andy was one of highest rated speakers for 2012. This was critically important as he was the lead-off speaker in our inaugural year of the Russell Women’s Network.
He worked with me to ensure that the message was consistent and genderless (as men were encouraged to attend). It was professionally done and consistently delivered.
I think it speaks miles that Andy was able to get good crowds with a nice balance of men and women at a women’s network event. I personally have used his tips and bits from his speech to expand my network exponentially in the last year, as have my colleagues."
Jill Naas, Director Investments Division. Russell Investments
“Andy is one of my networking gurus - he's my go-to point for any questions or queries relating to networking, networking techniques and networking problems - whether it's face to face networking or online.
He's an engaging and pragmatic speaker and clearly shares his knowledge of networking with an audience and brings them into the conversation - tackling tricky networking issues in a no-nonsense way that is really useful in terms of developing your own networking expertise.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Andy as a speaker and indeed have done many times before and will continue to do so in the future!”
