Testament

Tim Raffle

"I've worked on the board of two companies with Andrew - he is a driven and successful Sales & Marketing Director, who achieved some excellent results for us in a turbulent market.

He is an experienced entrepreneur who could offer a wealth of experience to small and medium sized companies."

Steve McDermott

"I first met Andrew 15 years ago on one of my workshops - he took to NLP like a duck to water and has worked with some of the best guys out there since.

After he sold his business recently I interviewed him for my 'Business Guru' CD set, www.redworld.biz - he's a lot of fun to work with and a passionate and inspiring coach."

Steve McDermott Motiavational Business Speaker of the year 2003 www.sfb.com

 

Chris Payne

'There are very few people as driven and focused as Andrew. It takes a rare individual to orchestrate a management buyout with his business partner, turn it around, and then sell it only 5 years later.

I've picked his brain on numerous occasions and always been thrilled with the advice he gave me - though it wasn't always what I wanted to hear!"

Chris Payne, Managing Director www.lifetools.com

 

Andrew Richards

"Andrew is retained as a business coach within Cosalt - he works across the company in Marketing, Strategy, Business Development and supporting senior staff up to and including myself. Whilst he does not know our market in depth his challenging and direct style, coupled to his strong entrepreneurial background, have really helped us make changes and continue to move the business forward.

I would happily recommend his services to anyone considering a non-exec or business coach."

Andrew Richards - CEO, Cosalt Performance Workwear PLC
