Just wanted to let you know again what a great job you did for us at our just completed retreat. Your content was spot on and set the stage for me perfectly to have what was one of the best of the now 18 retreats I have done here at Guaranty RV Supercenters. The items you covered were referred to repeatedly by the team through the remainder of our time, which is proof that your message resonated with our group. Please feel free to use me as a reference anytime. Thanks again.

I used Andrea as a team building consultant in my company. We were in the midst of serious operational changes that involved outsourcing and work force reduction. Teamwork was an essential part of a successful transformation and I needed help to invigorate my team. Andrea brought exactly what I asked for. She brought us new insights in change management and it was so refreshing to hear her perspective as an experienced outdoor guide. Team work obviously is not a new concept to anyone. However, Andrea’s teaching of how a good team could pull out of seemingly impossible challenges really touched everyone’s core. Afterward my team was able to pull together and achieved an impossible challenge making the company profitable after several years of struggle.

Andrea was dynamic in capturing our students attention and spoke directly to them about a state of mind to survive and thrive in today’s challenging world! Kids thoroughly enjoyed her presentation.

Andrea energized our group in a compelling way. She was engaging and entertaining, but most importantly she made us re-examine our mindset. I highly recommend her!

Central Oregon Association of REALTORS® engaged Andrea to speak to our quarterly Membership meeting, to help REALTORS® learn more about working with various personalities and communication styles during the normal course of their business. The real estate business is unique, in that our members work as competitors, team members and negotiators with a variety of people who are clients, potential clients and others involved in each real estate transaction. Andrea’s teaching style is relaxed, informative, and welcoming to interaction among the audience members and herself. We had many positive comments, and everyone appeared to walk away with new and helpful information, presented in a very easy to understand process. I would highly recommend Andrea as a speaker for other groups.

Andrea was hired to consult for us several times in order to increase efficiency and efficacy of our business processes. She always provided insightful advice and novel ideas to help us become that little bit better. Several of those nuggets have been implemented by us, resulting in a great increase in employed time efficiency especially, which was a big need at the time. We have really appreciated Andrea’s input and eagerness to bring current research to us and suggest ways we might implement it in our realm. She has really helped us keep from doing things the way everyone else might do them and really optimize our time and talents.

Andrea shines among the rare and costly jewels. Spend any time around her and soon you’ll discover that few persons if any compare with her unique character quality and brilliance. She conducts her life well and adds a great sense of humor to all that. Andrea is an awesome motivational speaker.”
