I found Andrew’s 45 minute lecture quite outstanding. I knew little about his subject beforehand but he held my attention completely and made his subject absolutely compelling. First-class.

Andrew’s knowledge of the world of education is second to none. His opinions and insights are always thought-provoking and sometimes controversial. His ideas never fail to encourage lively debate among delegates.
Tim Gartside,
Head Master, Altrincham GS for Boys

Andrew has a deep and broader understanding of what makes a good school efficient and an efficient school great. Whether in the economics of timetabling and staffing or the mechanics of capital development, whether reforming working practices or restructuring provision, whether raising standards among pupils or staff, whether building a culture of responsibility and self-improvement, or cultivating a community in which individuals are taught to share common, higher goals for the good of society, Andrew has valuable and original insights to offer. From the nuts and bolts to the big picture, there is no better school leader to have on your side.
Charles Dormer,
Headmaster of Immanuel College

Andrew is highly skilled at getting to the heart of the matter quickly and sensitively, whether it be educational, managerial, cultural or financial. Andrew’s abilities to monitor, evaluate and give clear unambiguous messages have been of considerable benefit to the quality of services we provide and to many schools.
Jane Theadom,
Head of Learning, Southend Authority

Excellent: the advice was fantastic and has really motivated me.

I have benefited inestimably from the skills, insights, practices and above all the vision which Andrew articulates. I would recommend Andrew to all those who wish to be challenged, inspired and motivated in their work. He has a sense of education which is clear, effective and which was found to be outstanding by OFSTED on four consecutive occasions.
Simon Everson,
Headmaster, Merchant Taylors’ School, Northwood

Deputy Head; Southsea


I have listened to Andrew speak on several occasions on aspects of post-war Britain ranging from the Profumo Affair to Brexit, to Prime Ministerial enthusiasms and eccentricities. You need no prior knowledge to enjoy his presentations. The depth of his knowledge is impressive and his lively, witty and incisive delivery is superb. He supports his talks with power point visuals and invariably keeps his audiences both engaged and entertained. I recommend him without reservation.

Graham Hoyle

Andrew is a commanding and engaging speaker whom I have heard on many occasions. He speaks with clarity, insight and humour and is able to connect with a range of audiences.
