Testimonials for Andrew Lock OAM

“We were looking for an exceptional speaker for our recent Client Conference. After looking at quite a few speakers, we settled on Andrew Lock. Personally I am very grateful for having Andrew speak at our conference. I was very moved by his presentation, as were the 100 people in the room. Andrew does a great job. He truly makes a difference. Our clients are still talking about every facet that Andrew spoke about – the systems under adversity, leadership at the highest level, culture, risk analysis, to name a few. My advice is to book him now!”

Bruce Campbell, Business Coach, Entrepreneurial Business School


“An incredible, inspiring, exhilarating and motivating presenter. Andrew had a complicated presentation brief but he delivered it perfectly. He was humble and yet inspirational, he was elite and yet convincing. Andrew delivers a very strong message in regards to tackling everyday tasks in addition to the importance of team work and leadership. Andrew’s story and real- life images captivated the audience and added great value to the day. I highly recommend Andrew as a keynote for any event looking to inspire and leave your audience in awe” 

Steve Bennett, Senior Policy Officer, W. A. Department of Sport and Recreation


“I applaud Andrew on his approach and commitment to our Forum. It is rare to find a key note speaker who is willing to commit so much time and energy into getting to know and understand the organisation to whom they are speaker. Andrew did this and subsequently tailored his presentation to the issues, themes and messages that underpinned the whole Forum. Even though Andrew has such a rich tapestry of experience to draw from, it was his ability to weave his story into the business messages of the conference that resulted in the Forum participants, and my clients, to talk about Andrew’s impact for days afterwards. I simply couldn’t have asked for a better speaker to augment the Forum. I would recommend Andrew to facilitators and conferences wholeheartedly.” 

Alan Scott, Principal, Asmosys


“Your address inspired and motivated delegates encouraging each of them to question and challenge their individual approach to project management and how they contribute. The response to your address has been overwhelmingly positive. Your presentation reinforced values of getting things done, working together and having the courage to make a difference. “

Colin Jensen Chief Executive Officer , Brisbane City Council


“You engaged with the 99% women’s audience with uncanny ease! Not what you would naturally expect discussing the extreme sport of high altitude mountaineering. We all went away inspired, motivated and able to make very clear and useful connections between your story and our daily lives.” 

Peter Warner, Only About Children
