Testimonials for Andrew Coorey
I have been involved in several functions that Andrew has been involved as MC or Interviewer and every one of them has been an outstanding success. The key to these events is preparation which includes copious amounts of research and Andrew is prepared to do that. The questioning and comment is therefore relevant, timely and appropriate and the questions are therefore designed to deliver the right esponse from the interviewee. Andrew is quick witted, which is always handy but more importantly, he gets the respect of the audience to which he works.
I would have no problem recommending Andrew for your event.
Sincerely - Phil Kearns

(He has worked with and for several CEOs of major listed corporations).
