What Andy Lopata's clients say
"From the get go, Andy captured his audience with his engaging personality. The ttle 'Just Ask' felt very personal but looking at my fellow atendees I could see the light bulbs come on in the room as he brought the topic to life. Asking for help, for me, has always felt like a sign of weakness. Andy completely blew this reasoning out of the window. I have kept his flyer in my notepad for easy reference. A thoroughly compelling presentaton that has lef a memorable impression."
"Andy Lopata’s presentaton on vulnerability is immensely powerful. He makes a wonderful case for true openness with others and for putng aside the mask of pride we sometmes wear when we should be more direct especially when we are hurtng. His message deserves wide distributon."
"At Mindset, we had the pleasure of working with Andy Lopata on a series of executve sessions with an internatonal bank. These sessions were designed around the principle of fostering an environment of respect and trust in the workplace, with an emphasis on the free expression of opinions and concerns. Andy brought his expertse and tailored it specifically to the needs of the industry. His insights into leadership and vulnerability were partcularly powerful, encouraging a shif from a traditonal hierarchical approach to a more vulnerable and authentc leadership style. The group dynamics created during the sessions allowed for an open and safe space for discussion, fostering a deeper understanding of concepts such as ego in our interactons and the importance of sharing both successes and challenges. Andy's techniques for building resilience, promotng psychological safety and addressing biases and behaviours were incredibly valuable. In additon, his focus on creatng inclusive workspaces that respect diversity and foster trust has been instrumental in shaping a strong culture within the organisaton."
"Andy delivered an excellent session at a recent leadership event I atended. If you had asked me beforehand whether I enjoy networking, my honest answer would have been no, because I probably viewed it as a tmebound, transactonal thing. Andy really changed my thinking. The key thing I took away was that networking is a longterm, organic thing."
"Andy has successfully been working to support me at Molnlycke over the past few years and in a number of different ways. His enthusiastic and interactve presentaton at our Natonal conference was very much appreciated by all and his series of workshops for my leadership team has been put to significant positve use. Effectve networking is critcal to our organisaton and like many others, resonates strongly within the challenges we face as an industry."
"I first got to know Andy as he gave an eye opening keynote during a kick off held in Barcelona. Following this keynote, I was given an opportunity to join a training that Andy gave on building professional relatonships. The training gave instant results. At the tme I was engaging a global enterprise within my region. Leveraging the techniques learned through Andy, my main contact provided an important referral on the operatonal side. This was a fantastc experience and a solid proof on what wisdom Andy shares. Andy is a thought leader, speaker and fantastc trainer within the field of building professional relatonships."
"Andy's presentation on Professional Relationships was by far the most cogent and useful presentation on the subject I think that I have heard in 30 odd years in the industry. Andy's insights felt like the lightbulb moments when one puts into conscious thought something that has been staring you in the face for some time. I particularly found useful his stakeholder mapping, looking at how people relate to each other, together with understanding the level of influence you have with those individuals."
"We were delighted that Andy contributed to the Rapid Response Team we launched during the Covid19 crisis. He was able to bring fantastc value at short notce to a mixed group of CEOs in a compelling 60 minute ‘Game Changing Conversaton.’ More importantly for me as a client, Andy was highly responsive to mastering the brief and flexing to the highly interactve workshop style we required."
"The sessions were very well structured and gave clear advice on how I can improve my digital sales strategy. I would be happy to recommend your sessions to anyone trying to raise digital exposure through these tools and I look forward to seeing how my changes improve my visibility and outwardfacing profile."
