Inspiring Others Changing Lives
Andy has considerable experience giving inspiring talks to children and young adults about the benefits of sport and the hard work he has had to put in to achieve his goals. He has spoken to all ages of children from primary school level up to university.
Andy helped in making an impact to young people’s lives and raising aspirations whilst working on the Sporting Champions programme, and is now looking to inspire your audience by sharing his secret of what it takes to be the best you can be!
"It was a great opportunity and experience for the competitors to be able to meet Andy who had once sat in the same position as they were on that day. He was able to offer advice, guidance, reassurance to achieving individual dreams. Keeping strong and positive, but emphasising the hard work and determination involved." Alex Bond, Active Norfolk
