“Andy delivered a master class. He beautifully connected his experience of why the seemingly already successful Radio 1 needed to change to the issues facing a large utility company like Thames Water. The comparisons were frighteningly similar and we are constantly referencing his insights into truly understanding customers, people and demographics as we develop our plans."
