“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."

Jon Loveday, Head of Commercial Operations, Thames Water.
