Global company acQuire have purchased over 500 copies and give one to each new team member. Kmart purchased 300 copies for their Store Managers.

Why is this work so popular?
Because BULLSHIFT is not more fluff in the already crowded market of corporate communication skills. It is a simple and powerful set of principles that can be applied now. Most people can immediately see how they can improve and feel inspired to change. The workshop may be hilarious and good fun but the message is confronting and long-lasting.
Clients who’ve engaged keynotes or workshops on BULLSHIFT have included: ASIO, HBF, Metcash, Bankwest, Woodside, BHP Billiton, Department of Finance and Deregulation, Australian Federal Police, Australian Tax Office, Horizon Power, Corruption and Crime Commission, VICPOL, Australian Institute of Building Surveyors, Australian Commercial Lawyers Association, Australian Institute of Company Directors, KPMG, Water Corporation, Apache Energy and the councils of Franklin, Bendigo, Stirling, Gosnells and Roebourne.
Andrew has won state and national songwriting awards and wrote, directed and produced a sold-out musical called WHAT A MAN’S GOTTA DO. He has played two seasons of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and in 2012 took his one-man show on a national tour of 45 towns in five states. He has worked with five of Australia’s state orchestras and with 60,000 students, parents and staff in 110 schools.
