Andy was BRILLIANT, we all agreed that we learned lots and his attitude, demeanour and humour was first class. It’s sometimes not easy dealing with other ‘instructors’ when you are instructing. His subject knowledge was first class (he even knew all about the different ferns, plants and berries on the site!!) and I think that your more corporate private sector people will really warm to him. Yep, 10 out of 10 for Andy, a great guy.
