BOOK ANDREW FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT!
And I’ll deliver just the right mix of listening, laughter and learning
DISRUPTIVE. YOUNG. PROFESSIONAL.
Andrew has spent over a decade of passionate work in health and safety, and a number of other areas of business. A bit loud, very energetic, engaging and restless – Andrew is pushing at the edges of current health and safety and business practice to improve the under-whelming status quo, to look at old problems in new ways and new problems few are looking at. An entrepreneur, resultant, coach, podcaster and speaker – his experience is real and his insights valuable.
His core message – people are the solution, not the problem!
NEED A SPEAKER? HERE’S SOME TOPICS TO CHOOSE FROM:
The Future of Health and Safety
Work health and safety as a concept hasn’t been around for that long, a few decades in any real sense. Yet, like many things in the world around us, the pace of change is increasingly dramatic. Just look around – the way work is organised, the type of work we do, the technology we use, an increasingly connected global market, an increasing middle-class in emerging nations…..
This presentation looks into the crystal ball, and take a futurist’s look at health and safety, to help you think about how you and your team will evolve to continue to be relevant and effective. Hint: There’s no assumption that health and safety will exist in the future….
The most important person in health and safety is....
Do you know who? Front-line supervisors and managers in my humble opinion! Yet these most important people often feel lost, alone and unsupported when it comes to health and safety – little acknowledgement from others of the day-to-day reality, battered and bruised when something goes wrong.
This presentation empowers and encourages these VIP’s (or MIP’s?!) to be effective leaders through great health and safety, irrespective of the industry, the organisation, the law or the market.
A more effective version of health and safety (and you!)
We are mostly stuck. As health and safety professionals, we’re going increasingly crazy – you know, doing the same things but expecting different results. We’ve been trained in the old ways, and we’re mostly surrounded by systems, organisations and law that holds us back from being more effective – even though there is plenty of evidence where the old ways are not effective.
This presentation is about what we have the most control over – ourselves. Take a look into your own professional and personal development, get insights on how other people have broken out of the mould to achieve greater effectiveness.
Marketing health and safety (properly!)
If you had to sell health and safety (that is, charge for everything you do/create/prescribe), would you be very successful?
Health and safety has a marketing problem. And it’s not just limited to tacky billboards/posters, squeezy toys during safety week and water bottles during wellness week. Most health and safety practice in business is still based in a compliance context – we do this because we are legally required to. What a terrible way to sell something.
This presentation looks at health and safety through the marketing lens – testing current approaches, showing you what good marketing actually looks like, and pokes you to ‘sell more’, ‘sell better’.
Safety Secrets for Small Business
Small (and medium) businesses have it tough. Those who survive do it against the odds, and are faced with no end of barriers to getting health and safety right. For most, it seems too hard, too complicated, too expensive. For some who try to improve, it’s often crushed by unreadable legislation, oodles of paperwork, and unrealistic expectations.
And there is plenty of snake oil being sold which (with the best of intentions) perpetuates the myth that health and safety is bad for business.
This session opens the curtains to reveal lesser known secrets about health and safety which will empower and encourage you, the small and medium business owner, to achieve health and safety which is practical, effective and helps you grow your business.

Want a workshop? Whilst Andrew’s presentations are engaging from start to finish, a workshop gives you the potential to achieve exponentially greater learning, participation and outcomes with your people. Andrew has an uncanny ability to take your goal/intent and shape it into an experience which gets the best value from your people and delivers them the most value at the same time.

BRING YOUR EVENT TO LIFE WITH A MASTER OF CEREMONIES OR LIVE INTERVIEW!
If you are running a conference or multi-speaker event, people will firstly remember how they felt at your event, and second what they learned. A Master of Ceremonies is critical to this.
A good MC will keep the event to time, cover housekeeping and introduce speakers with a bio. BORING.
A great MC will prepare for the entire experience, by assisting with planning, engaging with speakers before the event, bringing energy and life to the room, artfully sew together the ideas, themes and topics of the program, and actively contribute to the feeling, and the learning, attendees walk away with. (This is what I do, the great MC stuff)
Andrew is in-demand for premiere events, including the Safety Institute of Australia Conferences, the OHS Leaders Summit USA, the OHS Leaders Summit Australia (having been invited back two years in a row, unheard of!)
Live interview on the other hand is a unique skill. Have you ever been to an event with a ‘panel discussion’, which put you to sleep?
Live interview is different – it’s more like live TV interviews. Andrew Barrett has become known as the ‘Andrew Denton of the safety world’, because of his immense preparation, likeable style and focussed but relaxed interview technique. Live interview suits a 1:1 or 1:many format, and can bring to life any presentation, research, topic, (and even the most dull people).
Get in touch and let’s see how I can make your event a success.
PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT ANDREW
I was highly impressed with his creative thinking processes & ‘outside the square’ approach. He addresses everyday issues with a refreshingly honest and unique approach, and provides the tools to allow people to really make a positive difference in the workplace.
Utterly dynamic! Andrew brought a completely new dimension to our event presenting a punchy, engaging and insightful TEDx-style talk. Taking the audience on a journey of self reflection and how to get the most out of your professional development, he made us laugh and take notes.
As the closing speaker, he artfully summarised the entire event leaving audiences wanting more. He is a must-have speaker or facilitator!Tony
