Andy's Education Keynote/TRAINING Programs
Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters creatively uses the magical imagery of Hollywood to help Education leaders DEVELOP and EMPOWER their organizations—while defeating the succession planning crisis–in this challenging era of having to “Do More With Less”. That’s right, LEARN and be ENTERTAINED from actual license-protected scenes from movies such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Iron Lady, Apollo 13 — and even Office Space and Star Wars!

Powerful leadership principles are based on Andy’s latest book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire.” Andy’s interactive program provides attendees with not only a memorable multi-media experience, but also with immediate “take-home” value to help develop both millennials and Gen Z future leaders in today’s new economy.
Andy’s 2020 goal is simple: Bring “World Class Customer Service” to as many college campuses as possible! With widespread budget cuts and drops in state funding, colleges across the country are more dependent than ever on tuition revenue and increased enrollment for survival. Therefore, it’s never been more important for the student (the customer) to enjoy their campus experience so they return the following semester, and tell other students (other customers) about their experience.
This important program is based on Andy’s award-winning book “Kiss Your Customer“, and illustrates how to apply proven customer service principles at all levels of staff, faculty, and administration–without sacrificing academic integrity.
Importantly, concepts include all “internal” and “external” customers which every department on campus serves. Andy also shares success stories from colleges across the country who have embraced this “student as customer” philosophy, decreasing customer frustration and dissatisfaction, while enhancing a positive “word-of-mouth” reputation within the community.
In this era of social media, texting, and college online review sites–customer service has NEVER been more important in the history of higher education.
