Andy's Government Keynote/Training Programs

Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters creatively uses the magical imagery of Hollywood to help Public Sector 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 PradaThe Iron LadyApollo 13—and even Office Space and Star Wars!  This unique program also cites the latest research from Harvard Business ReviewDeloitte, and Glassdoor.  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 public leaders.

Andy’s flagship keynote program is based on his award-winning book “Kiss Your Customer: 77 Reasons Why Sales & Service Are Just Like Dating & Relationships“.   He takes attendees on a journey through the highs-and-lows world of relationship-building, utilizing the clever irony between business and romance.  Andy proves that we must create a transformation from doing a job to creating a bond. We must embrace personalization and customization in this age of technology and standardization.

He also shares examples from Fortune 500 companies to government offices on how to make amazing connections, “WOW” both internal customers and residents, and implement memorable strategies to overcome that one dangerously dissatisfied customer.  Andy’s creative approaches to proven principles can improve customer loyalty immediately, while also leaving a mark on our personal lives.  Enjoy this entertaining, inspirational, and impactful program!

Tired of the same old time management and work-life balance messages?  Dread no more.  International Author/Speaker Andy Masters shares his humorous but thought-provoking spin on proven principles by presenting through his unique “What not to do” theme.  Principles include over-commit to everyone, “multi-task-to-the-max”, don’t delegate, procrastinate, eat poorly, and don’t sleep.  Andy helps audiences across the country become “MASTERS” of prioritization, time delegation, and work/life balance—allowing you to control your schedule, and not allowing your schedule to control you.

He also illustrates the life-changing “YES/NO” principle to inspire audiences to focus the most quality time possible on the activities which are most rewarding for YOU! Andy’s positive and entertaining program provides specific tools you can apply immediately so you can get MORE done, in LESS time, with HIGHER quality, and LESS stress in your career and your life.  Recharge and refocus NOW….before it’s too late!

This shocking program uncovers the nearly $1 Billion dollar fake “synthetic” urine industry, and it’s damaging impact on every organization during our tragic U.S. opioid crisis.  Research proves the staggering time and cost impact from workplace drug usage on employee productivity, and precedent has now been set for legal liability against the vast majority of U.S. organizations which have not effectively screened employees and candidates.  

Most importantly, this program outlines the simple, yet critical action steps organizations must implement to stop the cheating immediately–in order to hire qualified applicants, improve employee productivity, improve workplace safety, and lessen the dangerous legal liability for their organization.  The impact of this program may not only save entire organizations from legal crises, but can also help prevent yet another drug-related workforce tragedy in our country.

This powerful program is for all Association, Chapter, Board, Committee, and Chamber leaders who lead volunteers!  Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters EMPOWERS Leaders to EMPOWER their Boards–in this challenging era of having to “Do More With Less”–and truly helps overcome the non-profit death cycle of “80% of the work is done by 20% of the people”.  This is why NEW ideas, GREAT successes, and record years never happen–as most leaders assume all tasks with moderate-at-best results, while “running themselves into the ground”.

  • Recruit future leaders and Engage new participation.
  • Empower individuals for their talents to shine.
  • Inspire to have the BEST year EVER as an organization.
  • Appreciate every step a volunteer contributes.
  • Reward and celebrate every success.

Powerful leadership principles are based on Andy’s latest book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire”–but this program also includes actual license-protected movie scenes from films such as Star Wars, Apollo 13, X-Men, The Iron Lady—and even Frozen and Office Space! Andy’s program provides attendees with not only an interactive multi-media experience, but also with immediate “take-home” action items to help empower leaders to empower their Boards, and ignite the best association year EVER!

His ‘Leadership Lessons From Hollywood’ keynote was ENTERTAINING, INFORMATIVE, and THOUGHT-PROVOKING. The use of movie clips highlighted his message and had the audience laughing and learning. He challenged us to be better leaders and to invest in ourselves and our employees. Andy’s high-energy style engaged the audience from the get-go and set the tone for the entire event.
