"I can't recommend Andrew highly enough. He is strategic but can get tactical and delivers on point every time. He is solutions orientated but will search for options and alternatives. He is flexible, adaptable and customer focused. He worked with me over a 6 month period filling gaps in my team...my only regret is I can't hire him."
Andy Corrigan, Director of Communications
"I really enjoyed working with Andrew. His deep understanding of internal communication best practice, along with his excellent creative skills, meant that he very quickly became a valuable member of the team. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him..."
Amanda Loy-Ellis, Global Communication Lead, The Enabling Program
“Andrew helped us deliver a short-term project to put a bit of life back into our existing intranet and improve the user experience ahead of a big migration coming up the next year. He helped us understand what content we had, who was creating it, and the needs of our 5000+ users, which was no mean feat. The solution Andrew came up with not only met our immediate objectives but has also helped us prepare for our longer term intranet plans. He improved the look and feel of our intranet (within the confines of our existing platform), shared best practice in intranet design and writing for the web, and designed training to enable our intranet authors to develop and maintain clear and easy to find content.
The result? Increased engagement and a much improved look and feel. We now have more people looking at our intranet than ever before - and looking at more pages on each visit. I’m happy and most importantly - so are my internal stakeholders! What was invaluable was that Andrew not only understands the technical elements of user experience design but is also experienced in internal communications. So he was able to understand how we communicate and why, and what would work for our various stakeholder groups in terms of UX design.
Andrew is friendly and easy to work with, and during his time with us became part of our team. He was always very helpful and would spend the time to explain things clearly to ensure the learning was embedded. He is particularly good at providing a good range of options to consider, from quick fixes to the aspirational; and could adapt the solution to meet the changing needs of our business. He’s great at presenting findings and recommendations to different audiences, and backing up opinions with the metrics to support them.
Andrew really puts in the work and is dedicated to achieving the best possible result and I’d recommend him for any intranet project – large or small.”
