“Andrew Horabin’s Bullshift program hit the mark for my leadership team. Andrew skilfully and professionally challenged each team member to reflect on their behaviour through material that was both thought provoking and confrontational. His incredible humour ensured that participants were able to laugh at behaviours without losing the message, nor the motivation to change. People are talking about it positively and changing their behaviour accordingly. I would highly recommend Andrew to teams looking for a refreshing approach to reviewing behaviour and communication impacts.”
