Andy Hickman

  • The Entertaining Encourager - Combines, humor, magic, mentalism, and an inspirational message that will energize your people.

Andy Hickman, CSP, believes that our future will be based on these two things: "The choices that we make and the commitments that we honor."

Andy Hickman is a Certified Speaking Professional. The CSP designation is the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association. Fewer than 5% of speakers worldwide have earned this prestigious designation.

Qualifications/Features/Benefits:

  • Spoken for most of the Fortune 500 companies in America on the topics of Change, Customer Service, Leadership, Relationship Building, and Sales.
  • Delivered the Keynote Address to the survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing
  • Honed his skills as an illusionist while working with David Copperfield's "Project Magic"
  • Author of two books as well as an audio-book on CD
  • Delivers a unique combination of good clean humor...amazing illusions...and a customized message will make your next meeting a laughter-filled, inspiring, and unforgettable event.
  • Has been a full-time professional speaker since 1990.
  • If your people need to be entertained, educated, excited, encouraged, and inspired, then Andy Hickman is the speaker you want.

 

He doesn't merely talk about "exceeding customer expectations," he models it! He will totally spoil you. He does this by arriving early and staying late for his engagements as his schedule permits. He will play golf, dance, attend your other sessions, and get to know each person that he meets by name. Later, from the platform, he will call each person that he has met by their name...sometimes hundreds of them. This results in a deep connection between him and each member of your audience. Andy believes that only by becoming "rare" can we receive more money for our services. Andy delivers an experience for your people that are indeed "rare."

Before becoming a Professional Speaker, Andy owned and operated three businesses at the same time: a Real Estate Development company that built over 1,000 multifamily residential units in the Dallas/Ft Worth Metroplex...a Property Management company to manage these properties...and a Mortgage company to finance the sales of these properties. At that same time, while working with David Copperfield's "Project Magic", he realized that others could be profoundly moved by the art of magic. Today, Andy is far more than just a speaker/entertainer...he connects with his audiences on a profoundly deep level. After experiencing one of his Keynotes, the audience members are inspired and equipped to grow in the midst of change.

Andy is the author of two books: Stuff That Really Matters - Establishing Priorities for Your Business and Your Life and Humor Me.

Since 1990 it's been Andy's privilege to address thousands of audience members, and perhaps one of his greatest honors was being hired to deliver the Keynote Address to the survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing.

Andy Hickman believes in magic...and after hearing him speak, you will too.

THE MAGIC OF THE FUTURE IS YOU!"

The Magic of the Future is YOU!” combines magical entertainment, audience participation, good clean humor with a powerful motivational message that will inspire each of us to create our future through wise choices made and commitments honored. 

Microsoft

"Our team of Microsoft Customer Support managers and engineers were kept on the edge of their seats in amazement of your magical abilities and your positive words of wisdom and motivation. I continually receive feedback from the participants as to how you opened their eyes to being a 'HERO' for our customers."

Coca-Cola Company

"Your blend of humor and inspiration were just what we needed. Our team has been challenged over the past 18 months and your message helped to 'rejuvenate the spirit.' Your theme about being 'Heroes' for one another was both timely and perfect. The Bonsai Principle will help us manage through the tremendous change we have and are experiencing. Thank you for adding value to our meeting and to my team. You really connected with them!"

Minnesota Life Insurance Company

"Our theme of 'Everyday Heroes' was well suited to you because you, my friend, are truly an Everyday Hero. The preparation you did before speaking with our group puts you in a unique and elite class. You spoke with us by teleconference several times, you interviewed associates by phone, and you arrived nearly 24 hours early so you could meet many of our people face to face. You developed a connection and understanding with them that made your presentation personal and intimate. With our goal of recognizing and rewarding our associates for a great sales year, this personal approach of yours was exactly what we hoped for. You really nailed it, Andy! The spirit of your presentation lives on in our organization. We challenge each other to 'break your pot,' to stretch and not be limited. We treat customers differently. We treat each other better. Thanks to your spark, we are growing more of our own 'Everyday Heroes' and now we recognize them more easily. The work you do is a gift, Andy. I know you know that. Thank you for sharing that gift with all of us. We were, and remain, delighted."
