He has also trained state, federal and international police, including undercover officers, surveillance operatives, informant handlers, intel analysts and senior managers of serious crime – working with police from 40 countries training them in such skills as infiltrating groups, establishing rapport, building trust, recognising deception and communicating for influence.

Andrew is the author of four books, including BullShift – Get more honesty and straight talk at work. His hilarious, interactive keynote presentations on BullShift push the audience, in a good way, towards more honesty, towards greater maturity, to passion, balance, power and excellence.

He is extremely professional, engaging and funny with a relaxed style that appeals to all audiences, yet with the ability to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently at all times. He can read a room better than most people.

As a presentation skills expert, he has trained senior managers, directors, sales people, lawyers, detectives and teachers in the attitudes, knowledge and skills of giving effective presentations and as a facilitator, Andrew has led forums, planning sessions and hypotheticals for community groups, Government agencies, businesses and educational institutions.

Andrew has also worked with five of Australia’s state orchestras and with 60,000 students, parents and staff in 110 schools on in leadership, teamwork, conflict resolution, stress management and building relationships.

As a singer/songwriter, Andrew has won state and national songwriting awards and wrote, directed and produced a sold-out musical called What a Man’s Gotta Do. He has also played two seasons of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and in 2012 Andrew took his hilarious one-man musical comedy show on a tour of 45 towns in five states.

Andrew Horabin talks about:

BullShift: Get More Honesty and Straight Talk at Work – The inability to talk straight and be open costs us time, energy, money and morale. How much more effective could we be if our team members, customers, managers and suppliers were all able to be open with each other and talk straight? This hilarious, interactive session explains some practical things we can do to shift the bull.

When teams practice the principles of BullShift, they report: more efficient meetings, quicker negotiations, more honest and useful performance appraisals, greater enthusiasm, better ability to accurately analyse problems and solve them, and so on.
