We booked Andy Torbet to speak after a formal lunch for a large professional society. His talk was very different, compelling, nerve wracking, but also human and really funny. He had everyone on the edge of their seats one moment and laughing the next. The feedback from absolutely everyone afterwards was terrific.
Thank you for an enthralling, absorbing and most informative talk on your experiences. Your photos and video clips were outstanding, your description - spiced with great humour- was fascinating : this was surely one of our best talks ever, and greatly appreciated by a larger than usual audience.
Andy Torbet was absolutely brilliant and really helped the conference. He was inspiring and so interesting he captured everyone's attention and had some really good strong motivational statements he really got us all thinking.
Andy Torbet has been a long-time and highly-valued contributor to Sport Diver magazine, and when it came time to grow our prestigious annual awards evening into a much-larger, more-formal gala event, Andy was the first on my list to act as host. As with all the work he has conducted in the magazine, on the evening itself he was the consummate professional, engaging with the crowd and keeping the event rolling along nicely. He was such a hit with the audience that I have already lined him up to present the 2016 event in October
