Andy MastersAward Winning Author

“HR LEADERSHIP LESSONS FROM H-O-L-L-Y-W-O-O-D!”

Award-winning author and Leadership expert Andy Masters creatively uses the magical imagery of Hollywood to help HR leaders DEVELOP and EMPOWER their organizations—while defeating succession planning crisis–in this challenging era of having to “Do More With Less”. That’s right, LEARN and be ENTERTAINED from actual license-protected scenes from movies such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Iron Lady, Apollo 13—and even Frozen and Star Wars!  This unique program also cites the latest research from Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, and Glassdoor to provoke REAL organizational change from every attendee.  Powerful leadership principles are based on Andy’s latest book “Things LEADERS Say: A Daily Guide to Help Every Leader Empower & Inspire.” Andy’s interactive program provides attendees with not only a memorable multi-media experience, but also with immediate “take-home” action items to help HR develop millennials and future leaders in today’s new economy.
