TESTIMONIALS

SENIOR LEADERS

"I have kept in touch with Andy Milward since I first met him in 2009 when he ran a three day seminar with our top executives. This was based on his work in goal alignment (self identity, employee engagement) and group efficacy. As a Board member of a large group of companies, I am particularly interested in organizational development, top management motivation and coaching. I have followed the evolution of Andy’s work, and have benefitted from his methods and working skills. A couple of years later we met again at our site, when he ran a seminar introducing us to new methods of strategic business planning that take account of the non-linear dynamics of our business. I am very pleased that, despite the cultural differences and novelty of his approach, our managers appreciate Andy Milward's unique way of interacting with people and have grasped well the evident benefit of his work to the whole organization."

"I did enjoy Andy's organizational advisor role in multiple situations at Microsoft. The key differentiators of Andy'a added value are : 1) state of the art know how transfer with top research universities, innnovative approach in addressing the most complex organizational issues, autometed tools to support his research approach. Last but not least his communication style is always attractive and stimulating interactions."

"I am pleased to recommend Andy for his outstanding help as my executive coach, working with me from April 2009 till January 2010, as I was going through an important transition in my professional career. Andy delivered well beyond my expectations, and I feel I owe him a lot. Andy is a very bright psychologist and at the same time very business-oriented so we never lost sight of the goal we had set. I found Andy’s services extremely valuable because he is fluent in quite a number of disciplines within occupational psychology: he masters a variety of tools that he uses depending on his client and also on the situation at stake. Before jumping to conclusions, Andy listens a lot and analyses in depth the various angles of any given issue. Overall, it’s extremely gratifying to work with Andy because he is committed to deliver to his client’s full satisfaction. Not only he works very hard but he also is a very enjoyable person to know."

"I retained Andy Milward’s services between 1991 and 1994 to help me with several business challenges with our software and services business in Scandinavia, Germany and East/Central Europe. He demonstrated considerable entrepreneurial ability as well as the skill to manage complex change in a culturally diverse setting. Andy did a terrific job in turning around our failing Swedish operation and helping our German business to achieve its targets. He was also particularly successful in setting up and then managing new distributor operations for us in Hungary and the Czech Republic ensuring that the financial targets were met. I strongly recommend Andy Milward to any organisation that has a business problem to solve. He is creative, analytical and results oriented."

"Working with Andy was an eye opening experience for me and I believe also for others in the team. His insights into the dynamics of the team and all the learnings we gained from the social network analysis he did with us, truly helped us to understand the situation better. At the same time I and others were able to use the knowledge we gained also in other teams we work in."

"I worked with Andy Milward in Budapest between 1992 and 1994. He helped me to build a successful company selling business intelligence software and related services. Andy negotiated the distribution agreement for us and helped us to develop our sales and marketing skills. He is a consummate entrepreneur and a skilful coach. I learned many things from him that have greatly benefited my career. He has integrity, energy and vision. I would recommend him as a consultant to any organisation that is looking to build a new venture."

"Andy helped me enormously to effect a cultural change programme while I was MD of an offshore merchant bank.
On my retirement, I joined him as a non-exec director and invested in his business. Ten years on, international companies and government departments use his unique talent for applying behavioural science to increase the effectiveness of their organisations."

"We have used Andy at Microsoft since 2006 as both an Executive Coach for the VP of our Consulting business in Europe, Middle East, and Africa, and as an organisational development consultant. He has done an outstanding job in both roles. As an Executive Coach, he has helped one of our senior leaders successfully address a number of very challenging issues which has led to a remarkable turn around of his performance and increased credibility with stakeholders. This was verified with a 360 degree feedback process that Andy developed and delivered this year. In addition, Andy has developed several very successful development workshops for our senior leadership team that again resulted in demonstrable positive results. I would enthusiastically recommend him for both coaching and organisation consulting work, and would be happy to discuss our experiences with Andy in more detail by phone."

"We worked with Andy over a number of years at Zurich International. He provided a complete culture change review and implementation program that became a significant part of our life in the Middle East operation. Andy's work was always fresh and innovative but rooted in a clear set of values that gave the process consistency. I can recommend him to anyone that wants to look at their existing operations and assess how they may best enhance them."
