When we know what you need, we’ll advise the best way Andy can help.



Referral strategy

If your goal is to generate referrals for your company, or to upskill your staff so that referrals come from across the team and not just from one person’s network, a clear strategy can make a tremendous difference.

With two decades of experience in the networking world, Andy Lopata can give you the strategy, skills and techniques to generate the referrals you’re looking for.



Professional relationships and networking

Networking is not just about sales. Individuals, teams and organisations can develop networks for lead generation, to break down internal silos, stimulate innovation, gain promotion, recruit and retain top staff, and develop future leaders.

In short, Andy Lopata will help you develop a networking strategy that generates tangible benefits for your needs.



Networking skills

When you want to enhance your networking skills, making the room work for you and your team, Andy Lopata will help.

This might be through keynote speaking, more relaxed lunch-and-learn sessions or a bespoke year-long programme.



Social media strategy

Networking today happens online as well as offline. We are almost overwhelmed by the opportunities to network on sites such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram, let alone regional and industry sites. Yet most people struggle to get past posting their picture and making a handful of connections.

The sites don’t help you understand where you should best spend your time and how to get the most out of them, so somebody needs to.

Andy Lopata will help you and your team devise a sensible strategy for your social media activity, to ensure your time is not wasted and that you get the results you’re looking for.




    Andy, thanks again for making our Balance HK event a huge success. The audience gave you their undivided attention and you could hear a pin drop when you were speaking. I have never witnessed that before, with a room of 170+ people!

    I worked with Andy at our recent internal Sales Conference in Barcelona. We face the challenge of extending our network, both internally within our own company but also within our client organisations and generating business through referrals.

    Andy came highly recommended from other industry experts and guest speakers and from the first phone call he has been great to do with business with.

    Andy is an expert public speaker – engaging, clearly delivering key messaging and interactive throughout. What most impressed me about Andy is his preparation and attention to detail both before and after the event. Andy offered a tailored approach, aligning his experience and advice based on the needs of Brother.

    I would certainly endorse Andy as someone who is easy to work with, very professional and personable, and ultimately someone that delivers results.

    As an international speaker on the topic of LinkedIn, I often have the privilege of sharing the stage with amazing Speakers. Business networking and referral marketing have always been a key part of my strategy for building my own business and are topics very close to my heart.

    I introduced Andy to one of my corporate clients to deliver a keynote on the subject of referrals, and he did not disappoint! His delivery to a multilingual audience, from over 20 countries in Barcelona was well paced and easy to understand. His topic and steps to achieving success in the area of referrals through your network were well delivered, inspiring and highly practical.

    In addition to being a GREAT speaker, Andy walks the talk, he lives and breathes his subject. He is a genuinely lovely individual, highly knowledgeable and someone that I am learning a great deal from, both on stage and off. Andy is highly professional and the feedback from my client was fantastic. Thanks for making me look great Andy, and for delivering exactly what my client was looking for.
