2nd March 2014 Manchester-based business speaker and trainer Andrew Thorp took the title ‘Speaker of the Year’ at last night’s national awards ceremony of the Association of Professional Coaches, Trainers and Consultants (APCTC), held in Birmingham.
Andrew was amongst seven short-listed contenders for this prestigious award and was dubbed ‘the Passionate Storyteller’.
Andrew said, “Three weeks ago during Chinese New Year celebrations I received a fortune cookie at HSBC Bank in Macclesfield which foretold that I’d receive recognition for a long-standing project. I guess this is it and I’m absolutely delighted to receive the award.”
Andrew’s career as a speaker and trainer began six years ago as part of a personal reinvention following a long career in the golf & leisure industry. He has since become well known for his inspirational speaking on the theme of business storytelling and coaches executives in effective communication skills. Along with his partner Sara Knowles, he is co-founder of the innovative training company MojoLife, based in Central Manchester.
