What People Are Saying
Andy is a clear, charismatic, and engaging presenter! Thank you for this invaluable training!
I found this training very powerful, and could have kept listening and discussing for another two hours!
Out in the Open is a compelling, courageous, and uplifting work of spoken-word theater whose message is as contemporary as it is timeless. Andy Cofino has a rare talent. Every performance was absolutely sold-out with standing-room only access, each ending with thunderous standing ovations and multiple encores. Every single one of them was earned.
Andy was truly great- A perfect person for this seminar/training with an incredible pedigree and lifetime of experience.
So much important information was covered, and done so in a way that is meant to educate and build upon. It never felt like anyone was being judged or shamed for not knowing something. The intent was always to help us help our students.
Andy makes such an important and sensitive topic something that everyone can understand. He created a safe space for questions, mistakes and most importantly, learning.
Andy opened for a lecture I gave to New York state school nurses on LGBTQ issues and wowed, moved, and taught the participants with his clarity, pathos, and brilliance. What a way to teach understanding and tolerance!
Andy is using his formidable, intellectual talents and skills and meshing them ingeniously to make real and positive social change.
This training session was extremely well organized and presented in a timely manner; extremely time efficient. Andy presented himself as comfortable in his knowledge of his subject matter. Extremely well done. One of the best sessions we have had in these respects.
I thought Andy was wonderful- excellent energy. I appreciated the “straight to the point” quality of the entire training. No nonsense- tell it like it is. No time wasting- which I very much appreciate.
