What People Are Saying
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.
This seminar was incredibly helpful and necessary. Thanks Andy!
Andy proved himself a knowledgeable and engaging trainer. He conducted several workshops aimed at raising institutional awareness and sensitivity towards members of our community identifying along the LGBTQ spectrum. Andy's knowledge of the prominent issues helped foster a robust discussion of ways we can strengthen institutional support for members of this community. Equally important, Andy's demeanor and style created a supportive environment for participants to ask questions and explore uncertainties within their own knowledge base.
Andy is a clear, charismatic, and engaging presenter! Thank you for this invaluable training!
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.
Andy is a calm, clear, welcoming instructor.
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 is using his formidable, intellectual talents and skills and meshing them ingeniously to make real and positive social change.
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.
I cannot thank you enough for the work you’ve done for us. I’m so grateful to have your support and look forward to our continued collaboration! Your thoughtfulness in working with me to develop this content carried into the facilitation. You not only listened to me during the process, but you listened to what each participant brought to the room, and incorporated those specific items in to the conversation seamlessly.
