Andrew Hoggard

Andrew Hoggard is a powerful communicator and author who delivers inspirational keynote presentations throughout Australasia. He has extensive experience speaking to anywhere from intimate groups to large sized audiences.

Andrew has managed businesses across Australia and New Zealand and is passionate in presenting his unique thoughts on life, business and personal change.

Why Business from the Heart?
In his 35 years of sales and leadership, Andrew discovered that education does not change your behaviour. As an example the doctor who sits in front of his patient and says do not smoke, it is bad for you. Then while the patient is paying their bill he is out the back lighting up. Why does he do that? In his head he knows the right thing to do (education) but it has never transferred to his heart.
That’s why Andrew developed Business from the Heart specifically for organisations who are fed up with spending money on training programs that don’t work and only speak to what you already know.
Unlike so many other speakers and trainers who focus on techniques and programs, Andrew’s focus is on the ‘heart’ of your business so that the things you already know become the things that you believe and act upon. We all know the right thing to do but we don’t change our lives until there is a synchronisation of the things in your head with the ignition of your heart to get things started. This is the secret to achieving full engagement for you and your team in your business. That is what Andrew does.

Andrew’s focus is on the ‘heart’ of your business so that the things you already know become the things that you believe and act upon. We all know the right thing to do, but we don’t change our lives until there is a synchronisation of the things in your head with the ignition of your heart to get things started

His keynote was captivating and thoroughly entertaining as he presented to our staff from across New Zealand.

Andrew thanks for finding the time to present to our management team at short notice. It was the perfect start to our 2 day strategy session. As you know, CSL operates in a “Trade” space and your clear, direct and well-articulated message met the non-corporate brief. This gave the team a refreshing cornerstone on which to base our 2 day strategic meeting. We all felt excited and challenged about who we could be and with your opening words, we now are challenged about who we will be. - Derek Burgess Director CSLinfrastructure

I have had the pleasure of hearing Andrew Hoggard twice now. Both times I was personally challenged and inspired to look at my life and consider my steps from a business and commercial perspective. Business From the Heart is warm and funny and yet cuts to a deep place unlike any other presentation. I can confidently recommend engaging Andrew for your next event as a keynote speaker. You won’t be disappointed – Dr John Hale BDS, MSc (London), FIC

I would like to thank you for the wonderful lectures that you gave today. They were really inspirational and hit home to me. Things have not gone to plan for me this year, but your talk really grounded me, reminded me of what I am, who I am but more importantly Why…It really gave me hope and renewed the passion in me. – NSW Dentist

Andrew trained our sales team at our annual sales meeting. His 3 hour presentation was not only high energy and engaging but it was practical and life changing.

Andrews sales training sessions are inclusive with group discussions and thought provoking in the way he explores well researched principles with a. new flair. He met my brief perfectly and I warmly recommend him to be in front of your team giving them the nudge they need. It will make a positive difference – Christine Bell Marketing Director Oraltec

Andrew speaks to the heart from the heart. Gifted with natural energy and vitality, Andrew draws his audience in to share his message … he knows this space from his own long experience in business and life itself. Vibrant images and clear messages we are all familiar with, are presented, that resonate with new energy and meaning as we re-discover what it really is all about. Open your heart to Andrew and be inspired not just motivated, to become the author of your own true self. Give the gift of yourself to your world and truly be alive with all its possibilities. Thank you Andrew. - John Hamilton BDS

When Andrew Hoggard starts his presentation with “Im not here to motivate you” …… don’t believe him. I have been very fortunate to have secured Andrew as the guest speaker at dental clinical forums to present his series of “Business from the heart” and “Life from the heart “.   It is without fail that he takes his audience on a roller coaster ride of emotions that has them laughing one minute, crying the next and absolutely motivated and inspired to be the best person they can possibly be by the end of his time with them.

I have sat in the audience where the numbers were in the hundreds and I have also been part of an intimate group of 10. Regardless of the size of the audience, Andrew fills the room with his energy so that it embraces its occupants and takes them on a journey that they will always remember. He fills their hearts and fills their heads with the possibilities, hopes and realities that life has to offer, he inspires his audience to pick life up in their hands, examine it , review it and improve it. To this day when organising clinical forums the most common request I have is “When can we get Andrew back?” Life isn’t measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away. This is one moment you won’t want to miss.  - Marena Oldfield Sales Specialist NSW

Business from the heart presented by Andrew Hoggard is a meaningful passionate and inspiring experience that words can not express.  The enthusiasm that Andrew expresses and the unique performance is captivating. The audience were holding their breath in anticipation to every word that Andrew delivered. A truly amazing event that will stay with you long after you leave and will change your way of approaching things you'll do in the future. – Scott Taylor Elite Engraving NSW

Andrew Hoggard – Motivational Speaker PLUS….Vibrant, entertaining  with a meaningful message a unique talent to engage his audience immediately and hold till the end. 

Andrew is a powerful speaker in both a small intimate group of 10 or an auditorium of 250 plus. Combining music,video, humour and real life experiences Andrew’s tailored presentations hit the mark – time and time again – it was such a pleasure to work with him as keynote speaker for several of my clients – Andrew was a hit whether presenting to front desk staff, sales professionals , managers or Principal Dentists .  Feedback from audience and clients - always a positive with many return requests to book Andrew in for next conference or another department.

Summing up Andrew Hoggard- he may  present “Business” from the Heart but is of such a calibre that the audience will comment that they are walking away with something that they can apply to their everyday personal life as well as their business life. - Lorraine Wilson Business Manager NSW

We selected Andrew to speak at our conference largely after reading his testimonials and because the topic “Business From The Heart” was a great fit.  Andrew’s energy and obvious passion were soaked up by the attendees ,many of whom commented afterwards just how much they enjoyed the session and that the topic really resonated with them.  Andrew was the first speaker  and the mood he created set the tone for the remainder of the conference which was a great success.  - Mike James , Director NOVUS N.Z.
