I have been a professional speaker since age 21 and am a certified public speaking trainer through the Intrigue Agency.
I have helped more than 50 clients craft compelling stories, takeaways and themes for their signature keynote.
I specialize in the following categories:
Traditional keynote - 60-90 min,
TED format - 15-18
Media Appearance - 2 to 5 min
My goal is to help you connect with your purpose and passion for whatever talk you are giving and to craft a structure that you are genuinely excited to give.
I can also deliver highly effective presenting techniques that cary from hand gestures, stance and even audience engagement.

In 2011 I had the privilege to work under Andrew's guidance at Dreams for Kids. Among many things, Andrew set a high standard for professionalism in communicating that I continually refer back to in my daily activities. Andrew has a unique ability to make individuals feel important, understood and welcome simply through his ability to actively listen.
Within the first minute of Andrew's session I was sold. He tells engaging stories and made sure to apply his techniques to the audience members' businesses. Attendees found his message not only relevant -- it kept them engaged for 3 hours. Our participants walked away with new signature stories for their businesses; stories that serve the all-important task of clearly explaining how what they do can help potential clients meet their objectives. Our members are better off for having heard Andrew and I definitely recommend him.
I recently met Andrew at a Young Professionals Panel as a part of the New York City Program of Dream Careers. I very much appreciated talking with him! He gave some great advice that I know will me crucial to implementing an I AM THAT GIRL chapter at the University of Southern California. After speaking with Andrew, I felt inspired and ready to work.
I had the privilege of hearing Andrew present to us at the St. Louis National Speakers Association meeting in early April. What he shared with us throughout still keeps my mind reeling about the possibilities I have as an entrepreneur who believes in what I care about, as Andrew does. His passion for the topics he shared was awe inspiring, and I wanted to share an email excerpt I wrote to him in thanks for coming to speak to our group:
Thank you so much for coming to speak at the NSA meeting in St. Louis last week. I totally appreciated basically every single word you said, and since then, it has been keeping me engaged in such awesome thought about how I am projecting myself, as well as my business, among other things. It is incredible to see what you have created with your personal and professional 'brand,' though I hate to even label it as brand, because it seems that you sincerely LIVE it each day, and that, to me, doesn't seem like a 'brand,' so much as a way of life.
I also have to share with you that your comments on 'taking a photo and spending your vacation checking for likes' was so hilariously appropriate, as I had JUST returned from my first snow ski trip in Canada, doing the exact same thing. So when you said that, it really resonated. And I got to have a conversation with a new contact the other day, who loves photography, and ask him about 'who' he was taking photos for. Was it himself, to appreciate his travels and eye for photog, or was it for his 'audience' that he shares his pics with? It silenced him pretty quickly in thought. Just wanted to share that with you.
Andrew Horn is a genuine speaker who speaks directly from the heart. As an internship program director I am tasked with organizing speaking events for our internship class each summer. Of the 8-10 speakers I invite each year Andrew is among the top rated. His ability to read the room and pivot to connect with his audience is uncanny. If you are looking for a speaker who will be relate-able, genuine and can cover a variety of topics, I'd highly recommend Andrew.
Andrew is fantastic speaker drawing from personal knowledge, he has a great ability to motivate. ALL the evaluations from his presentation were excellent and several had AWESOME in caps! We were so pleased to have him speak to our attendees, providing creative and specialized tools for doing their jobs.
Andrew did a presentation of his company for my group of visiting French MBA students in New York. What I can say about Andrew is that he is a captivating speaker, an expert in his field, enthusiastic about branding and communication strategy, and very good at stimulating conversations. I would highly recommend other companies hire him as a motivational speaker and coach.
Andrew Horn was an amazing boss who provided the proper guidance and leadership needed for interns.
Andrew Horn delivered a workshop to the Dream Careers participants at NYU during the summer of 2013. As a speaker, he relates well to the audience and is genuine in his approach. His presentation was specific and provided valuable takeaways on how to effectively communicate and build relationships. Andrew offered memorable ACRONYMS, anecdotes and interactive activities to help audience members digest the wealth of information he provided. I recommend Andrew for speaking engagements and would hire him again!
