What guarantees, if any, are offered to clients?
This is a great question. I 100% guarantee that if a group follows the process that I present, they will be more productive, think more critically, have better attitudes, create a better working environment, and will become more effective in their personal lives. If this does not happen, I will give the organization a full refund.

. What are the 5 most pressing needs of clients? What keeps them awake at night? Please prioritize.
1. Changing Demographics: How we do learn and manage diversity as it is changing our business practices and our clients?
2. Education of Staff: How do I educate my staff and employees to better serve and work with people from other cultures, backgrounds, and mindsets?
3. Fear of Litigation: What happen if we fail to do #1 and #2 well? How do I cover my bases against lawsuits?
4. Best Practices: We need to understand the market and be a leader in it to be effective and grow.
5. Good Business: These diversity and inclusion efforts are good for business and building community partnerships.
D. Of all you offer, what are THE most phenomenal things that will make a prospective client pick up the phone and call?
Word of Mouth. My sessions are an experience. Thought provoking is the simplest way to describe what we do. We present diversity and inclusion in ways that are often overlooked or deemed to be too simple to be the answer. Our goals are to cause people to pause long enough for them to rethink, analyze, and make their own decision about the world around them.
E. What are the things that make you stand out from all competitors? What truly differentiates you from the rest?
There is no condemnation, no faulting, blaming, or shaming people in my sessions. We discuss the illusions of difference and how we can build on our common values to build a stronger society.
F. What can you offer us, like something we cannot resist?
We have a number if free courses, DVDs, CDs, and books that we can make available.
I am also willing to conduct free sessions depending on your situation.
G. How can we “name” you?
Andre, the enkindled spirit.
H. What can we use to aid the cost of your program?
We often offer seasonal coupons and limited time offers.
I. What are the common/greatest benefits clients have received as a result of your presentations?
They receive instruction that is thought provoking, passionate, motivational, energizing, powerful, humorous, real, genuine, human, and engaging.
J. Do you have a logo?
Our logo is simple. We nurture growth in individual as groups and our logo support those efforts. The colors demonstrate this best: fresh, growth and life. The cut away fruit and the seeds represent the service to others today and tomorrow. We can best sum up this by saying, "Your fruit is not for you, and it is not fruit unless someone else can eat it."
Andre's purpose is to reconnect people to their Dignity and Honor in Being Human.
We are never far
nurturing the seeds of change
