Why Andy’s Message Matters

We are living in an exponentially accelerating world in which the fundamentals of technology, business and society are changing on a daily basis. To adapt and cope we are becoming increasingly dependent on our

assumptions to speed the decision making process and to keep things moving.

The more we treat these assumptions as truths the more dangerous they become by:

  • Holding us back by keeping us stuck in doing the same things
  • Forming the wrong judgments
  • Limiting our thinking
  • Taking us down the wrong paths.
“Thanks Andy for the great keynote that made us challenge our assumptions.  Truly appreciated your taking the time to learn our business. The Assumpt! changed the way we think.”

Associate Director, Global Regulatory Affairs, Bayer Healthcare

Why Choose Andy

For an unforgettable, engaging, interactive and educational keynote experience that provides tools to sustain learning over time.

A contrarian viewpoint that assumptions are neither good, nor bad. It’s what you do with them, or don’t do with them, that result in good or bad outcomes.

As told through personal stories, executive interviews and business case histories, Andy’s systematic process helps you and your team understand:

  • The root of your assumptions
  • How to spot them
  • How to appreciate their power
  • How to manage your assumptions rather than have them manage you.
“Andy, I can’t thank you enough for your fantastic presentation and discussion on the Assumpt! This was such a fun and positive session for our team.”

What is The Assumpt?

The Assumpt! is an innovative strategy that allows you to identify and then challenge assumptions which otherwise act as barriers to your reaching your leadership, marketing, innovation or diversity goals.

The Assumpt! helps the people within organizations understand that it’s OK to make assumptions. To judge yourself for making it is non-productive.

The Assumpt! helps you recognize that you make assumptions and surface them. This is called making an Assumpt! . Once you make an Assumpt! then you have the power to challenge it.

“Andy Cohen’s program on “The Assumpt” provided our participants with insights into everyday challenges in business communications where our assumptions hold us back from reaching our full potential. He challenged us to look differently at our assumptions not as truths but as beliefs and how that shift can help inform better communications and business decisions.”
