Our Comment

"Having worked alongside some of the UK's high-profile storytellers, Andrew draws upon these colourful experiences to deliver talks that are detailed, witty and offer real human insight. His latest book on the Cambridge spy ring is a source of enduring fascination for audiences worldwide, and makes for a fascinating keynote. Andrew can also speak on how to get published and biography."
