CEO, Speaker & Author
Andy possesses that rare combination of knowledge and accessibility. He takes otherwise complex and complicated topics and puts them into language that is understandable. In addition, Andy has a way of making technical topics interesting - not an easy feat! I highly recommend Andy to anyone who would like to better understand the world of technology.
I had the opportunity to hear Andy present at the SME U Workshop on October 11, 2016. This was an excellent presentation for me to gain additional motivation for my position as a Director of Sales and Marketing. As leaders we all constantly think of ways to improve our business and ourselves, and Andy put into perspective that mediocrity is not the vision leaders should run with if you want to separate yourself from your competition. His presentation motivated me to think outside the box, be above mediocrity, and to do so, you must make sure your team shares your vision through communication and best practices. If your entire team shares your vision to be above the status quo, your business will stand out. Andy was extremely engaging, and his presentation made me want to surround myself with the ideas he shared about his business, for my business. I would highly recommend connecting with Andy to understand how his practices will stand above the traditional ways of doing business, and what it can do to enhance your vision for your company. I cannot wait to network with Andy again, and I look forward to the opportunities, and engaging ideas Insivia will bring to our board and organization, SME Cleveland.
Andy has spoken at many of our eMarketing Techniques events, and the response from the audience has always been positive. He has a good mixture of strategic teaching and tactical training that audience members seem to enjoy. His experiences in the real world help make him a strong public speaker.
I met Andy Halko at the 2014 Digital Summit in Atlanta, where he spoke on a panel I moderated and also gave a 20-minute solo presentation. Not only is Andy knowledgeable and passionate about business strategy, marketing, design, and technology, but he presents information with a confident, relaxed energy that you don't find in many speakers. He holds the audience's attention and gets his points across succinctly and creatively. Book him as a speaker or panelist for your next event, and you'll have powerful results.

Andy is a complete natural at speaking and presenting because of his innate mastery of the material. His expertise runs deep as he is never at loss for delivering extended information during Q&A. He provides sources, experience, and educated opinion. I really enjoy his sense of humor which keeps his technical details easy to understand, and fun!
Andy and staff don't "sugar-coat" content marketing. They approach the subject like business people who are speaking to business people. They keep it simple and "deployable". There are way too many "social media" consultants who think that Spacebook is the way to go, or those who actually have other people do the work. Insivia/ Andy understand the SALES process and how to support it.
Andy has been able to achieve the Herculean task of staying current in our world of constantly evolving technology. As a speaker he is forthright, knowledgeable and personable. He is engaging and never "talks down" to his audience…
I have attended the Business Boot Camp: How to Optimize SEO & Analytics delivered by Andy Halko who I consider one of the best speakers I have ever experienced. I really got a lot out of his presentation. He provided excellent tips, had an answer for every question and I like that he didn’t rush through it. Thank you Andy, it has been a great pleasure to attend your session.
Andy is a rising star. His presentation provided real-world insight and an honest look at what it takes to deliver value and build a great company.
"Go get Andy Halko! If you are looking for a way to dimensionalize the concepts of collaboration, team work and purpose, you will love Andy Halko. I am honored to have a wonderful marketing team. They are creative, witty, smart and respectful of one another. But we were overdue for a meaningful team gathering, one that would educate and challenge this very well-read and highly productive team. Andy was able to produce what felt like a one-of-a-kind, 2-1/2 hour exploration of team dynamics and one’s role and responsibility to them. Completely fresh. Great pace. Andy impressed me with his on-the-spot agility, adapting to the fluid conversation and areas of interest advanced by the team. I not only recommend Andy, but fully intend to bring him back for a refresher to insure we are applying everything we learned."
Andy's knowledge and understanding of SEO along with web development overall is outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed hist last presentation on SEO and my employees that attended came away with many new things to work on. I would recommend that everyone attend one of these seminars and/or discuss with Insivia/Andy methods on improving your online presence. It will be well worth the time.
