Andrew Donofrio Reviews

Brian Reich Chief Security Officer Top 10 US Bank

Review: Andrew Donofrio was brought into our organization at a time when we were in a team building and reorganization phase. He provided a keynote speech for our leadership summit that set the perfect tone. His delivery is dynamic, and his content is first rate. He had a significant impact on our entire team.

Elaine Montilla Assistant Vice President and CIO The Graduated Center, CUNY

Review: I started working with Andrew as my professional development and leadership coach when I received a promotion to a senior management position. We worked together for 6 months, and he had a tremendous positive impact on helping me develop my leadership style and communicate more effectively with my team. Andrew showed me the power of servant leadership and the importance of meeting my staff where they are and not where I am. Finally, the process taught me many things about myself that helped me not only grow as a professional but even had a positive impact in my personal life. I continue to use the tools shared and they are part of my daily life. Andrew was the ability to strike a unique balance of careful listening with sharing his wealth of experience and ideas with me without making me feel overwhelmed and after every season left me with helpful insights, ideas, or questions to ponder. During my time with Andrew, I felt heard, supported, and championed in the attainment of my goals. He has been a vital resource to me, and I look forward to our continuing relationship. I know that I can always count on him whenever challenging situations come up.

He delivers high quality content that has been extremely valuable for our team. Additionally, I have seen Andrew speak to an audience of several hundred people at the annual New Jersey CPA conference. He has a unique ability to captivate a large audience and delivers his message with energy and conviction.

Richard M. Kelly - Senior Vice President Global Safety, Security, and Business Continuity Chubb - NYC Metro Area

Review: I first met Andrew at a professional association annual seminar, and he was fantastic. Motivating discussion about leadership and team building, and very engaging with the group. I knew after seeing his presentation I wanted to bring him in to present the same high energy concepts to my global team. We brought our global security and BC professionals into Miami and Drew did his thing…they Loved it!!! We received rave reviews for his presentation and engaging discussion with the team. I highly recommend Drew for his leadership and team building expertise.

Michael G. Frenkel - MFC PR Travel Conversations, LLC

Review: I worked with Andrew during the course of growth and transition in my business and found him to be an invaluable partner, sounding board and mentor. He brings a unique combination of intellectual rigor and interpersonal empathy which is rare - combining best of breed analytical approaches with a keen ear and eye which makes him a great strategic partner for business transaction decisions and negotiations. I recommend him highly as a coach and advisor who can add tremendous value across the lifecycle and decision-making moments of businesses, and the executives who drive them.

Robert Dodd - New Jersey Special Investigators Association, Board Member

Review: Andrew spoke at our NJSIA conference in Atlantic City, NJ. He is an outstanding speaker that keeps his audience engaged through the presentation. With a comfortable approach, he blends his knowledge about effective communication with his vast experiences in leadership. By recognizing the challenges that current leaders face in the workplace, Andrew provides detailed examples and strategies. The participants walk away with a better understanding of workplace issues as well as specific approaches to address them. I highly recommend Andrew’s presentation and look forward to attending another one in the near future.

Billy McCarthy, LSW Home Care Liaison

Review: I began working with Drew in 2019, in a group setting prior to the pandemic with the goal of strengthening my sales skills at work. During the pandemic, one of the things I placed great importance on, was the time spent each week with Drew 1:1. He helped me to become aware of the things most important to me, how to formulate goals to visualize those things, and how to plan action steps to realize those visions. In the 3 years i’ve worked with him, some notable results worth mentioning: 1. Work: I increased my income by 30%, obtained the benefits I felt I deserved, and ended up in a much different role, better suited to me with endless opportunities for growth. 2. Fitness/Health: I lost a sixth of my body mass, (60 pounds) and have maintained this over the past year. Cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar in optimal range for my age (50). 3. Family/Interpersonal Relationships: Difficult to measure, but he has helped me to improve the communication style with those I love most…my wife, my children, and my siblings, so that our interactions are much more pleasant with better outcomes. We are all happier. 4. Music: He has helped me to build my once “hobby” as a musician into a becoming a successful, part-time career as a professional musician.

Melissa A. Dardani, CPA, CFE, MAcc - MD Advisory Services

Review: Andrew (Drew) Donofrio has been guiding me professionally since 2019. His advice provided me the foundational tools to begin my adventure as a sole proprietor, after having spent my career in public accounting. It was his unwavering support and belief in me that eventually translated to belief in myself. I endearingly refer to him as my professional therapist. I appreciate Drew's style as a coach because it is highly personalized. Whenever we met, it was not only highly productive time, but I also felt like I was meeting with an old friend. He invests in relationships with his clients early on, spending the time to learn about our goals and what motivates us. But it doesn't end there. As the relationship evolves and the goals change, Drew keeps his finger on the pulse and adjusts his approach accordingly. He epitomizes what it means to be a good listener, and constantly finds ways to add value and help.
