Andrea P. Howe is a recovering information technology consultant who has spent nearly 30 years working with clients, managing projects, and facilitating groups of all kinds and sizes. In 2006, Andrea got laser-focused on the subject of trust at work—specifically, what it takes to create exceptional relationships that are both distinctive and lasting. Her mission: to kick conventional business wisdom to the curb and transform how people work together as a result.
Toward that end, Andrea has worked with executives, leaders, and teams throughout the U.S. and Canada, as well as in Mexico, Brazil, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Australia, Singapore, and more. She is consistently described by her audiences as thought-provoking, engaging, practical, and *real*.
“…she really wowed the audience. She is a dynamic, informative and engaging presenter with a valuable message…”
“…in a short period of time and with a great deal of interactivity and energy, Andrea was able to give all in attendance a clearer view of how they could improve their own client relationships and takeaways that could be implemented immediately…”
Andrea is the co-author, with Charles H. Green, of The Trusted Advisor Fieldbook: A Comprehensive Toolkit for Leading with Trust. She is the founder of The Get Real Project and a principal with Trusted Advisor Associates. She previously worked for the $1B technology consulting firm American Management Systems (AMS), where her roles included project manager, client relationship manager, and Director of Leadership Development. Over her career, Andrea has dramatically increased the effectiveness of thousands of people in client service roles through off-sites, workshops, presentations, and learning programs in interpersonal skills and mindsets.
Andrea holds an MS in Organization Development from the American University/NTL program (2002) and a BBA in Computer Information Systems from Texas A&M (1992).
When she is not working, Andrea can be found in the art studio taking far too long to finish a new mosaic or looking for a local place to dance (swing and salsa are favorites).
