“Andy stormed into Cape Town - straight into a vacuum created by the demise of the DMA and their annual conference. Gloves at the ready, and in the tradition of the travelling DM guru, he launched his volleys against wasteful direct marketing and the consequent compromise of clients' budgets, enchanting the audience with his witty demolition of the inept.

As a former salesman, Andy earned his colours amid the blood and gore of the battlefield, not in virtual reality, and this added lustre and credibility to his performance.

Not surprisingly, he stressed the need for basic training - research, reading the works of the masters - something that the older school of
copywriters took for granted and a necessary apprenticeship that today's copywriters disdain.

Good direct marketing is timeless. A great beginners' overview but also solid affirmation for old hands. He didn't miss a trick."

Philip Bateman - Creative Director, Arcadia Home Shopping, Cape Town, South Africa
