About your Teachers:
With a silly putty voice, hilarious heart-filled stories, and amazing mouth noises (arguably, the greatest whistler in the world), one-person-showman Andy Offutt Irwin is equal parts mischievous schoolboy and the Marx Brothers, peppered with a touch of the Southern balladeer. One of the most sought after performing storytellers in the United States, Andy is a perennial favorite of the Teller-in-Residence Program at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and he has been a Featured Teller at the National Storytelling Festival nine times (as of 2017). Andy’s numerous awards include Storytelling World awards in 2015, the 2013 Natioal Storytelling Network’s ORACLE Circle of Excellence Award, and the 2001 Sammy Clark Award for Exemplary Teaching and Service from Emory University.
Kelly Vandever is a leadership and communications expert who helps leaders and organizations thrive in today’s attention-deficit, entertain-me-now, wait-while-I-post-that-on-Facebook world. Kelly is also a past President of the National Speakers Association, Georgia Chapter.
