His speaking portfolio includes keynotes on digital disruption, the workplace of the future, emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence, digital diversity, selling through the screen, creating a great digital first impression, and collaboration tips for distributed teams.

Clients agree the advice he delivers is relevant and completely relatable to each and every audience. As he has run companies, and lead large teams over a 30+ year career, you and your delegates are guaranteed to leave with a list of things they can do that day or the next week.


  • We worked with Andrew on a virtual round-table event, targeting the in-house legal leaders of technology businesses. From the conceptual phase through to delivery, Andrew had so many ideas to share with us and tailored his content specifically to our audience. During the event, he was fantastic at engaging the ‘room’ and ensured that everyone had a platform to share their thoughts and challenges. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Andrew and look forward to future collaborations together!
