As an MBA qualified Forbes contributor & consultant, my practice is based around:

Lean Startup – Spend More Time Building vs Planning Your Business

Most products fail not because entrepreneurs fail to build what they set out to create but because they waste needless time, money, and effort building the wrong product. In other words, they make something nobody wants…We assist you in finding a better way.

Testing Business Ideas – Reduce the Risk of Failure

We use a set of tools, techniques, and tactics designed to help you validate an idea for a new product quickly, objectively, and accurately.

Business Modeling – The What, Who, How and Why

The strategy workshop process is your key to empowering participants, by using the tested Lean canvas, business model canvas, Value proposition canvas and Customer forces canvas, to identify areas of business growth, by following an approach used by the leading organisations.

Growth Marketing – Accelerating Your Growth

Ambitious Startups, Scale-up & established organisations hire us to identify their hidden growth opportunities in their digital sales funnel, develop their channels and ensure long-term, sustainable growth.

OKR Consulting – Drive Alignment & Focus

Objectives and key results lead to better performance management by tracking your progress through goal-setting. You can use them with groups and teams, and they’re set over a specified amount of time so you can track your progress.

Andrew is an astute, resilient and driven professional. With his strong consultancy skills directed towards innovation and knowledge sharing, he has the ability to turn management theory into practice. Andrew has developed into a consulting professional and I would recommend him to any organisation, especially when looking at his use of creative and analytical skills to develop products and teams.

Dr Ankur Kumar , The Priory Group

I worked with Andrew in the same global virtual design sprint project team, tackling the challenge of Pandemic and domestic violence. He made an invaluable contribution. I really got inspired by his dedication and commitment. He thinks logically and clearly โ€“ do expect a lot of intelligent questions from him! Creative and definitely an out-of-the-box innovative thinker Andrew earns my highest recommendation be it as an Innovation Consultant or Facilitator.

Elvin Turner, author of Be Less Zombie: How great companies create dynamic innovation, fearless leadership and passionate people

I am a fellow coach of Andrew’s; we improve our coaching practices in a mastermind group for Continuous Innovation coaches. Andrew is often the coach who is “ahead of the curve” on his knowledge and understanding of innovation best practices and coaching methods, and is the one I often look to for advice on my own practices. Of all the coaches in our mastermind, I would most highly recommend Andrew for clients and companies looking to speed up and improve their startup/innovation efforts.

James Rector , Coach

Andrew is very passionate about start-ups and innovation and it comes across very clearly in terms of the work he is doing for his clients. He is always a step ahead and ensures that he brings the best thinking and approach to market both in terms of challenging his own business, but also for start-up businesses he is coaching. Andy and I have benefitted greatly supporting each other businesses and use each other as sounding boards. Andrew clearly demonstrates that he understands the benefits of the gig economy brings to market and how we can all benefit working together.
