Having also spent a significant amount of time, more recently, working with SME organisations promoting sustainable growth Andy has garnered a real-world understanding of the leadership challenges at the coal-face for successful innovators in niche markets, to add to his experiences in the corporate world.

Andy’s Philosophy

Absolute belief in performance potential is the crux of Andy’s philosophy on achieving business development excellence. ‘Belief’ and in particular coaching has been the focus of many studies over the years in terms of operational delivery. If an individual believes in their abilities to be able to perform well, and knows that others believe in him/her too, research consistently proves that the individual performs better and progresses to, and is able to sustain, far higher levels of success, than those who do not have those kind of belief & support systems in place.
