I use a systemic method of coaching, looking at yourself in the context of your whole life, your team and organisational and business context.
Together, we create what I call a "learning alliance", based on a mutually agreed contract and the coaching goals.
The “learning alliance” defines the right mix of coaching, mentoring and learning support that I bring into the coaching relationship. It also defines the appropriate coaching style that I use, depending on your needs.
I have been coaching business leaders, teams, investors and startups for 20 years or more, and hold a Masters degree in executive coaching from Ashridge (Hult) business school and a professional doctorate from Middlesex University.
I am a former Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Birkbeck, University of London and I continue to be a Visiting Fellow at the Birkbeck Centre for Innovation Management.
I do vary these fees for job seekers and those with special needs, depending on circumstances.
Andrew has a wonderful manner when he is in teacher/training mode and you WANT to learn from him. I have had the pleasure of being this situation on a one:one and a group situation and came away each time enlightened and more importantly what he taught stayed with me.
I supervised Andrew through his practitioner doctorate at Middlesex University and was hugely impressed by the innovative work that he did in supporting young entrepreneurs. Andrew has a wide corporate experience gained in many international settings and has vast experience as an executive coach.
This combination of successful engagement at both the 'C' suite level and also the young start up is rare and Andrew negotiates this territory with panache and wisdom.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew as a coach, mentor and academic advisor.
Prof Brian Sutton
Andrew is a great colleague and a great asset to Birkbeck's Centre for Innovation Management Research. His expertise on entrepreneurship theory and practice has been very valuable to the Centre, first as Entrepreneur in Residence where he contributed to the development of the student-led Entrepreneurship Hub, and later as a Fellow of the Centre contributing to our research and knowledge exchange activities. Andrew is a knowledgeable and professional colleague, and a great mentor to students and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Andrew conducted a short workshop with myself and my colleagues on how coaching and mentoring crosses over with the role of teaching. He was well prepared, offered us a lot of additional resources both before and after the workshop and was generous with his time.
Andrew is a knowledgeable and considerate tutor who takes the time to fully understand the needs and aims of his students whether he is interacting with them on a one off basis or building up a relationship over time. I have always found him to be a curious and interested person when it comes to learning about subjects which are not his specialism and has a genuine purpose of helping others.
It is rare to find a tutor who is equally as eager to learn from others as they are for teaching. I cannot recommend Andrew enough.
I have participated in Andrew's online classes and they provide excellent professional and personal development support. They are full of interesting ideas and useful tips. Andrew's teaching benefits from his coaching approach, and he asks lots of good thought-provoking questions and he listens well. I would definitely recommend his classes to anyone looking for advanced professional or academic learning.
