How I can help you
Working mostly with clients in the creative industries, I help businesses, teams and individuals perform at their best. Recently, I've helped a team manager make the step up to senior leader. I've supported a copywriter as she launched her freelance business. And I've worked with a design agency to help them embrace a fresh mindset and galvanise around a new, collective brand purpose.
With a background as an ad copywriter and experience as a stand up comedian, I'm well placed to run a session that's useful and fun. Right now, I'm delivering 'How To Present Creative Work' - a new product that combines a workshop and 1-to-1 Skype coaching. In the past, I've run creative sessions for all kinds of organisations: FTSE 100 businesses, universities, charities - you name it.
I still do some work as a freelance copywriter for agencies and directly for clients. I specialise in employer branding, employee engagement and internal communications. In my last full-time role as Head Writer with Havas People, I played a leading role in winning the industry's 'Work of the Year' award for our prison officer recruitment campaign.
Things I've been doing in the past few months:
Business & Personal Coach
By graduating from the highly reputable Barefoot course, I added some coaching credentials to my MSc Psychology.
I worked with WaterAid to develop a central creative proposition for this year's fundraising and engagement campaigns.
Coach & Facilitator
point 6 design
Using a mixture of techniques from coaching and improv comedy, I created a workshop to help design agency Point 6 bring their new brand purpose to life for employees.
What clients say
Head of Brand and Creative at WaterAid
"Andrew has done a great job of leading our creative workshops: bringing an ad agency background into the NGO world helps to focus ideas into making an impact in the wider world. He takes a fresh approach and really focuses on the end result. A pleasure to work with and would happily recommend him."
Creative Director at Point 6
"Andrew delivered 'How to Present Creative Work' for our team of designers and writers. They came away with increased confidence, some great tips, and bespoke feedback on their presentation skills. The fact that Andrew has an ad agency background makes him ideal for this kind of work, plus his past experience as a stand up comedian was an unexpected bonus!"
Technical Operations Lead at GE Healthcare
"Andrew has the ability to support me and also challenge my mindset, which has been significant for me in understanding my potential. Our sessions have allowed me time to address the challenges I am facing in my day to day work. I’ve come up with new ideas and gained more insight into what I should and could be doing."
