Our mission is to inspire leaders and managers to be simply extraordinary, no matter what stage of their career they are at.

By supporting your personal growth through a novel approach to thinking about leadership, we hope to build intelligent leaders and effective managers that organisations are desperately calling out for.

We explore the juxtaposition of two very different backgrounds – a fighter pilot and a CEO – to understand the spectrum of leadership, diving deep into how to handle the trickiest and most important challenge on your radar: people.

So, we invite you to strap in and take flight with us on this novel leadership journey.

As well as his passion for outdoor pursuits (especially offshore sailing, fly-fishing and skiing), Andy is an avid student of leadership who loves to support others in their personal growth which has led him to currently be in the closing stages of qualifying as an Executive Coach. When he is not spending time with his family, or renovating his house, Andy loves nothing more than keeping fit and following his life’s passion: helping people to solve problems that improve society.
