Andrew is the leader of the TEDxStockholm Speaker Team and a speaker coach. He has been an active member of the TEDxStockholm team since 2015 and was a member of the board 2020-2023. In real life he is a speaker himself, a ghost writer of other peoples’ speeches, a speaker coach and career mentor for professional speakers. He speaks about influencing skills, networking, communicating innovative ideas and related topics in business schools, universities, companies, government departments and other organizations. Somehow, he also manages to find time for writing, either ghost writing for other people or freelance journalism. He has also written a book about networking and is working on new books about communicating disruptive innovations and the art of lean speaking – speaking well with the least possible effort. Andrew was born in the UK but has lived most of his life in Italy, France and now Stockholm. He speaks Italian, French, English and basic Swedish. But his goal is now to learn Swedish well enough to get paid for speaking it.
