I have worked with Andy for over two years on a focused growth strategy for my business in a non-executive director (NED) capacity. Having worked with several NEDs in the past and knowing that everyone has a different style, I have been highly impressed with how Andy has applied his extensive experience, skills, knowledge and expertise to us as a business.
He demonstrates exceptionally strong emotional intelligence coupled with an incisive commercial focus. He has made and continues to make such an impact on the business in every area and to become a true member of our team. He keeps the management team on track with an empathetic style and is always pushing the boundaries for what we can achieve, driving ambition through the business at every level and bringing fresh ideas to the table. I highly recommend working with Andy – he also has a great sense of humour which makes monthly board meetings a great experience.

Andy partnered with our leadership team to assist in executing a growth strategy that drove the agency towards achieving its best ever financial performance. In addition, Andy partnered with the leadership team to enhance the culture of the business focussing on collaboration, staff development and retention alongside ensuring the leadership team were leading by example and consistently living the values of the agency. I would recommend Andy to any business looking to achieve significant and long-term growth
James Foulkes - Kingpin
Andy is one of a kind. He shaped my thinking and sharpened my commercials when starting up. This fuelled our growth strategy and within 18 months we established a presence in another major UK city. What makes him different from the pack, is that he genuinely cares and wants you to succeed. And that makes partnering with him an absolute pleasure.
Chris Leo - Pivot
Andy is a great partner to work with, he created a clear roadmap for us to grow the business, collaborated positively with the leadership team and helped us to look at things from different angles. He is also good fun to work with. I highly recommend Andy to any business, with the ambition to drive their business forward to the next stage.
Fergus Clawson - Blueclaw
Andy managed to quickly establish himself as a crucial component to GoldSand Digital’s growth journey because, quite simply, he has an incredible understanding the steps required and appreciates the ebbs and flows of an independent agency. It’s a partnership. As a collaborative we have managed to evaluate what was working and supporting growth, and what was a barrier to success. Not always what we wanted to hear, but we needed to listen. He helped us to develop a growth plan that we could achieve and then, and this is the important part, kept us accountable for accomplishing that plan.
Nick Golding - GoldSand
Through engaging with Andy as our advisor, the leadership team and I have been able to further establish a more focussed and profitable agency. His knowledgeable, creative encouragement is a must for new and experienced business owners alike.

Andy has the ability to cut through the noise and to hone in on the real issues affecting my agency. Partnering with Andy has enabled me to establish greater clarity around my role and responsibilities and in turn to develop a more successful agency.
