DISRUPTIVE. YOUNG. PROFESSIONAL.
Andrew has spent over a decade of passionate work in health and safety, and a number of other areas of business. A bit loud, very energetic, engaging and restless – Andrew is pushing at the edges of current health and safety and business practice to improve the under-whelming status quo, to look at old problems in new ways and new problems few are looking at. An entrepreneur, resultant, coach, podcaster and speaker – his experience is real and his insights valuable.
His core message – people are the solution, not the problem!
POPULAR TOPICS TO CHOOSE FROM:
The Future of Health and Safety
Work health and safety as a concept hasn’t been around for that long, a few decades in any real sense. Yet, like many things in the world around us, the pace of change is increasingly dramatic. Just look around – the way work is organised, the type of work we do, the technology we use, an increasingly connected global market, an increasing middle-class in emerging nations…..
This presentation looks into the crystal ball, and take a futurist’s look at health and safety, to help you think about how you and your team will evolve to continue to be relevant and effective. Hint: There’s no assumption that health and safety will exist in the future….
The most important person in health and safety is....
Do you know who? Front-line supervisors and managers in my humble opinion! Yet these most important people often feel lost, alone and unsupported when it comes to health and safety – little acknowledgement from others of the day-to-day reality, battered and bruised when something goes wrong.
This presentation empowers and encourages these VIP’s (or MIP’s?!) to be effective leaders through great health and safety, irrespective of the industry, the organisation, the law or the market.
A more effective version of health and safety (and you!)
We are mostly stuck. As health and safety professionals, we’re going increasingly crazy – you know, doing the same things but expecting different results. We’ve been trained in the old ways, and we’re mostly surrounded by systems, organisations and law that holds us back from being more effective – even though there is plenty of evidence where the old ways are not effective.
This presentation is about what we have the most control over – ourselves. Take a look into your own professional and personal development, get insights on how other people have broken out of the mould to achieve greater effectiveness.
Marketing health and safety (properly!)
If you had to sell health and safety (that is, charge for everything you do/create/prescribe), would you be very successful?
Health and safety has a marketing problem. And it’s not just limited to tacky billboards/posters, squeezy toys during safety week and water bottles during wellness week. Most health and safety practice in business is still based in a compliance context – we do this because we are legally required to. What a terrible way to sell something.
This presentation looks at health and safety through the marketing lens – testing current approaches, showing you what good marketing actually looks like, and pokes you to ‘sell more’, ‘sell better’.
Safety Secrets for Small Business
Small (and medium) businesses have it tough. Those who survive do it against the odds, and are faced with no end of barriers to getting health and safety right. For most, it seems too hard, too complicated, too expensive. For some who try to improve, it’s often crushed by unreadable legislation, oodles of paperwork, and unrealistic expectations.
And there is plenty of snake oil being sold which (with the best of intentions) perpetuates the myth that health and safety is bad for business.
This session opens the curtains to reveal lesser known secrets about health and safety which will empower and encourage you, the small and medium business owner, to achieve health and safety which is practical, effective and helps you grow your business.

Podcast is radio-on-demand. It’s one of the fastest growing forms of media, with total listeners numbers DOUBLING since 2008, and total subscribers surpassing 1 BILLION in 2013.
So why should YOU create podcasts?

I was highly impressed with his creative thinking processes & ‘outside the square’ approach. He addresses everyday issues with a refreshingly honest and unique approach, and provides the tools to allow people to really make a positive difference in the workplace.
