Andrew’s passion is to serve as many business owners to help them lead a better-balanced life and run successful businesses.
From an early age he learnt the importance of a system being a musician, he joined the British Army where he served as a musician for 5 years.
Following his military grounding he left the army to pursue a 20+ year career in Sales and Sales Leadership working with Entrepreneurial Silicon Valley and North American start-ups to establish and scale them in Europe, during this time he experienced the highs and lows of scale ups, scale downs, acquisitions and exits.
He attributes his success to using and mastering proven systems and methodologies to help stay ahead of the competition.
After 20 years of high performance and running high performing teams Andrew wanted to use his experience and to have a better work life balance with his family so he started his consulting business Commercial Optimisation Ltd in 2017.
In 2018 he recommended the Traction book following being introduced to EOS back in 2012 himself to one of his customers, they started to use EOS and this became the light bulb moment and he made the switch to a full time Professional EOS Implementer.
We have been working with Andy for over six months now and he has made a fantastic contribution to our business performance. EOS Traction is a great system for understanding what is going well and, not so well, in your business so you can focus on the key issues that are slowing down your growth. Andy is a fantastic facilitator of EOS Traction, he is well prepared for all of our sessions, has a great understanding of the traction process and a wide range of business common sense!
