Andy Smith

UK Partner

Andy has a successful track record of engaging, developing and motivating volunteers and staff teams in charities and the education sector. With over 20 years’ experience in Students’ Unions and experience in SMEs and Charities Andy has worked in commercial teams, lead governance and democratic reform, and developed membership services. As a CEO of a students’ union (a registered charity and company) he rebuilt the governance, staff infrastructure, returned the organisation to a stable financial footing and developed its leadership team. This resulted in one of the biggest improvements out of all Students’ Unions in the National Student Survey.

Starting his career as Training and Development Manager, Andy has designed and delivered courses in personal skills development and training the trainer. It was here he further developed briefings and sessions on effective governance and student leadership. When time came to leave this role Andy worked in partnership as part of a business enterprise that designed training packs for SME and entrepreneurial start-ups, facilitating a structured review of their organisation and implement a plan for growth.

It is with this background of leadership and development in a wide range of contexts that Andy can deliver a bespoke solution to suit the needs of your organisation and the staff who can take it forward.
