“Andrew’s personal journey from international consultancy advising the retail sector to putting his own money behind his beliefs through owning and running two Budgens supermarket franchises is inspiring. With a relaxed style he speaks authentically about how he has learned to manage and succeed with heart in business.” Oonagh Harpur of LoveIntegrityBusiness.com
“All to often speakers live in their heads and so their talks lack grounding in pragmatic realities. This is definitely not the case with Andrew Thornton. Andrew brings a wealth of hard earned, real world, commercially viable human experience to his speaking. But like Oscar Wilde laying in the gutter, he encourages us to look up at the stars with his uplifting stories of positive transformation in the workplace overflowing into his employees personal lives. Inspirational stuff!” Chris Paradox
“Andrew is one of those rare speakers who combines warmth and wit with practical and pioneering insight. He is at the vanguard of a paradigmatic transformation in business and beyond, and his profound work helps catalyse a shift afoot from fearful separateness towards courageous love.” Giles Hutchins, author of The Illusion of Separation
JUDY PIATKUS, CONSCIOUS CAFÉ
