Andy Gordon

Senior Innovation Coach

What do you do at &us?

I help teams to understand people, identify and creatively solve problems that matter, challenge core assumptions, shift mindsets and make change in their organisations that has positive impact.

What do you care about most in your work?

I love helping businesses to unearth their purpose and creatively execute on their vision & mission through Design & Innovation. Whether that results in new cultures, mindsets, capabilities, processes, supply chains, products or services… I love to help people challenge what’s not working today and reimagine what comes next.

What did you do prior to &us?

All sorts in the Design & Innovation space; I worked with inventors and start-ups to bring new ideas/ventures to life, partnered with numerous big brands to explore & design what comes next, started my own purpose-led Innovation & Business Design company and worked as part of PepsiCo’s Breakthrough Innovation team.

What do you do for fun outside of work?

Spend time with my wife and keeping my hands full with our increasingly mischievous 18-month-old daughter, decorating our old Victorian house. Where ever possible being under/on/in view of the ocean, dreaming up a business I can pitch on Dragons Den, exploring an unknown destination or, if the sun is shining, I love to aimlessly wander and people watch (in a non-creepy way?).

You might not know that I’ve flown a plane… solo. Well a glider (that counts right..)

  • Sharks & the ocean
  • The Better Business movement or New Economy (BCorps, Doughnut Economics, Net Positive, Regenerative Business)
  • A new place to explore or travel…
