Andrew gives a compelling historical narrative, places it in today’s context and asks audiences to think: How do I maximise opportunities and avoid risk in today’s world. He finishes with the unusual call that today is the most exciting time to be alive in human history.
  • Corporate Leadership & Finance
    Andrew brings a unique knowledge set as a provider of capital through the superannuation fund he manages and the US based bank he is a director of, combined with his part experiences as an aid and community worker. He like few others, is well placed to chart a course through the delicate path of profitability and licence to operate. The world of finance is changing. Increased transparency both by community advocacy groups and the providers of capital put more and more pressure on companies to understand and adjust their business practices for greater external expectations around community behaviour and social risk. As an experienced business advisor, former member of Shared Value leadership council at Harvard University, a Visiting Professor at Kings College London and a provider of capital, Andrew can give direction to companies on how to maximise both community performance and profitability.

Andrew MacLeod came to Wollongong to speak for me at the Students 4 Students Leadership Conference. Andrew was very easy to deal with and was excellent in the follow up for the event. Andrew sat on a Q&A panel at my event, and was provocative and engaging on what he said. Following on from his talk, Andrew, spent a lot of time mingling with students and answering all of their questions. I have now collated the feedback about the Conference, and many people have listed him as their favourite speaker of the Conference. Andrew is definitely a speaker that I would look at getting back to speak and comes recommended in the highest possible terms.
