Andy Blacknell's passion is helping leaders and organisations to engage their people. With a history degree from the University of Oxford, he started work as an economist co-authoring books on the European Union and management development. He then worked for a major UK retailer, Woolworths and saw first-hand how difficult it is to lead change.
As a partner at Willis Towers Watson, he has worked in the USA and UK on some of the world's largest mergers and measured the engagement of millions of employees. He runs his own consulting business, Blacknell Ventures.
He and his wife Alex have four children.
