Why Andrew Grant

  • Fully engaging interactive session on Creative Thinking and Innovation. Andrew can present to an audience that is wanting outcomes delivered engagingly in an intelligent way (not just entertainment, not a dry talk, and not childish games or gimmicks). Topics are presented in a unique way previously not experienced.
  • Intelligent in content, stimulating in method: We practice what we preach – and offer not only an intelligent session on the topic but one that is presented creativity. We can make the learning last and be applied back into the work space.
  • We help leaders and teams to reflect on and find real solutions to their business issues. Through inspirational keynotes, innovative simulations & engaging facilitation we create positive intervening experiences which break down barriers and provide unique leadership and team development opportunities and outcomes. We can integrate a keynote into other sessions to make a powerful learning experience.

Andrew Grant and his partner Gaia Grant (University of Sydney Business School researcher) have spent 30 years travelling the world to look at why is it that some societies, cultures and organisations seem to have raced ahead while others appear to have been left behind. They have also developed a validated Innovation Climate Indicator (iCLi) to assess the innovation readiness of both individuals and organizations, to ensure innovation can actually be implemented.

Andrew is a highly experienced and humorous presenter and facilitator, who will challenge leaders and their teams to thinking differently about innovation and creative thinking.

Andrew has a wealth of knowledge and experience working internationally, and is both globally minded and culturally fluent, resulting in sessions that are always relevant and sensitive to both the local mindset and diverse audiences. He has co-authored over 30 corporate educational resources, simulations and programs in total, which are used by Fortune 500 companies worldwide. Companies such as Visa use Tirian programs as an induction program for every new manager worldwide.

Andrew can present to an audience that is wanting outcomes delivered engagingly in an intelligent and interactive way (not just entertainment, not a dry talk, and not childish games or gimmicks). Topics are presented in a unique way previously not experienced, with a specialisation on fully engaging interactive sessions on creative thinking and innovation. Andrew practices what he preaches, and offers not only an intelligent session on the topic but one that is presented creativity.

Andrew consistently receives the highest rated feedback for his sessions due to his creative and educationally sound presentations methods.  Andrew’s significant success comes from the fact that he is not only able to talk intelligently and engagingly about the important elements of creative thinking and innovation, but it is easy to see in everything he does. As a result Andrew has been featured in a number of international media including BBC and ABC TV along with commercial TV, Reuters, Harvard Business review, Fast Company and the Wall St Journal.
