Andrew Garner

 

Andrew Garner is a career mentor to a generation of high-profile international business chiefs. With his understanding of today’s harsh demands on leaders, he helps them navigate themselves and their companies through the turbulence that erupts when established maps and models no longer work. From global expansion to boardroom coups, the collapse of the financial system to digital disruption, career management has never been easy. But the post-Covid era of remote working in a destabilised global economy has made it a truly daunting challenge.

Andrew’s expertise evolved from a very successful early career. Having risen fast through Mars Inc. and on to director roles with Brooke Bond and Gallaher, he then joined executive search pioneers, Boyden, where, as Chairman and CEO, he helped the company expand into 40 countries. Later, he set up his own firm, Garner plc, subsequently purchasing Norman Broadbent plc. A highly respected leader and commentator on business and corporate innovation and culture he was credited by Charles Handy and Tom Peters as the inventor of modern theories of career development and has taught at some of the world’s foremost business schools.

Andrew Garner book cover - Your Career SatnavAndrew’s dynamic presentations draw on his experience of exposing inefficiency and delivering business results at the highest level. He is quick to expose stale or institutionalised thinking, and he will always encourage audiences to challenge themselves. His presentation subjects include:

Education

Leadership

Career management

Change and management innovation – the real meaning of innovation

Navigating through market turbulence and transformation

Developing and nurturing top talent

Diversity on FTSE company boards

What they definitely don’t teach you at business school

Over-reliance on screen-based data

Andrew Garner’s book, Smart Moves, proved to be a pioneering handbook on career management for high-achieving executives. In 2021, having been nudged by business chiefs and heads of MBA courses to revise it for a new audience in a very different business landscape, he wrote Your Career Satnav…Switch It On!
