"Your talk was so energizing... you did a wonderful job balancing tangible facts, with action to be taken....with great humor along the way. Thanks again for such an inspiring message."

Todd Spaletto, President, The North Face

Andrew Winston is an accomplished, engaging speaker. He's given keynotes and moderated panel discussions in front of audiences of all types and sizes, from small meetings of the top executives at a corporation to large conference keynotes in front of thousands of people. Andrew relies on his real-world business experience and comfort on stage to bring a relaxed (and often humorous) style to his presentations on the overlap of business and environment. He has no boring 5-bullet-point slides and uses mainly visual images that grab the audience's interest.

Andrew tailors his examples and ideas to match the audience, but his starting point is a talk that lays out a new vision for business in a fundamentally changed world. He reviews the mega-challenges that are changing "business as usual", including extreme weather, resource constraints (which bring with them rising prices for nearly all inputs into the economy), and radical transparency enabled by new technologies. These challenges also offer unprecedented opportunities as multi-trillion-dollar markets are in play.

In a unique and entertaining way, Winston describes the profound shift – the Big Pivot – that companies are making to navigate and profit from a volatile world. His talks provide crucial strategies for executives and managers ready to innovate and win in this new reality. With concrete advice and tactics, and stories from companies like BT, Diageo, Dow, Ford, Nike, Unilever, and Walmart, The Big Pivot provides a blueprint for creating more resilient, flexible, and profitable businesses.

"Andrew has a preternatural ability to perform, please, and above all leave everyone cheering. His insight into the industry is incomparable..."

Jigar Shah, CEO, The Carbon War Room
