It was a very lovely keynote, inspiring and easy going. Some of them really appreciated the opportunity to have mindfulness practices as a part of the keynote and were able to relax and calm themselves. Andrew was very flexible with all the logistic and briefing preparation, and so nice and kind with our participants. Overall, it was a success! It was a pleasure to have him in our program Thank you again"
"Thank you SO much for facilitating today’s session! We thought you did a wonderful job and really appreciate all the time and effort you spent preparing for the session. It was a pleasure working with you and we hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future. Thanks again! Abbie"
"Andrew certainly provided us with a timely reminder that being alive to the suffering of others, should be part of workplace culture. This is especially important as we emerge from our ‘Covid Bunkers’ as Andrew calls them, and emerge blinking into the Sun of our new normal. I would heartily recommend Andrew as a speaker and hope, one day, that he will return to speak for our network once again!"
"Andrew McNeill gave a powerful and inspiring keynote address alongside a panel of business leaders at the launch of the MWC at HSBC's Canary Wharf headquarters in February 2020. This launched the creation of a paid member community. Andrew's keynote left the audience wanting to hear and learn more with many of them signing up to join the Community."
Andrew McNeill's 2023 biography
About Andrew McNeill
Andrew McNeill has spent 20 years in senior leadership, most recently consulting on a £7bn national programme. Throughout his career he has led large teams in high pressure environments.
He is also an accredited mindfulness teacher and brought these two worlds together in his book Organisational Mindfulness – a How-to Guide in 2019, which has sold in 4 continents. By integrating his leadership experience and insights from being a mindfulness teacher Andrew has developed a method to help leaders and their teams embed and implement techniques which improve performance, build psychological safety and support their own and their collective wellbeing.
Andrew set up Lines of Sight Consultancy in 2018 to be able to share these tools with other teams and leaders.
Andrew would like to see leadership change. With the multiple pressures our teams face, from climate change and becoming carbon neutral to the recession, he believes that organisations will only thrive if their leaders can guide with inclusion, compassion and awareness.
Andrew specialises in working with teams enabling them to connect better and listen to each other. He also works directly with leaders, helping them to thrive through the challenges and opportunities of leadership. His techniques have assisted teams and individuals navigate very real challenges and to communicate with honesty and kindness.
