Andy Gibson

Founder & Director

Andy Gibson is a writer, entrepreneur and campaigner specialising in innovation and culture change.

 

He helps organisations innovate and change through his consultancy, Sociability; founded the “5-a-day for your mind” campaign, Mindapples; and co-founded the education web start-up, the School of Everything. His businesses have won awards from the Cabinet Office, the New Statesman and the UK Prime Minister, and Wired Magazine once named him the 78th most influential person in UK technology - although they changed their minds again the following year.

 

His most recent book, A Mind for Business, was published by Pearson in February 2015 and shares practical insights from psychology and neuroscience on making the most of your mind at work. His previous written works include Social by Social, the UK's first major guide to using social media for social good, and the influential local government innovation paper, Local by Social.

 

In the past decade he has advised many of the world's top organisations on innovation and business performance, including most of the major investment banks, News UK & Ireland, L'Oreal, PwC, the Wellcome Trust, the RSA and the NSPCC. He's also a former Trustee of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
