An engineer and award-winning investigative journalist, Andy’s spirit of adventure led to twelve years of heading up vehicle-based expeditions to remote part of Africa and the Sahara Desert until he was inspired to change the elements of his life that were unsustainable. He experimented with alternative ways of powering his overland journeys.
He has also driven a chocolate-powered lorry to Timbuktu and organised the ‘Grease to Greece’ rally for cars fuelled on restaurant scraps.
Andy’s entertaining talks explore how each experimental eco-adventure has taken him closer to understanding exactly what sustainability really means and ever more clues on how to achieve it.
Andy tailors each talk following a telephone briefing with the client.
Themes can include:
Being green (It’s not easy being green)
Reality of sustainability
Staying Motivated in Tough Times
Teamwork and engaging with Communities across Cultures
Travel & Transport
Science, technology & engineering
Andy’s expertise extends beyond environmental and sustainable issues and he can encourage meaningful debate and engage audiences on a broad range of current issues and themes. Contact us for more information.
