What are leading business game changers doing to sustain their social mission and purpose for good?
For more than a decade Andrew has been uniting the Game Changers of our time to evolve economics and address the systemic challenges we face.
In 2010 Andrew set out on a mission to showcase a new standard of success in business, which led to the publication of GameChangers 500, a ranking of the world's top mission-driven businesses. Through this extensive research initiative, Andrew became a sought-after expert in what differentiates high-performing purpose-driven organizations. He was featured in news media around the world, and earned a seat on an advisory council guiding federal legislation within the U.S. government.
Purpose-driven pioneers like Patagonia, creators of tribe-like cultures such as Zappos, and cause champions like TOMS are among the organizations Andrew has studied and worked with through his journey. He has also supported century old corporations such as Kraft Foods in learning how to lead with purpose and has been referred to as a “purpose sherpa” for executives at large corporations.
By 2016 Andrew had witnessed many of the organizations he had praised as "best in the world" slip back into traditional profit-driven behavior. Using Game Theory as a guide, Andrew began extensively exploring what it takes to truly "change the game", recognizing that behaviors in business are primarily driven by what we measure and how we motivate. His latest research is focused on evolving economics from win-lose to win-for-all outcomes.
He serves as an Entrepreneur in Residence Emeritus at UC San Diego, is on the board of the Pachamama Alliance, and addresses a diversity of audiences including students at the United Nations University for Peace, CEO’s of Asia’s largest banks, government officials in the U.A.E, and everything in between.
