Andrew Manley is an independent management consultant and business coach.
After an initial career in marketing, Andrew has worked for over twenty-five years on the transformation of businesses including growth plans, turnarounds, acquisitions, and divestments. He worked for both multinationals and in the central government before focussing increasingly on smaller and owner-managed businesses. He has consulted in energy, construction, IT and professional services companies including legal practices, HR consultancies, and design businesses.
Andrew trained initially as a research scientist, holds an MBA from London Business School and a Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Coaching from the University of London. He is an associate of Business Doctors, a network of over 50 UK based business professionals; he is a non-executive director of two privately-owned companies and member of a number of professional organisations.
Andrew’s approach to business development is to align the objectives of the business clearly with the wider ones of the owners and senior managers as the basis for ensuring success. His view is that good consultancy has to be implementable and he is personally committed to following through with his clients to make sure that plans once developed are put into action. In his own words “he does not just coach, he gets on the pitch”.
Andrew is based in central London but works with clients across the UK.
