Keynote Speaker Category: Sustainability,
Andrew Winston is a globally recognised expert on how companies can navigate and profit from humanity’s biggest environmental and social challenges. His message is of entertaining and practical optimism: the world’s challenges are great, but business has the tools, resources, and creativity to create a sustainable world.
In a unique and entertaining way, Winston describes the profound shift – the Big Pivot – that companies are making to navigate and profit from a volatile world. His talks provide crucial strategies for executives and managers ready to innovate and win in this new reality. With concrete advice and tactics, and stories from companies like BT, Diageo, Dow, Ford, Nike, Unilever, and Walmart, The Big Pivot provides a blueprint for creating more resilient, flexible, and profitable businesses.
Andrew believes that the way companies operate today cannot keep up with the rate of change in our physical world. Organisations that make the Big Pivot will find the only practical path forward in a volatile environment. The leaders will build resilient, innovative, flexible organisations that profit by creating a healthier, more sustainable, more profitable world.
As founder of Winston Eco-Strategies, Andrew’s views on strategy have been sought after by many of the world’s leading companies, including Boeing, HP, J&J, Kimberly-Clark, PepsiCo, PwC, and Unilever.
Andrew has written three business strategy books – Green to Gold, Green Recovery, and The Big Pivot. Green to Gold, was hailed by Inc. Magazine as one of the 30 books that all managers should own. Andrew’s newest book, The Big Pivot, explores how companies can thrive in a hotter, scarcer, more open world, and provides a new roadmap, helping executives create a more prosperous business, economy and world.
