Keep a good place in your mind

We believe that mental health and a performance mindset are equally as important as our Partners, Network and Ideas. In fact we believe it is the X Factor in a successful Finance Transformation. We want your Leaders, Change Agents and Teams to be professionally supported in this area by the very best and so we introduce you to ‘The Art of Being Brilliant!'

Dr Andy Cope

Dr Andy Cope is a qualified teacher, best-selling author, happiness expert and recovering academic.

Andy’s Loughborough University PhD was 12 years in the making and while he appreciates that his ‘Dr of Happiness’ label is terribly cheesy it does afford him an important media platform. In times of rising depression and an epidemic of anxiety, Andy believes there has never been a more appropriate time to raise the wellbeing agenda.

Andy is lucky enough to work with some very large businesses, including DHL, Kelloggs, Hewlett Packard, Astra Zeneca, Nationwide and UEFA. Recently, he has tailored his workshops to meet the needs of children and teachers and now delivers to audiences from age 8 upwards!

Andy’s books are frequently on the best-sellers list. ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’, ‘Shine’, ‘The Little Book of Emotional Intelligence’ and ‘Zest’ have all topped the personal development charts. ‘Happiness Route Map’ was nominated as The Independent’s best self-help book of 2018. In an attempt to bring the messages to a younger audience Andy has also penned ‘The Art of Being a Brilliant Teenager’ and ‘Diary of a Brilliant Kid’.

Andy is a sought-after keynote speaker and authority on employee engagement, wellbeing and human flourishing. He’s done numerous TV and radio appearances as well as being featured in The Telegraph, Daily Mail and Esquire.
