In this interview:

I pose a few select questions to Andrew and get his views on the issues and challenges within Safety and Risk Management.

Questions include:

  1. You have been described as “someone who is very focused – from the moment you wake up”….what is it that motivates you (apart from swimming with sharks)?
  2. You spend a lot of time with leaders…who would you consider as the most influential, inspirational or motivating….perhaps all in in one?
  3. With “Future Leaders” in mind, people always talk about what makes great leaders but what 5 things do you consider as poor leadership?.
  4. Risk or Safety…which do you prefer if any and why?
  5. What 5 top tips would you offer to any risk and safety professionals, Generation X, Y and Z, for turbo charging their career?
  6. What’s the future for risk, safety and the digital media for increasing awareness and engagement?
