Andy is fascinated with communication and human behavior and he focuses on brain science in business - he is recognized as a leading expert in Switzerland on NeuroLeadership. His latest book "The Fox Factor - the Underlying Science of Personal Impact" focuses on how we process the image of people rather than the content and the unconscious processes in the mind that are influencing our decisions. Andy passionately believes that neuroscience will help us become more human through understanding the drives of human nature better. Using brain science gives visual clarity and concrete format to make understanding human behavior easier - Andy loves putting this into practical applications for business and strategies that you can do right now.

He spent his formative years as a language teacher before venturing into the corporate world and communcition training. He carved out a niche with senior executives in Switzerland before focusing more intensively on behavioral coaching. He has worked in recent years with an ever increasing focus on neuroscience and works in various international collaborations.

Andy always brings this back to a simple to understand human level that will make for better brains in business.
