Andy brings extensive international experience in leading, understanding and facilitating democratic innovation, digital policy, citizen engagement, strategic transformation and startups. He finds innovative ways to make democracy work better for all of us.
He's a well-known writer and speaker, so if you want someone to talk candidly about open government, open parliaments, civic media and digital campaigning get in touch.
