Andrew McNeill

Andrew McNeill spent over 20 years in senior leadership, most recently as a Director in the UK Civil Service leading and assuring major projects and programmes. Andrew has come to the belief that leadership techniques must change to match today’s world of mindfulness, compassion and empathy.

He is also an accredited mindfulness teacher and brought these two worlds together in his book Organisational Mindfulness: a How-To Guide in 2019 which has sold in four continents. By integrating his experience in leadership and his teachings in mindfulness, Andrew has developed a method to help leaders and their teams embed mindfulness techniques in their organisation.

Currently, Andrew McNeill offers leadership training to a wide range of small and large organisations, helping individuals and teams improve their performance and their wellbeing.

Type Of Speaker


“Andrew McNeill had been highly recommended to me at Liberty HR Recruitment as a potential guest-speaker for our monthly HR Leaders’ Forums.  After chatting to Andrew and hearing what he had to say, it became apparent that our HR Leaders network really needed to hear from him! He spoke on the subject of ‘Compassion in  Leadership’ and he really didn’t disappoint. Andrew delivered his session with an easy style and it was full of engaging subject material. Kindness and compassion are always relevant, perhaps never more so than in our current situation whilst emerging from the Covid pandemic. Andrew ably demonstrated that there is nothing ‘soft’ about kindness.

Our appreciative audience made comments such as;

Just wanted to say thank you for inviting me to the forum today and for all the hard work that you and your team put into making the forum run so smoothly.  Andrew was so engaging and the topic is very close to my heart so I thoroughly enjoyed the session. 

Loved hearing from the inspirational Andrew McNeill and exploring the power of compassion in leadership. I am so looking forward to reading his book!

Andrew certainly provided us with a timely reminder that being alive to the suffering of others, should be part of workplace culture. This is especially important as we emerge from our ‘Covid Bunkers’ as Andrew calls them, and emerge blinking into the Sun of our new normal. I would heartily recommend Andrew as a speaker and hope, one day, that he will return to speak for our network once again!“

“Andrew McNeill gave a powerful and inspiring keynote address alongside a panel of business leaders at the launch of the MWC at HSBC’s Canary Wharf headquarters in February 2020. This launched the creation of a paid member community. Andrew’s keynote left the audience wanting to hear and learn more with many of them signing up to join the Community.

Since this launch, Andrew has been at the helm of hosting and facilitating our speaker events which have driven the success of the MWC to date. As well as speaking himself, Andrew has chaired the majority of our panel sessions with insight across all content areas, managing the flow of the conversations and Q&A elements with charisma, in-depth knowledge, compassion and diplomacy.
