He questioned, "Why is it that we define success in business through lists like the Fortune 500 that rank organizations based on revenue alone?"
Redefining success became his mission, leading Andrew to publish a bestselling book, become an in-demand speaker, and teach courses through the Trump Organization and the United Nations University for Peace.
To help redefine success in business, Andrew created GameChangers 500 to showcase the world’s top purpose-driven organizations using business as a force for good. Unlike lists like the Fortune 500, the GameChangers 500 ranks organizations based on their social and environmental impact and their ability to maximize benefit not just profit.
His research has led him to be featured in major media such as BBC World News, Forbes and Fast Company, speak at premier venues such as TEDx and the Social Entrepreneurship World Forum, and work with model GameChangers like Zappos.com as well as consult corporations aspiring to join this "new game" of business, such as Kraft Foods and Thomson Reuters.
Andrew’s progress in helping define a new “For-Benefit” model of business earned him a seat on the Advisory Council for the Fourth Sector Mapping Initiative, alongside policy makers from the US government and researchers from institutions like Harvard. Together they are helping formalize the For-Benefit legal model to join the existing three sectors—for-profit, non-profit and government.
When he’s not helping change the game of business, Andrew is helping redefine how we measure our success as individuals through Version2.me. Version2 is a personal development program that helps people become empowered despite circumstance and lead with empathy rather than ego—the traits of a true GameChanger.
