Andrew Campbell

Consultant, coach, and entrepreneur in Oxford, United Kingdom

Initially, I trained in the British Civil Service & Oxford University where my work was published in 1974. I then took a 4-year sabbatical for a joint honours degree in Fine Art and History of Art 1/1.

In 1997 I began applying 'general creative process' in society & business for gaining actual mastery in 'complexity' - i.e., qualitative re-adjustments to emerging realities.

I have had a global influence, from Moscow & Taipei to British Columbia, London and San Francisco. I am an author & commissioning editor at Integral Review and its sister publication Integral Leadership Review.

My art has been exhibited at Oxford University, at The Royal College of Art, MOMA Oxford and other venues and galleries.

A contributor to the Presencing Institute project, for nine years collaborating with C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and W. Brian Arthur - Silicon Valley's economics 'guru'.

While midwife to REOS Partners in London, as it acrimoniously split from Generon I worked for a year with Mustafa Suleyman CBE, co-founder of Google's 'DeepMind' for 'general intelligence'

After leaving REOS I co-initiated a sustainability 'think tank' in France with a former head of sustainability at Royal Dutch Shell.

'Deep Creativity' - is the fruit of my work since 1970 - i.e., how we can learn to operate from the same source/dynamic that Nature does, healing what is broken at all levels, in both culture and nature.

In 1977 I chose not to pursue the acquisition of 'personal wealth', 'power positions' and owning more 'stuff'. As opportunities arise, I support people, small projects and charities by donating money, time and expertise. In Integral Accounting terms, I have donated around 3.4 million pounds.

I have worked with global corporates, SME's and individuals, - with teams from The House of Commons; acted as personal adviser to cabinet-level politicians with connections to the White House at key moments.

A lovely example of my mentoring work is Basu (left) a Nepalese street orphan from the age of about 5. He learned the 'action of ethics' under the compassionate eye of 'uncle' Kailash (top panel) - both are set on freeing children like those pictured from the scourge of 'modern slavery' and trafficking. Kailash was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

A highpoint in my career is a note from Ilya Prigogine - Al Gore's chief climate science adviser, saying I was on the right path in my understanding of 'increasing complexity' i.e., the fine messes we have gotten into.
