Andrew Campbell

Consultant, coach, and entrepreneur in Oxford, United Kingdom

After leaving Merton College Oxford I joined the Civil Service then back to Oxford University where my work was published in 1974. Aged 23 I chose not to pursue the acquisition of 'wealth', 'power positions' & owning more 'stuff' so I took a 4-year sabbatical for a degree in Fine Art and History of Art 1/1. 1980

In 1997 I began teaching creative process' offering sense-making and basic mastery in 'complexity' i.e., the qualitative adjustments in emerging & immerging realities.

My influence is global.

An author & editor at Integral Review and adviser/author at Integral Leadership Review.

My artwork has been exhibited at the University of Oxford, The Royal College of Art, MOMA Oxford, and other venues since 1977.

An original contributor to the Presencing Institute 'project', collaborating with co-founders C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Silicon Valley's economics 'guru' W. Brian Arthur.

While midwife to REOS Partners 1.0 London, as it acrimoniously split from Jaworski's Generon, I worked for over a year with a co-founder of Google's 'DeepMind' created for 'general intelligence'. I also co-initiated a sustainability 'think tank' in S.France with a former head of sustainability at Royal Dutch Shell. My experience with all these teams was toxicity.

'Deep Creativity' - is the fruit of my all work since 1977 - 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.

I have worked for global corporates, SME's and outsider individuals; with teams from The House of Commons & acting as a 'personal adviser' at Secretary of State level. My writing has brought connections to the White House in two administrations and at a key historical moment my words were used in an inaugural speech.

My mentoring work is exemplified by Basu (left,) a Nepalese street orphan from the age of about 5. He learned the 'action' of ethics under the compassionate care of 'uncle' Kailash Satyarthi (top panel) - both work freeing children, like those pictured, from the scourge of modern slavery and sex trafficking. Kailash was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

A high point in my career was a note from Ilya Prigogine, Nobel Laureate 1977, Al Gore's chief climate adviser, saying I was on the right path in my understanding of 'increasing complexity' i.e., "the fine messes we have gotten us into."
