Andrew Campbell

Consultant, coach, and entrepreneur in Oxford, United Kingdom

Initially trained in the British Civil Service then publishing at Oxford University where my work was commissioned and published in 1974. Then I took a 4-year degree in Fine Art and History of Art.

In 1997 I began applying insights from the world of 'creative process' - usually as personal mastery in complex issues co-creating 'differences that make a difference,' i.e., qualitative re-adjustments to emerging new realities.

I have taught globally; from Taipei to British Columbia, London and San Francisco. Author and a commissioning editor at Integral Review and Integral Leadership Review.

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

Contributor to the original Presencing Institute research project I was a confidante to C. Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski, and Silicon Valley's chief economics 'guru' - W. Brian Arthur.

While midwife to REOS Partners in London as it split from Generon Consulting I worked for a year with Mustafa Suleyman CBE, co-founder of Google's 'DeepMind'. After leaving REOS I co-initiated a sustainability 'think tank' in the South of France with a former head of sustainability at Royal Dutch Shell,

I teach 'Deep Creativity' - i.e., how we can operate from the same sources/dynamics that nature does, rejoining what has been fragmented and broken.

In 1997 I chose not to pursue the acquisition of 'personal wealth', 'power positions' and owning 'stuff'.

When opportunities arise I support individuals and small charities, donating money, time and expertise. In Integral Accounting terms, I have donated around 3.4 million pounds - 'true value' is like life itself, priceless.

I have experience of working with global corporates, SME's and individuals, as well as teams from The House of Commons, acting as personal adviser to senior cabinet-level politicians and with some influence in The White House at key moments.

I have a lifetime to draw on. A lovely example is Basu ( left) a Nepalese street orphan from the age of 4. Now he works under the compassionate eyes of 'uncle' Kailash (top panel) - set on freeing children like those in the lower panels from 'modern slavery', Kailash was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014. Basu shared an interesting insight into that process, involving a former UK PM.

A highpoint in my professional career was Ilya Prigogine - Al Gore's chief adviser, saying I was on the right path in my understanding of 'increasing complexity' i.e., the messes we are in.
