Andrew Winston is a globally recognized expert on how companies can navigate and profit from humanity’s biggest challenges. His views on strategy have been sought after by many of the world’s leading companies, including Boeing, HP, J&J, Kimberly-Clark, PepsiCo, PwC, and Unilever. Andrew's latest book, The Big Pivot has been selected among the "Best Business Books of 2014" by Strategy+Business magazine. His first book, Green to Gold, was the top selling green business title of the last decade and was included in Inc. Magazine’s all-time list of 30 books that every manager should own. He has spoken all over the world – in Europe, Russia, Brazil, the Middle East, and China – bringing his ideas to leadership meetings of the top executives of Fortune 500 companies, large industry conferences, and high-profile events like the World Innovation Forum and TED.

His latest book is "Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take," co-authored with Paul Polman, the legendary CEO who has done more than anyone to move business down the right path. They make the case that business should profit by fixing the world’s problems – including runaway climate change, vast inequality, and disappearing biodiversity – rather than by creating them.
