Entrepreneurs who stand out.... Andrew Horder @TheBusyFool

A long-standing BlackStar member, Andrew has been in my network for almost 9 years and has been part of the many changes Ecademy has gone through in that time. The founder and driving source behind the popular 'Old School' BlackStar Days, Andrew embodies what the BlackStar philosophy is all about. He's also no stranger to sharing his skills and knowledge in his contributions to the Ecademy community as a whole - You can read and comment on Andrew's many valuable blogs here >

No stranger to being busy, Andrew used to be a busy fool - running about like a lunatic, trying to do everything at once, keeping all the plates spinning for all the different projects he was getting himself involved in. And getting nowhere very fast! He used that experience to develop a set of methods to bring clarity to his world, and to help him to get some traction in achieving the things that were really right for him. He set up The Busy Fool and now helps other business owners to focus on what's really important to them, and to find ways to help them get to their objectives using a combination of hard analysis tools and NLP coaching.

Andrew has always highlighted the importance of focus, and with a history of key account management has informed and enlightened me about the things that matter when dealing with clients. Add to that his support and help in organising and running BlackStar days for the benefit of the community he's shown through action that what you do changes what you get.

Andrew is currently learning to play his saxophones; his great ambition is to get a paying gig at Smollensky's on the Strand in London under his playing name of Brew Horber (a long story, which he's only willing to share over a beer). ;)

Andrew is another valuable addition to my #EcadOlympics team.

Entrepreneurs who stand out.... Andrew Horder @TheBusyFool

I have no idea how many times I have met Andrew and enjoyed his company and although it is not as many as some, I know that he is a great person to have in your network. He is really good at what he does and although I haven't worked with him as such (yet), I know that he was able to pinpoint various things that I was working on with a project and highlight how to focus on just the most important elements and actually achieve something. Everyone probably suffers from being the "Busy Fool" at one stage or another in their business life - I certainly have especially when I have been prevaricating about deciding what I want to be/do when I grow up. I have no doubt that from early start ups, growing businesses and ones seeking to improve performance, results and efficiency, that Andrew would be a good person to call on to sort things out. In fact I suspect that many of us could do with a regular stint with him along with an annual in-depth MOT overhaul to ensure that we haven't slipped back into any bad habits. I am looking forward to our next chat Andrew!!

Andrew is a great man, highly knowledgeable in so many aspects of business and always very willing to help and advise no matter how busy he might be. A serious contender for an Olympic gold in a number of Ecad "sports" - Entrepreneurship, Charisma, and being an all-round good guy to name but three. Someone with real depth of character who I trust implicitly. Martin is bang-on describing him as "a Gentleman and a Scholar". Cheers to Andrew!

I have to confess ... Andrew unwittingly brought a lump to my throat when he stepped up to the plate and helped our project to get vital aid to the Sahrawi refugee camps land mine hospital. I still vividly recall our first meeting, sitting down for a coffee in a crowded railway station cafe and sharing a tiny fraction of what we were aiming to do with the project. I remember the liberating and rare feeling of being really heard, which is a gift in itself. Andrew your gift is still impacting our work 5 years on. Thank you for your selfless contributions, your integrity and your commitment. You're a Gentleman and a Scholar and you set the bar high for everyone involved :-)

Andrew was a big help to me at our first 1:1 and helped me to work on a belief that had been holding me back. I have already recommended others to connect with him. Top shout, William :)
