I had the pleasure of being invited to Andy and Lee’s Career GPS beta group, and although I'd heard good things about Andy and his coaching, I didn't think it was going to be for me, and I'm glad to say just how wrong I was! Andy & Lee have put together an incredible course that any career professional will get mountains of value from. Although being friendly and kind, Andy nor Lee won't hesitate to ask the sorts of the questions that you may not want to hear the answer from, but ultimately will help you on your journey. Big thanks to you guys for inviting on the journey and if you have the pleasure to work with Forward Thinking, Stay open minded and be prepared to come of the session a new person.

Hi Andy, Just wanted to say a big thank you for teaching us for the past few weeks! I’ve learned so much over these sessions, and incorporating the strategies you’ve given us (especially the ones where you break down huge goals into smaller ones and the one in Step 5 where we consider the impact achieving these goals will have on our family & the world, that was really motivating) has helped me a lot even in my daily life too. I hope things are going well for your new health GPS courses, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for the world in the future 🙂 Thank you for being our sherpa guide! Best, Nina (Innovator International team #1)

I recently signed up for Andy's Success GPS 6 week course through the Boost scheme and I have to say it was one of the best things I have done in my business. Napoleon Hill said we should begin with the end in mind. Andy's course helps you to define the end you're looking for, then plan effectively on how you will get there. Breaking everything down into simple steps and achievable objectives that brings clarity to the often complex and confusing concept of running a business. I highly recommend Success GPS to anyone in business, but especially those just starting out or struggling to drive their business forward.
Andy is an experienced and insightful person; I worked with Andy on a Lancashire Boost funded programme. We went through Andy's highly recommended GPS Success programme, which I used to help me shape up the work needed for a Tech Startup I have been working developing. Andy's support has been significant for me and my future, and I cannot recommend GPS Success more highly, Andy has become my own "Sherpa" helping my navigate to the top of the mountain.
Where do I start! So for me when setting up my business it was important to create a support network of people who I could bounce ideas off, get great advice and generally point me in the right direction when I was a little lost! Its important to me to align myself with individuals who have vast experience and who have already walked the routes I hope to, in order to be successful. Andy came recommended to me and immediately I was blown away by his energy, his warm friendly approach and his overall knowledge! He is genuinely one of the nicest people you could meet, so to have the opportunity to work with Andy was something I was not going to walk away from, specially when you take in to consideration his knowledge and experience. I was fortunate enough to receive support from BOOST Lancashire which enabled me to take a seat on the Success GPS 6 Week Course, and I have to say its made a huge impact to me and ultimately my business. The course was done remotely, alongside a great bunch of like minded individuals and who I have kept in contact with, we all help one another and follow each others success. The course material itself goes right back to your Why! Why are you in business? What is your destination? The content taps in to the emotional side of business, at the start so that you can then build a plan to get to your destination, and it is all planned out over a 10 year period, and broken down in to 1, 3, 5 and 10 year targets! Andy helps you so much and uses his own knowledge and experience which he has helped over 300 businesses with, he calls himself the 'Sherpa Guide' and he certainly lives up to it! He shows you the way! He shows you not what to do, and where you can make some quick wins, to really make a difference to your business. Honestly, in a world where business coaches are ten a penny, you need someone who gets it! Who does what it says on the tin! Andy is that! Get yourself booked on the Success GPS course and tap in to what Andy has to offer, I promise you, you will not be disappointed! Moving forward I now regard Andy as a friend, someone I can rely on, who I can call upon and who is one of the good ones in life! Thanks Andy, you're a top man and I will look forward to that coffee soon!
Andy is an exemplary professional coach. He exhibited a unique sense of interest in each individual and his insights and direction were always on target. I've always been very sceptical about coaching, perhaps since I am not keen on the 'forced fun' approach to learning but Andy's method was on point. Enthusiastic but tempered enough to effectively draw people in - demonstrative with his enviable ability to effectively 'read a room' and connect with people on their level. Some of the learnings were on my 'to-do list' but Andy has taught me how to attack each with vigour as well as identify the most proven methods to apply to each task. Plus he's made me much more aware of the financials and scalable targets that can be broken down into manageable chunks. I felt very supported and championed in the attainment of my goals throughout and actually found myself looking forward to each session. The course will no doubt prove to be a vital resource to me and I look forward to our continuing relationship.

Just completed Andy’s Success GPS Course and it has been fantastic. It’s provided me with a clear strategic long term vision for my business along with steps on how to make the ‘dream’ a reality! It’s given me focus, discipline and accountability to take time and work on my goals and provided me with the realisation on how easily these are achievable with the right processes and mindset. Thanks Andy!

Having started a new business in the last few months, I recently completed Andy's Success GPS course. Despite already having a detailed business plan for my business, the course gave me and my business some real focus on achieving my short and long term goals. Andy's enthusiasm is infectious and I would recommend this course to business owners, whether starting out or if they have been in business for years. Andy was always contactable and available for support and guidance throughout the course. I have no hesitation in recommending Success GPS to any business owner out there!

As a Owner of a 3 well established businesses and a Property Investor, COVID19 created mixed emotions! Some worrying but mostly being excitement of the business challenges ahead. Obviously this is an absolute health crisis and I don’t want anyone to think I’m overlooking that! Like everyone, I am worried for the health of family and friends! But we decided to use the time wisely and look at where we are in our business and where we want to go! I am a believer in things happen for a reason and I started chatting with Andy Henderson from Forward Thinking who offers the Business Sherpa Guide! I speak for me and my co-directors when I say it is the best thing we have ever done for our business. Analysing where we are, where we are going and EXACTLY how we are going to do it! It was such a refreshing new way of looking at things! We are well on the way to implementing improved strategies and the results are already happening! The future is bright if you plan for it! Thanks Andy from The Straight talking: Sustainable Design and Building Energy People! Looking forward to that beer! #positivity #constructionindustry #propertyinvestment #recruiting #developments
I have recently finished my online course with Andy, and I couldn't be more excited about my future. I found it hard to believe that at the end of 6 weeks I would have a blue print to success. Andy has pulled the rabbit out of the hat! He has constructed a process that helps you brain dump; facts, emotions and creative thinking. All this focused, written information ends up in an easy bitesize, day by day, week by week task list that is SO achievable. The lessons are backed up with enthusiasm, passion, great anecdotes and tutorials. It still seems incredible to me that all along I, and the other great forward thinkers I had the pleasure of working with, had the answers all along! Thank you to everyone at Success GPS for helping me to map out the future I want for me and my family.
Andy's Success GPS programme has left me with a cast iron belief that the success of my business is inevitable. I wasn't necessarily lacking in confidence before going through the programme, but I definitely wanted to test my Business Plan and firm up on some of the detail within it. The peace of mind I've ended up with is absolutely priceless! The programme starts by looking at where you are now before moving onto where you want to get to and, crucially, why. With the destination established, Andy walks you through a process to effectively reverse-engineer your journey, which takes you right under the bonnet of your own business. The result is a step-by-step plan - a map - to follow and track your progress. Knowing every single day that you're on the right path makes every day a win, no matter what it throws at you. The process is as simple as it is genius and I think therein lies the magic! It's my pleasure to highly recommend Andy and his Success GPS programme. Oh, and remember, you're just one step away!
I started my business in March this year and Initially I was slightly sceptical, I was unsure about the programme as I thought I had a good plan, and wasn’t convinced that this was for me. That was until I started the programme, I’m over half way through and the whole experience has been fantastic, Andy has helped me understand more about moving forward with my business, how to approach my ideal customers and how to plan for the future. The group members have been nothing but supportive throughout and Andy has been there calling us up and messaging us helping and supporting along the way. I could not recommend this programme enough.
What a day yesterday with my business coach and friend Andrew Henderson. We did some amazing work that helped me clarify my vision, purpose and business goals for the next 3 years! I cannot recommend this man enough! before doing his #SuccessGPS program I was going through the motions every day and not seeing the results I dreamt of... Now I am on a clear journey towards some big goals that I have wanted to achieve for a link time!

Within my position as a senior leader, in many companies, I have spent many hours and days in “Strategy”, “Goal Setting” and “Mission statement” meetings. In my entire career I have never encountered a programme that draws out as many ideas, goals and ideas as I have with Andrew. Andrews mixture of encouragement, experience and dedication to helping businesses, without doubt, provides the most clarity and direction that I have ever encountered.”

Andrews energy and positivity is infectious, he has a fantastic ability of extracting ideas and creating clarity. The ideas were there already there of course, but have never been fully realised. The Affilius team have always had a strong vision, but until spending time with Andrew and his Success GPS Program, had no real idea of how far we could take the business and how a dedication to taking things to a new level, to create really ambitious goals and capitalise on them and to supercharge the business to create 20 software platforms by 2020 It’s been amazing, we know exactly where we are going, how we are going to get there and who is coming along for the ride
Founder at Affilius
I have used the Success GPS system in two of the businesses I own. I love it. I was initially sceptical as I thought “just another goal setting program” but this program is more about the execution and even more importantly, the psychology of taking action and staying accountable. I grew one business 2.7X in revenues and 4.4X in profit using these principles. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to grow a business and getting total clarity on where you currently are and how you get to the next level.
Founder at Ninja Acquisitions
I started my own business in March 2018, I have been so busy & as soon as I met Andy knew he could help push me back on track as I’d taken the wrong junction, making it longer to get to my main focus point! After a few hours into his course last week the ‘North Star’ just shone...... and it’s given me a real focus on how to continue pushing my business forward! Highly recommended to anyone, whether you’ve been in business for 10yrs, 3yrs, 8mths or just starting. His courses can teach you all some very valuable lessons & life skills to push further, but most of all focus on what’s right & not to waste time on stuff that doesn’t belong to your journey. Thanks again Andy.

From the first time I met Andy I knew he could help. Andy is a very intelligent, humble and most importantly personable individual. Someone who will go that extra few yards to help wherever he can. I’m enjoying the GPS programme and if you need direction in your business or life get in touch with him, it will be the best decision you make
