Andy has over 20 years of pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence in the areas of cor­po­rate law, entre­pre­neur­ship, busi­ness man­age­ment, process improve­ment, strate­gic plan­ning, and oper­a­tional excel­lence. He has led pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al devel­op­ment work­shops across Cana­da and the Unit­ed States, and is a skilled facil­i­ta­tor, author, and cer­ti­fied change man­age­ment prac­ti­tion­er. Andy is the cre­ator of The Whole PIE Busi­ness Man­age­ment Sys­tem™ designed to help small busi­ness own­ers reach high­er lev­els of prof­it, impact, and enjoy­ment in their busi­ness. Andy cre­at­ed the Whole PIE Sys­tem after observ­ing how many busi­ness­es have a miss­ing struc­ture between their high-lev­el strat­e­gy and their dai­ly oper­a­tions — result­ing in a cycle of inef­fi­cien­cy, frus­tra­tion, and unmet objec­tives. Andy was born and raised in Fred­er­ic­ton, New Brunswick, and after study­ing and work­ing across Cana­da for sev­er­al years, returned to Fred­er­ic­ton in 2008 with his wife, Shel­ley (also a busi­ness own­er), to raise their four chil­dren. Yes, that’s right…FOUR chil­dren! Who does that these days? Andy is an active vol­un­teer in the com­mu­ni­ty, cur­rent­ly serv­ing as Past Chair of the Fred­er­ic­ton Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion and as a mem­ber of the Gov­ern­ment Rela­tions Com­mit­tee of the Fred­er­ic­ton Cham­ber of Com­merce. He is also the founder of an annu­al event that has raised over $100,000 for the IWK Health Foundation.

The New "Triple Bottom Line" for Successful Small Businesses

Truly successful small businesses are profitable, they make a positive impact in their communities, and they are enjoyable for the owners and, ideally, for all team members of the business. Profit-Impact-Enjoyment is the new triple bottom line for small businesses. But how do you measure success in these areas? How do you set goals in each area, and how do you measure progress? How does each area affect the others?

This workshop will show you the benefits of this new triple bottom line approach, and it will give you practical tips and tools to create goals and implement strategies to increase the level of profit, impact, and enjoyment in your business.
