Andy Horsnell Consulting (external website)
Andy has worked for over three decades to help com­mu­ni­ty-based enter­pris­es be more impact­ful and finan­i­cal­ly sus­tain­able. He has worked with 100s of non­prof­its — large and small, rur­al and urban, in all sec­tors ‒ through­out North Amer­i­ca and abroad. He can help his clients work through the full enter­prise devel­op­ment process — from assess­ing readi­ness, to defin­ing goals, iden­ti­fy­ing and val­i­dat­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties, busi­ness mod­el­ling and plan­ning, secur­ing financ­ing, man­ag­ing imple­men­ta­tion, and beyond. Andy is a skilled facil­i­ta­tor and train­er, with cer­tifi­cates from Aca­dia Uni­ver­si­ty and Hol­land Col­lege, and he has exten­sive expe­ri­ence with peer-to-peer learn­ing. As a vol­un­teer, Andy cur­rent­ly serves as the vice-chair of the Social Enter­prise Coun­cil of Cana­da, is a found­ing direc­tor of the Social Enter­prise Net­work of Nova Sco­tia, and served as the chair of the Cen­tre for Local Pros­per­i­ty. When he’s not doing con­sult­ing and train­ing, Andy works with his part­ner SJ on their per­ma­cul­ture home­stead in beau­ti­ful Kempt Shore, Nova Scotia.
