    Andy Gurnett's Profile
    Andy has worked in learning and development in Singapore and the region for over nineteen years. He ran the British Council’s Professional Development Centre for several years and, prior to setting up The Right Angle, spent two years as a Deputy Director working for the Singapore Government’s Institute for Adult Learning. Andy has trained thousands of people in a range of topics over the years and has developed a very clear understanding of what people and organisations need to make their learning successful. 

    On the subject of innovation, in the last few years he has worked with organisations such as Mendaki SENSE, SCG, Black and Veatch, TUV SUD PSB, the Singapore Government, and YKK.

    Andy has a degree in Electronics from the University of Keele in the UK, a post-graduate certificate and diploma in adult learning, and a number of practitioner qualifications in learning tools for team and leadership development. He is a professional grade member of the Adult Educators’ Network, Singapore.

    When not busy helping his clients, Andy can be found roaming the city taking photographs. He is a keen abstract photographer and in 2010 shared his ideas on creativity in photography at a TEDx Singapore event. In 2012 he held his first exhibition called ‘Accidental Art’ and has since exhibited several more times.

    Andy can also juggle balls, clubs, knives and flaming torches. He was co-organiser of the British Juggling Convention in 1993 and still believes he can teach anyone to juggle in 10 minutes.
