The former VP of Technology Research at Visa Europe, Andrew is a passionate technologist, innovator, and raconteur.

A regular commentator and mentor within the UK FinTech scene, his current primary activity is global scanning and scouting for TIPS – Technologies, Innovations, Patents and Start-ups behind the trends that are driving new business models and shaping consumer behaviour.

As an Innovation Catalyst, he works with both established organisations and start-ups across the world in order to help them envisage the range of possible futures fuelled, accelerated and enabled by technology, constantly repeating his mantra of “the story of the future is not yet written, don’t wait to read about it as history made by someone else – start writing your own story today!”.
