The Green Field

About Us

The green field is the company wrapper under which Andrew Thomas, along with his associates, operates his coaching, training and strategic consulting practice. Based in Wilmslow, Cheshire Andrew has over twenty-five years of marketing agency experience and established one of Manchester’s first digital agencies at McCann in 1999. He is an established and experienced coach, trainer and consultant in the digital sector and has significant experience working with high-growth SMEs through Winning Pitch’s High Growth and Growth Accelerator Programmes. He has also worked with four cohorts on MMU’s Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme as a Programme Tutor and is a leading trainer with Econsultancy.

So if you are fresh out of school, an apprenticeship or university looking for that first break in the industry, right through to facing the loneliest job in the world  - managing director of an SME – talk to us and we might be able to help.

Our services include digital transformation and strategic consultancy; coaching and mentoring; the development of soft and commercial skills and training – although we don’t particularly like the word training. We prefer learning. It puts the onus on our clients to reflect and develop, rather than us to instruct. We are particularly keen on harnessing behavioural styles and their role in communication, leadership, management and business development.

Andrew has a Post Graduate Diploma in Executive Coaching and Leadership Mentoring (PG Dip) and is a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management (FinstLM). He is also a qualified Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®), FIRO-B® and DiSC® practitioner.

Andrew’s passion is road cycling and has recently established a new business Northern Albion Ltd identifying, developing and distributing innovative cycling products.
