Andy Stuart Start Something Lead - Pathways

Andy joined Real Ideas in June 2017 as a Consultant to help social enterprises in Cornwall find their feet and get trading. He has a very broad professional career spanning some 15 years in the UK including time spent in the banking and hospitality sectors.

Since moving to Cornwall from Bath in 2007, he has loved his time here. In fact it is almost as awesome a place to live as his native New Zealand. The day to day experience of working in a company as diverse and energetic as Real Ideas, has been a wonderful chance to reinvigorate his own career and he looks forward to using a wide range of experience to help develop entrepreneurs in Cornwall through the Engine Room programme.

If you have an idea you want to be your own boss and change the world at the same time, he would be only too happy to have a chat over a flat white.
