Andy Law, author, marketer and consultant in business creativity, is widely recognised as one of the UK’s foremost practitioners of breakthrough business thinking. An international speaker of high regard, Andy has, over the years, shared the podium with the likes of Mikhail Gorbacev, President Clinton, Bono and the astronaut Buzz Aldrin (but not all at the same time).
Andy read Classics at the University of Bristol and worked briefly in commodities trading before beginning his advertising career in 1978.
In 1988 he became the youngest-ever board director at the famous British ad agency Collet Dickenson Pearce, working on brands like Hamlet Cigars and Range Rover.
In 1992 he became UK CEO of the iconoclastic West Coast Ad Agency Chiat/Day and chaired the “think tank” which was formed to make recommendations on how Chiat/Day should change to take advantage of future developments such as the Internet and social and environment impacts.
Andy founded the radical co-owned communications company St. Luke’s in 1995 and two years later the agency was voted Agency of the Year.
In 2005 Andy founded the global communications consultancy, The Law Firm. From London Andy runs change management programmes worldwide.
Andy is now a director of Parity Group plc and Executive Chairman of its SuperCommunications Ltd. Division.

After a busy two days featuring 20 speakers, Andy Law took to the stage as the penultimate speaker at Silicon Beach. He was brilliant. Interesting, insightful and informative and though there were no slides, he spoke eloquently for 25 minutes. Throughout his talk you could’ve heard a pin-drop. The entire audience was hanging on his every word. I would invite him back in an instant.

Andy Law, Chairman of the strategic business innovation consultancy Fearlessly Frank and one-time founding partner of the award-winning independent creative agency St Luke’s, visited Silicon Beach 2013 and treated the audience to a sneak peek of the theories that form the basis of his latest book, Implosion. Fascinating stuff.
