Andy Fieldhouse is a man with a mission: To help people get teamwork right. Andy is passionately interested in helping people and teams answer the fundamental question: ‘How can we become a strong, cohesive and successful team, while avoiding the pain that poor teamwork can bring along the way?'
After completing a degree in Asian History at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies, Andy spent the first fourteen years of his career in London, working in the wine trade, financial recruitment, and sports marketing and events, in a variety of roles. This foundation allowed Andy to observe, engage with and manage teams from the inside, figuring out what makes them tick.
By 2008, Andy had decided he wanted to turn his passion for and knowledge of teams and teamwork into a career. He joined Dubai-based training and team building company Biz Group, where he ran the team performance arm of the business. In late 2016, Andy set up The Team Space, using his experience to train and coach teams to help them to get teamwork right. He no longer thinks of his work as a job but instead as a mission or calling to empower teams to reach a state where the experience of working together is a happy and rewarding one and success comes as a result. In 2020 Andy published his first book, ‘Getting Teamwork Right’, in order to give people a useful ‘how to’ guide to the ins and outs of effective teamwork, which became a number 1 best seller on Amazon.
