Putting The Heart Back Into Business with Andrew Thornton

A key premise of this show is that business can be a force for good. I am therefore always keen to interview fascinating guests who demonstrate the power of putting more heart and consciousness into the business world.

My guest this week, Andrew Thornton, is an entrepreneur, speaker, author, advisor and coach to business leaders who see that businesses can be a force for good in society. Along with his partner Eudora, he developed the heart way of doing business in his award-winning London supermarket Thornton’s Budgens. Together they founded Heart in Business, whose purpose is to ‘uncover the authentic leader in us all, trusting that profit will follow’.

Join us as we explore the lessons and learnings from Andrew’s experience and his book co-written with Eudora Pascall, ‘Putting The Heart Back Into Business – How to place people, planet, and purpose at the core of what you do’.
