195 Bold Decisions with Andrew Pain

How do you know when to pull the plug or persevere, when to play it safe or do something audacious or when to batten down the hatches or make bold decisions? Having experienced long term abuse in a former marriage, father of five, Andrew Pain is now a campaigner, charity trustee and advocate for victims of domestic violence. Shaped by his experiences and through to the other side happily remarried, Andrew has created a model to help people create boundaries, is raising awareness that domestic abuse is not a gender issue and is using his life lessons to help leadership and critical decision-making in business and to prevent burnout and procrastination.


“Do I go back to what I know? Do I batten down my hatches and just do what everyone would expect me to do? Or do I play bold and carry on and create a new life?”



Delivering executive coaching packages, leadership group programmes and keynote talks (online and in person), Andrew is a TEDx and approved Vistage speaker, delivering content-rich talks and programmes, sharing original and insightful strategies to inspire meaningful change.
