Andy Swann is a human. He thinks about our relationship with ourselves, our work, each other and the organisations we align with. Through experimentation and seeing work or ‘the career’ as an ever-evolving adventure, his own work has developed to span different arenas and experiments.

After 12 months exploring work with The Work Project, Andy realised the personal nature of the journey and is preparing to launch a new exploration – How to Be a Human.


As Founder and Curator of All About People, Andy continues to grow a unique event that explores how when people thrive, organisations thrive too. As BDG architecture + design’s Change Maker, Andy develops workplace change approaches that connect organisations and people with their work and workplace, collaborating with major clients to implement his Discover, Imagine, Create method. He also delivers bespoke creative leadership experiences and events that unlock organisations and their teams through Simple Better Human.
