Andrew Pain


Andrew Pain is a TEDx / Keynote speaker, inspiring meaningful change and delivering practical strategies on critical aspects of leadership development, including; decision-making under pressure, burnout, effective delegation, time management and personal performance.

Andrew Pain’s journey to speaker and coaching began 15 years ago, when stuck in a violent and abusive marriage, with no ambitions of his own and a chronic worrier, he set about taking control of his life and transforming his future.

Now an accredited leadership coach and speaker, Andrew is serving business leaders, enabling people to get more done, but without getting busier or burnt out. Andrew helps clients to answer critical leadership questions like …

  • How do you deliver on your responsibilities and aspirations without sacrificing your most precious things, (like your health, family, and sanity)?
  • How do you confidently delegate, so the job gets done on time and to the standard you want?
  • How do you know when to pull the plug or persevere, and when to play it safe or do something audacious?

A member of the International Coaching Federation, Professional Speakers Association, and Institute of Directors, Andrew was a finalist last year in the Professional Speaker’s Association Speaker Factor and aside from his speaking and coaching work, he works closely with two charities, as a non-executive director for one and as the lead on several projects for another:

Walk the Walk – working with families in crisis where children are the perpetrators of domestic abuse and supporting male victims of domestic abuse.

NewStarts – supporting people in financial crisis, with 7-day emergency food parcels, money mentoring programmes, meaningful work placements, and free furniture.

Andrew is now a happily married Dad with 5 children.


Andrew Pain inspires change with insightful strategies, delivering fresh, content-rich talks, in his own down-to-earth and light-hearted style. Andrew has recently been delivering to; Lloyds Bank, The Institute of Directors, Association of Project Management, Chartered Institute of Management Accountants, schools and colleges (working with staff and sixth form level pupils), and charities/not-for-profits.

Andrew Pain delivers five, thought-provoking keynote sessions:

This talk is about equipping people with powerful decision-making strategies, by tackling 3 mind-bending and common dilemmas, which both business leaders and victims of domestic abuse will face, simply by the nature of the roles they undertake

2) Why burnout affects grafters and slackers and how to stop it. This talk is about equipping people to spot the signs of burnout so it can be prevented and/or minimised, using transformational techniques including, T.E.S.T, happy anchors, and the worry scale.

3) How to delegate so the job gets done on time and to the standard you want. This talk is about equipping people to create better outcomes when they delegate, including original delegation strategies; 6XR, C.R.I.M.E.S, and the 3 critical pillars of top-class delegators

4) How to master your speaking skills, so you inspire action, not apathy. This talk is about equipping people to make a huge impact when they speak, but without necessarily resorting to crazy antics, or trying to be someone they’re not!

5) Get more done, without getting busier or burnt out. This talk is about equipping people to a) understand the complexities of procrastination and how to beat it once and for all, b) master their time efficiency, with transformational time planning strategies)

We have worked with Matthew for many years and will continue to do so. His knowledge of the Speaker Market and ability to interpret our clients requirements is quite exceptional.

He is incredibly thorough in his approach and always goes that extra mile to ensure everything is exactly as required.

I am always happy working with Matthew, he has great credibility, he is very diverse in his ability to make things happen.
