My journey to this point has not been straightforward.
I’m Andrew Tollinton
Back in 2006 I was working as a finance director. Whilst I enjoyed the role I found myself looking at the business development team thinking ‘I can land bigger and better deals’. One day I decided to test my theory and I persuaded my boss to allow me to pitch for new business in my spare time. Working weekends and evenings I secured a six-figure deal and my life in pitching began.
