The Restorative MindsetTM
Create a life and workplace of hope and purpose.
Are you trying to build a team or organization where people thrive and live to their fullest potential? Where fulfillment is just as important as productivity?
I help leaders and teams...
leadership is personal.
Your culture and the way people behave are often a reflection of what’s coming from inside.
Creating an environment where people thrive starts at the top. When leaders shift how they think...
radical transformation happens.
hi. i’m andrew.
I spent the first ten years of my career climbing the corporate ladder. I thought success meant an impressive title, a corner office, a fancy car, and a house on the golf course.
I got all those things, but they didn’t make me happy.
So, I left the comfort of a steady job to create my own leadership development company. I thought I could prove I was a successful guy by helping companies lead big change initiatives.
And I was successful. I have some great case studies with impressive success metrics. (You can see those here.)
But I still didn’t feel fulfilled.
Despite the appearance of success on the outside, there was a void in me — a big hole in my heart and soul.
A lifetime of loss had led me to alleviate the pain by seeking approval from the outside world, but it was my inside world that needed to change.
I discovered The Restorative Mindset, and I used it to turn my life around.
Now I guide others to find inner peace, changing themselves and others from the inside out.
I have brought together 40 years of business leadership and the experience of transforming tragedy into triumph.
a more fulfilling future is possible.
It’s a pretty powerful combination, leading to a place beyond material success.
My clients meet their goals, but they also feel fulfilled and create environments where people thrive at work.
I’d love to help you get there.
“Andrew Bennett redefines the term ‘keynote speaker.’”

Magic has been a part of my life since I was seven years old. I’m a member of London’s Magic Circle and the founder of Magic on Purpose. It’s also a key part of my work with leaders, thanks to my mentor Ross Perot.
Ross's encouragement to use magic in my presentations helped me discover my unique ability to connect life-changing principles with magic in a way that elevated both. More than just a way to delight and engage audiences, it has been a powerful tool for helping them understand and remember my presentations long after the event is over.
“Andrew Bennett is one of the most inspiring, brilliant, and impactful speakers I have ever met. He understands the human experience, what it means to have hope and how to turn it into a daily practice. You want this speaker on speed dial.”
Award-winning filmmaker, TEDx Producer, and Executive Producer of Speakers Who Dare NYC
“I knew after the first ten minutes of Andrew’s remarks that we had found someone special. He received a standing ovation from our group, which is a rarity and a testament to the impact he made. I feel very fortunate that we could have someone of his quality and talent provide us with the keynote speech at our fall conference.”
Executive Director, Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA)
“Engaging Andrew in our ongoing leadership development efforts was a valuable investment in our leaders and our company.”
President and CEO, Paychex
Identify what you deeply desire to create in the world.
Restoration requires clarity. You’ll clarify how you want to help others and what you want your future to look like — knowing where you’re going and why is the foundation for a better life, serving as your North Star, guiding your actions and decisions, inspiring you to move forward with joy.
Eliminate what gets in the way.
Next, you’ll address your obstacles to restoration. Externally, you’ll identify and stop the activities that drain your valuable time and energy. Internally, you’ll become aware of your self-defeating, reactive thoughts and develop creative strategies for responding positively to stressful situations.
Build Strength from Adversity.
This final step is about finding the courage to heal what has been damaged — relationships, confidence, and even alignment with values. As you make and execute a plan for healing, you’ll feel more fulfilled and be able to create an environment where others thrive.
