Entrepreneur and inspirational speaker on the value of putting the heart back into business

Founder of Thornton's Budgens and Heart in Business Ltd

Andrew Isaac Thornton is an entrepreneur, the founder of Thornton’s Budgens (a supermarket in North London) and the management advisors Heart in Business Limited. His life purpose is to put the heart back into business and encourage the shift from an obsession with profit to a business world where people and our planet are put first.

He applies these principles in Thornton’s Budgens, which he founded 10 years ago, and now shares this approach with others through Heart in Business Limited. He is an acclaimed speaker and seminar leader on the subject of leadership and is currently writing the book “ Putting the Heart back into Business”.

His aim – to build a movement and network of heartful businesses.

Our Comment

"In an increasingly unpredictable world where trust in big business is at an all time low, Andrew argues we need to replace short term profit-seeking with a focus on finding purpose in business. Only in finding this 'heart' can business leaders properly engage their workforce - and sustainable profits follow."
