About Andrew Outhwaite
I’m Managing Director of For Blue, at the centre for blue economy innovation in Western Australia. I previously grew social ventures leading systemic change in WA and UK including: Meshpoints, StartupWA, Pollinators Inc, Goodness Festival and Spark Challenge.
My experience as a leader and innovator are complemented by training, qualifications and research combining rigorous scientific inquiry and care for human development.
Pre-COVID I worked in regional Western Australia, Scandinavia, UK, Asia, the USA and Canada as a researcher, facilitator and consultant, including attracting more than $20 million in funding and investment to my client's ventures.
Banks, schools, governments, sector-specific advocacy and sporting groups have trusted me to guide their strategy and governance and strategy as Director and Chair.
I have an enduring affection for silence and emptiness, including in the ocean, on bikes and especially when shared with others, interspersed with reckless laughter, in wild places.
