Andy Cope describes himself as a "professional trainer, qualified teacher, author and learning junkie". He is currently doing a Doctorate at the University of Loughborough... investigating the science of happiness and positivity.
He founded 'Art of Brilliance' in 2004. His aim, to blaze a new trail – one that was non-academic, totally rooted in the real world and that would make a massive and immediate impact on individuals and organisations. The business is growing rapidly and Andy has chosen to work with a small group of like-minded trainers, specifically chosen because of their desire to make a difference.
Andy has a passion for motivation and positive psychology and is trying to influence people to think differently. He has delivered 'The Art of Being Brilliant' to rave reviews in businesses and schools throughout the UK, Middle East and Southern Africa. "The focus is on translating some of the highbrow academia into clear, simple messages that everyone can take on board."
'Being Brilliant', published in December 2006, is Andy's attempt to translate some of the themes of his workshops into a very simple story. "Delegates like the simplicity of the workshops, so the book is an extension of the messages. Hopefully I can reach a larger audience and more people will take the positive ideas on board. 'Being Brilliant' is ridiculously simple. I tried to write something that it would be idiotic to ignore."
Andy has also written ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’ for adults and ‘A Brilliant Life’ for teenagers. He is the best-selling author of the children’s ‘Spy Dog’ and 'Spy Pups' series (aimed at age seven plus). The series has sold almost a million copies worldwide.
