Andy McCann is a Professor of psychology with an exercise in wellbeing and resilience. He is a human performance specialist, a Director of DNA Definitive and a Visiting Professor at Manchester Metropolitan University. With an exclusive international portfolio of clients, he is in demand to help develop high performance environments and to support elite teams, which he does through applied performance psychology and the development of evidence based resilience focused strategies.

Andy’s work has taken him to, and tested him in, many different industries and countries around the world. He works with political leaders; high net worth individuals and corporate business leaders; with world leading athletes and coaches (Olympic, Commonwealth and World Championship Level); the emergency services; the British armed forces and with not for profit and third sector organisations. Andy has co-written a series of acclaimed resilience that have been approved by the Royal Colleges of Physicians and Royal College of Nursing, and adopted by, among others; critical care practitioners, the police, the fire and rescue service, ambulance services, social services and lawyers. He has been commissioned by several organisations, including the National Association of Headteachers (NAHT), to develop Resilient Leadership Programmes; and by the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) to develop a professional standards course to address undermining and bullying behaviour.

Andy McCaan is involved in a range of research projects into stress and wellness, including collaboration with Professor Sir Cary Cooper and Professor Marc Jones. He is a Visiting Fellow at Staffordshire University Faculty of Health Sciences, School of Psychology Sport & Exercise; elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine; and, an Academic Associate at Cardiff Metropolitan University School of Sport. He is an Associate Lecturer in Leadership, Business and Work Based Learning on International Executive MBA programmes at a number of universities in England, Wales and France. Andy is also a member of the British Sleep Society, the professional organisation for medical, scientific and healthcare workers within sleep and sleep disorders. A former teacher, Andy is a Non Executive Director of the Welsh Rugby Players Association and a member of the FA Mental Health Consulting Group. Previously, Andy sat on the Sport Wales Advisory Group (for 4 years) and on the Welsh Advisory Committee for the Stroke Association (for 6 years). At home on the other hand, he gets outwitted on a daily basis by both his partner Anne, and Ronnie, the dog that owns them. “Andy has extraordinary motivational gifts and insight into the minds of people in competitive situations or under stress where successful performance is essential. He knows how to develop confidence in high performers and others and to help them retain the knowledge he imparts. He is one of the most gifted people in his profession of anyone I have met.” Baroness Tessa Jowell, Minister for the London 2012 Olympics “Andy has been a big part of the success of the teams he works with. But I know from my own experience that he is also terrific working with individuals dealing with high pressure situations. His skills and experience have proven to be transferable across many sectors.” Alastair Campbell, British journalist, broadcaster, political aide and author, Director of Communications and Strategy for Prime Minister Tony Blair “I honestly believe it's no coincidence that my success has been under the guidance and help of Andy.” Sam Warburton OBE, Wales and British & Irish Lions Rugby Captain P
