Andrew Nicholson | Putting people first and connecting them to the mission

I’m excited to have Andrew Nicholson, CEO and founder of Osprey Flight Solutions, join the show. Osprey Flight Solutions is an organisation that is driving a quantum shift in the capabilities available to the aviation industry for security risk management.


Andrew spent 12 years in the Royal Navy and 6 years with UK Special Forces, which included operational tours in all major conflict regions. Leaving the military at the height of the Somali Piracy phenomenon, for 3 years Andrew led the maritime and oil and gas divisions for the largest provider of maritime security in the industry.  


Andrew moved to International SOS and Control Risks in July 2014 to head up the aviation security team. Realising that the industry’s requirement for risk management support had changed in the wake of the MH17 disaster, Andrew co-founded Osprey, which is now recognised across the industry as the leader in open-source risk management data, developing innovative tools to support all operators, no matter their size or resource, in conducting comprehensive and accurate risk management.


One of the many highlights in this episode is Andrew talking freely about his leadership approach. It’s an approach that is founded on a belief that each individual in his organisation is more important than the commercial success of the company – and how this panned out practically during the pandemic.


As listeners of the show, stay tuned right to the very end as two of my former guests – Dr Vikki Barnes and Carole Barnes – have provided an exclusive offer for you.
