Prior to his current role as Managing Director of The Working Knowledge Group, Andrew Hatcher spent 15 years working at Reuters, the global information provider. He started as a technical journalist in London but moved through a range of disciplines including operations and project management, software development and product management before moving to the US into the financial products markets. He worked extensively with the corporate Venture Capital Group at Reuters and then founded an internal business creation division. This eventually resulted in a migration to Singapore to manage one of the spinouts, a company that was eventually sold.

On his return to the UK he established a small management consultancy practice offering advice and practical help to companies wishing to start up new businesses from within and in 2004 McGraw Hill published his first book “Inventuring” which tackles the subject of corporate venturing. He then set up his own company, The Working Knowledge Group, which has expanded rapidly to becoming the best known and most successful training company in developing business strategy, start ups and innovation.
