Andrew North

Andrew was born and raised in Vancouver, BC. He attended UBC and earned a management degree from BCIT. Andrew and his wife Laura were married in 1989 and have two children – Amy and Daniel. Andrew is an avid sports fan and has a particular passion for hockey, golf, and beach volleyball. Andrew also enjoys gardening and home renovation projects.

During university, Andrew launched Student Lawn Cutting Ltd. Andrew and his team had over 260 regular accounts and in 1991 he sold that company and moved on to sell residential real estate with Royal LePage and Sutton Group. In 1998, Andrew wanted a new challenge and joined IBM as manager of IT Support. He has enjoyed numerous roles since then and currently works on IBM's corporate webcast team as Account Director. Andrew's most recent business endeavor has been to incorporate Sasamat Sports and apply for a patent on a product he invented called Skaterbuns – padding for children learning how to skate, ski, or snowboard.

Ten years after Laura completed the CTI certification program and launched her coaching business, Andrew knew he wanted to become a certified coach. Andrew realized that the skills she learned in coaching were incredibly valuable and he wanted to be able to bring those same skills to his parenting, career, and coaching his son and daughter's hockey and soccer teams.

Andrew is drawn to coaching because it helps people discover or confirm what is really important to them, then helps them commit to live their life in a way that is in alignment with their passions, values, and aspirations.
