Andrew Batty is an acclaimed author and motivational speaker. He currently oversees his own company, Competitive Greatness Training, which focuses on coaching, mentoring, motivating, and training people to tap into their true potential.

Previously, Andrew was a senior executive in a large organization. After fifteen years in that role, he was not satisfied that he was using all of his God-given talents and abilities. In operating his own business, he now feels he is doing what he was born to do.

Andrew is passionate about showing others the journey to do the same – to find their true calling and do what they love instead of simply going through the motions day in and day out. He now coaches and mentors people to live the life they were born for and loves every minute of it!

His diverse clientele includes business owners, business professionals, university and school students starting on their life journey, the unemployed who feel that there is no way forward, and people who have gone through the correctional services system and want a new start. He has also coached others at all levels of life to do the same. Andrew’s family includes a lovely wife and three great children, Melissa, Josh, and Georgia, and they live in Melbourne, Australia.
