The world needs more people like Andy Griffiths. His work has taken him into brick kilns in India where he lead a team of freedom fighters rescuing people who had been subject to enforced slavery, and to the West Bank in Palestine where his organisation help run a program to create harmony and peace between Israelis and Palestinians through sport. But Andy started out his career in a very different way. Andy studied law and went on to become the Group Legal Director for ITV the UK’s biggest commercial TV broadcaster and production company. He went on to achieve what is the career pinnacle for any media lawyer, by becoming the General Counsel of the worlds largest independent TV production company, Endemol. But it was when he realised that the pursuit of profit was not fulfilling for him that he turned his attention to the not-for-profit sector. He talks about the challenges he faced in going from a successful corporate role as a lawyer to running an office in Chennai, India, for the International Justice Mission. We also talked about how to highlight the transferability of your skillset when you are looking to make any career change. But most inspiring of all, Andy shares some truly heart breaking stories about the people he and his teams have rescued from slavery and how those perpetrators of slavery and violence have been brought to account.
