For years I separated my life into professional and personal. Rarely would either cross into the other. Slowly but surely the professional side of my life took over. I willingly sacrificed parts of my life for my career and future without ever realising the damage it was causing.

Not any more.

My name is Andrew Salkeld.

I am a Chartered Accountant and member of the ICAEW. I started my career training at PwC and specialising in Corpoate Finance, working on mergers and acquisitions across the world.

Following my move into industry I focused on business intelligence, data and analytics. I worked diligently building reporting systems and tools to increase efficiency and provide timely information to allow leadership teams to make more responsive, data driven decisions.

After numerous industry positions I now find myself as Finance Director at a Leeds based tech company called dscvr, whilst also acting as a mentor and advisor to other start-up and scale-up companies.

I am also a Psychologist, positioning me as one of only a handful of people in the UK who holds a dual qualification as an accountant and psychologist. I help businesses and their people understand the impact of their financing and corporate structure upon their employees.

I hold degrees in Mathematics with PhysicsFinancial Mathematics and Psychology

I'm Andy.

I live with ADHD with depressive and anxious symptoms. I have been suicidal at three distinct points in my life. The person opposite may look like they've got it together but I really don't!

I shared my story with the world on World Mental Health Day 2018 through my keynote speech, Breaking the Stigma. I was asked to share this story more and more. During 2020, my story was published worldwide by Practical Inspiration Publishing in my first book, Life is a Four-Letter Word.

Deep down I am just a huge geek!

I love board games and computer games. My favourite board games are Tomorrow and Fog of Love. My favourite video game varies, but is currently either Crypt of the Necrodancer or Slay the Spire.

I'm a huge fan of music, particularly ska and pop punk. I have been slowly teaching myself more about it by using LSDJ on the GameBoy.

If you would like to know anything else about me, please feel free to ask.
