International Speaker

Expert In Helping Men Transform Their Relationships, Overcoming Aversity And The Effects Of Fatherlessnees, Helping Men Take Back Control Of Their Narrative

My Story

André Ferguson is an international speaker, author, coach and an expert in overcoming adversity.

He’s also fun, dynamic, entertaining – and the no-stress speaker clients love to work with.

André went from a depressed 10-year-old boy to an emotionally unavailable young man, trying to survive on the streets of London. In spite of this, André refused to quit, and through sheer faith, self-discipline, drive, hard work and the influence of some amazing people; André has transformed his life into something beautiful.

He went from running from immigration to becoming the founder of a deaf organisation that went on to support over two hundred deaf children in London; his driving force being his daughter losing her hearing.

André has also set up “story of man” another organisation that moves in support of young men at risk, and again, this organisation has gone on to save numerous young men from prison, a life of crime, or even death.

André sits on London’s FA disability inclusion board, is now a qualified football coach, and was the winner of the “inclusion partner of the year” award in 2014, among many other successes. This is the astonishing true story of a man who continued to move from strength to strength, against all odds, and now he wants every man and woman out there to know that they can too.
