AWD Development Solutions celebrates five years in business

Andrew Deighton, the owner of Derby-based AWD Development Solutions Ltd. is celebrating five years in business.

Andrew said “I set up AWD Development Solutions after a 26 year career at Rolls-Royce. It was a massive step into the unknown for me, but I knew that I’d regret it if I didn’t try it. I wanted to focus on the thing I really enjoy doing which is helping to develop people and teams so they can grow their businesses.

“I’ve learnt so much since starting my own business. I love the autonomy and freedom and the opportunity to work with and help a wide variety of other organisations and individuals.

“There are some real highs and lows when you run your own business, but the support of the Derby business community has been fantastic. I’d like to thank everyone who has helped and advised me on my journey so far, and those who continue to.

“One of my highs was recently publishing my ‘Exceptional Team Blueprint’ book. It’s something I’d wanted to do for a while and seeing it in print is a great feeling.


“I’m looking forward to seeing what my next five years in business will bring.”


The Exceptional Team Blueprint is a practical approach to building high performing teams and developing exceptional team members and leaders.
