Andrew Mitchell is a successful interior designer based in Melbourne, Australia. Having run his business for almost 20 years, he is confident that he has made almost every mistake under the sun (and if he’s honest, still continues to make them!). He set up The Design Coach 2 years ago, born from a love of sharing his many years of industry experience and a passion for empowering designers with the tools to build a successful business. Having struggled with isolation and a heavy case of “Imposter Syndrome” in the early years of his business, Andrew is driven to ensure that designers take the necessary steps to learn the foundations of healthy self-care so that they experience success in all areas of their life, not just their work. In 2 short years, The Design Coach has grown to a worldwide community and plays host to a variety of exciting and educational events including Masterclasses with industry influencers, Design Lab sessions that dissect the design process and hugely successful retreats to Byron Bay on the north coast of NSW, Australia. www.thedesigncoach.com.au Facebook | @thedesigncoachaustralia Instagram | @thedesigncoach_au To raise money for victims of the bush fires that have devastated Australia: gf.me/u/xd6vii
