Motivational Speaker, Executive Coach & Bestselling Author


Andrew Hill is a successful author and motivational speaker who has appeared before audiences throughout the United States and Canada.  His book, BE QUICK, BUT DON’T HURRY: Finding Success in the Teachings of a Lifetime, is now in its fifteenth printing. 

From January 1991 to April 1996, Andrew Hill served as president of CBS Productions in charge of development and production for all CBS owned entertainment programming.  During Mr. Hill’s presidency, CBS Productions became the network’s leading supplier of primetime programs.   In addition to increasing network advertising profits, these series returned more than $1.5 billion in foreign and domestic syndication income.

During his tenure at CBS Productions, Hill was responsible for some of the decade’s most successful primetime programming including TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL; DR. QUINN, MEDICINE WOMAN; WALKER, TEXAS RANGER; CAROLINE IN THE CITY; DAVE’S WORLD; and RESCUE 911. In fact, when the CBS lineup featured DR. QUINN, TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL, and WALKER on Saturday night, it was the first and only time in broadcasting history that one studio supplied an entire successful night of programming to any network.


In 1997 Hill was named president of Programming for the Channel One Network, the largest source of news and information for America’s teens. Hill left Channel One in July of 2000 to write BE QUICK, BUT DON’T HURRY: Finding Success in the Teachings of a Lifetime. The book was published by Simon and Schuster and was co-authored by John Wooden, the man voted by ESPN as the greatest coach of the 20th century and named by The Sporting News as the greatest coach of all time.

Hill’s educational credentials include a Master’s Degree in Education and an undergraduate degree in psychology, both from UCLA.  While at UCLA, he was a member of three consecutive N.C.A.A. championship basketball teams under the guidance of Coach Wooden.  In 2017, Andy was inducted into the Southern California Jewish Sports Hall of Fame.
