Prior to founding Embercombe in 1999 Mac led an organisation development consultancy for corporate executives operating internationally between 1989-2005. One of his company’s clients achieved spectacular success when they sold their business to Warren Buffet. By way of thanks for Mac’s part in assisting this success he was gifted the means to purchase Embercombe. Over a period of twenty years Mac was mentored and coached by a group of Native American teachers. During this training and ever since he has attempted to bring two worlds together – an ancient world view that emphasises relationship, interdependence, and reverence for life with the huge challenges and equally huge opportunities of the 21st Century.
Mac leads on The Journey and The Hearth, and contributes to many other Embercombe programmes and events. He is an international speaker and coach, with recent presentations and workshops including Orsted Hornsey Four Project, ARCO ‘22, Accenture, Ripples of Hope summit, COP 26, Sage-ing International, and various festivals including Boomtown, Medicine, and Menfest. Mac has spoken at four TEDx events.
He holds a Bachelor degree in Education, a Masters in Human Resource Development, and an Honorary Doctorate with the University of Plymouth. You can find out more about Mac’s work here.
