Words from Mac

As a Founder and author of the original ‘Beaker & Flint way’ to developing a business, I’m always asking the question “how can we do it better?”. You’ll often find me reaching into my bottomless treasure chest of ideas, searching for new ways of doing things. My purpose is to lead, inspire and create growth for people and their organisations.  

Considered the 'trusted advisor' by my colleagues and clients alike, I’m prepared for any situation. I have a knack for bridging the gap and cutting through the noise - it's no surprise they call me "the glue" around here. As a pioneer of business development, I'm always looking for ways I can apply my years of experience to mentor those around me. I’m passionate about “getting in the trenches” with people – I always find the best way to get them back on track.
