Mac Macartney is the founder of Embercombe, whose mission is ‘to inspire courageous action for a just, peaceful, and sustainable world’. Mac is an international speaker, writer, and coach, working with business, local community groups, activists, and people from all sections of society. For twenty years Mac was mentored by a group of Native Americans. This prolonged and challenging training has profoundly influenced his worldview and continues to inform all aspects of his work with organisations, children, families, and youth. For some years Mac has been researching the indigenous tribal history of Britain. Later this year he hopes to publish a book that will knit together some of the broken threads of our own story. The story of a people who were free before they ever became ‘civilised’.
