Bio: Chris is a change maker, visionary and integral thinker who lives his life according to Einstein’s famous quote ‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them’. He strives to create new levels of thinking, acting and behaving with all of his clients, individual and organisational, knowing that ultimately this is the most effective way forward and the best way to bring about sustainable change in the world.
As well as being a consultant and coach, he is on the teaching staff of Integral Coaching Canada, one of the world’s most progressive coaching schools, where he leads classes of up to 24 students. He also works as a Collaborative Leadership Consultant for Rise Beyond and is the Leadership specialist at Luxury Hospitality Management.
Meditation is also a big part of Chris’s life and he spends 2-3 weeks a year on silent meditation retreats, deepening his own personal practice and learning new skills and techniques for teaching mindfulness in business. He became an Integral Zen Buddhist Priest in 2017.
Prior to his current career, Chris worked in the field of Catering Management, Catering Consultancy and as a Superyacht Chef, where for over 20 years he has been developing his own leadership skills, deepening his knowledge of organisational structures and delivering consistently high results in a fast paced and highly demanding industry. During his time in the Findhorn Community, he managed the kitchens there and strived to bring in a new level of professionalism to compliment the deep spiritual connection to the land, the people and the food.
Chris now lives in Edinburgh, Scotland with his wife, who is also a former resident of the Findhorn community and fellow Integral Master Coach TM. In 2017 he took on his next challenge and become a father to Sienna, his wonderful daughter who has now become his biggest teacher.
