Dr Chris Mackel

Business Growth Consultant & Coach


With 30 years of leading the business he founded, Chris has an unquenchable passion for helping businesses to grow with a track record of success to match. In this time, he has worked in partnership with the leading development agencies in both the UK and Europe, and led teams delivering over £90 million in grant funding to clients.

He gets a real buzz working with entrepreneurs and business leaders to create the focus that will enable them to achieve their targets – both business and personal. Also, having developed a highly effective team in his own business, he now applies these same skills and experience in working with the teams of many of the client firms that he has helped set on a growth path. For this reason, he is particularly passionate about working with aspirational business leaders, and high growth teams.

He enjoys public speaking, is media savvy and actively blogs on business related matters. He is involved in business networking in the Manchester area.

He has fine-tuned and augmented his coaching skills via the Coaching Academy, the International Coaching Federation and NLP.

Spare Time

In his downtime he enjoys reading, cycling, skiing and entertaining a tribe of grandkids. He is involved in his local Christian community.
