Lynn Macwhinnie

I am a leadership development consultant, executive coach and team facilitator as well as a coaching supervisor and mentor to senior executive coaches and organizational consultants.

Lynn Mac Feb 2015 small Experience

My experience and education is international and diverse and I have worked across several sectors and industries including blue chip, SME’s and education.

My earlier executive career was in food, film and publishing in the USA, UK and Australia before becoming a Relate couple therapist, educator, then training consultant designing and delivering development programmes in several countries and to multi-cultural groups.



I help people to gain insight and develop their leadership presence. From the ripples they create in their organization, to how they impact and influence its culture, their professional relationships and their personal lives. Being authentic, communicative, purposeful, decisive, mindful and successful requires an attentiveness and willingness to transform limiting beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. This applies as much to teams as to individuals; it is the dynamics of the relationships that have the greatest influence on how potential is achieved.

What people say


Nick Allen, Director of a National Organisation

I had just become head of my organisation when I suffered a personal tragedy. I will be forever grateful that I had someone of Lynn’s experience and ability to not only help me deal with the tragedy but to help me develop and grow my leadership and professional skills at the same time. Lynn doesn’t just help you deal with the problems in front of you; she equips you to deal with whatever life throws at you.
