An amiable Northerner with an almost evangelical zeal (The Independent on Sunday Magazine), Malcolm is the charismatic author of Bear Hunt – Earn your living by doing what you love.
He is passionate about passion, and focuses on how to bring love and passion into the workplace by rediscovering your true talents and adopting a series of unorthodox yet simple approaches.
He spent the first twenty three years of his life living in one of Britain’s toughest neighbourhoods, before he noticed something which was to become a central theme of his work and the key to his success. The fact that small things can make a big difference.
After a fast-track career in the public sector, he went on to create three successful management consultancies, before realising that, despite the success, he had become trapped in a life he no longer loved. Bear Hunt shows how anyone can apply eight small principles to create a life and a career that they can love. It is a formula that he really believes in – he has to he uses it every day.
He is adamant that doing what you love does not have to involve ‘downshifting’ and that it is possible to be even more successful when you give your energy and talent to something you really care about. This applies whether you want to do something new or whether you want to create an injection of passion within your current work setting.
As well as being a serial entrepreneur, he has become a celebrated social entrepreneur too. He was given a special award by The Laureus Sport for Good Foundation for his innovative project to use sporting metaphor as a way to tackle depression in young men, and Radio Four’s Changing Places featured his ideas to create vibrant community hubs out of stadia.

It has been highly successful in creating winning bids for funding innovative projects and in developing new ways to get people to participate in physical activity.

You will be amazed at the difference it will make to your life and your work.
His book Bear Hunt – Earn your living by doing what you love is being translated into Turkish, and is the basis of an inspirational session, which is really about how ordinary people are able to achieve extraordinary things – or as Malcolm likes to say “The things they don’t teach kids at school – but should”.
He has a simple view of his life now. It is to do what he loves “great things with great people” something which incredibly has brought him great success, although he believes the reason is simple “People are so busy looking for the ‘big idea’, they forget to notice that small things really can make a big difference. When you take eight small things which are each powerful in their own right, and begin to combine them their effects become magnified. So much so, that anything seems possible”.
