Max LandsbergMax was born in Scotland, after visiting the summit of Scotland's second highest mountain before he was born (his mother was pregnant at the time!).
He is a keen mountaineer, one of the UK’s more persistent and wide-ranging trekkers, and has a particular passion for Scotland, and for bringing mountainscapes to life for other people.
Max has trekked in widely in the Himalaya, Rockies, Andes, and Alps. In 2013 for example, with a 15kg backpack, he covered the 1,000 kilometres and 50,000 metres of vertical ascent required to complete the 'Furth Munros' of England and Wales, Scotland’s Cape Wrath Trail, Corsica’s GR20, and Switzerland’s Alpine Pass Route.
He is a member of the Outdoor Writers’ and Photographers’ Guild and forthcoming plans include establishing a new hiking trail across Scotland, circumnavigating the Mediterranean’s largest islands by sea kayak, and trekking Alaska’s eight National Parks.
He believes strongly in the value of education, serving for seven years as a Governor of the University of Roehampton.
Formerly a Partner at McKinsey & Company and at headhunters Heidrick & Struggles, he now advise Boards on strategy and leadership. He has written extensively on coaching, leadership and motivation, and his The Tao of Coaching and Tools of Leadership have remained in print for fifteen years, selling more than 200,000 copies in fifteen languages.
