Hello, my name’s Marc (with a ‘c’) Gosschalk. After seven years in leading digital media and marketing roles, I set up Hackney Roots in 2015 to be closer to social and creative projects. I bring together experience, know-how and connections across these interconnected environments to find original ways to help businesses grow more organically.

I am an active board member of the Hackney Social Enterprise Place Partnership, and was recently shortlisted in the Positive Change Hero category at the 2019 Foodism 100 Awards.

I use the term ‘organic business consultant’ to illustrate an approach rooted in helping businesses to grow in line with their natural character: with support from friends and partners; with respect to environment, community and clients; with a bit of patience, fun and adventure along the way.

Competition often leads to compromises, while personality, integrity and collaboration goes a long way.

This is about more than good business, but business that feels good too.
