Mental Health

Dominic McGregor stands as a paragon of success, leadership and resilience in today’s fast-paced business environment. As the Co-Founder of Social Chain, he catapulted into the limelight at an early age, showcasing his ability to innovate and adapt. While many know him for the global brand Social Chain, his accolades extend far beyond. He not only clinched the esteemed ‘EY Entrepreneur of The Year’ award in 2019 – a testimony to his exceptional vision and leadership – but he also collaborated with the government, shaping its social media strategy. However, what makes Dominic an inspirational leader is not just his list of achievements but the adversities he faced and overcame. Behind the glossy façade of a company, known for its unique and vibrant workplace (including a slide in place of stairs), Dominic grappled with personal demons. The pressures of piloting a multimillion-pound global company took a severe toll on his mental health. At the tender age of 23, he found himself ensnared in a toxic corporate life reminiscent of “The Wolf of Wall Street.” Alcohol became a dangerous crutch until he bravely chose sobriety.

Dominic’s authenticity in sharing his mental health journey, juxtaposed with his corporate achievements, makes him a beacon of hope for many. His experiences underscore the fact that success and well-being are not always synonymous, and leaders too, are vulnerable. Moving away from start-ups, Dominic is channelling his vast reservoir of knowledge into mentoring the next generation of entrepreneurs. As the Founding Partner of Fearless Adventures, Dominic is more than just a financial powerhouse. He is nurturing ground for budding talent, providing them with both financial and emotional support. Dominic applies the invaluable lessons he learned as a young entrepreneur, ensuring others don’t walk the path alone.

From dropping out of university to listing Social Chain at a staggering £300m valuation in just six years, Dominic’s trajectory exemplifies that success is not linear. Dominic McGregor isn’t just a business maven; he’s a testament to resilience, adaptability, and the power of vulnerability in leadership. His keynotes resonate not just with aspiring entrepreneurs but with anyone seeking to find balance, purpose and strength amidst challenges.
