Wisdom Weaver


Dr. Marcus Ranney



Dr. Marcus Ranney’s journey has led him from disease care, at the patient’s bed-side, to wellbeing, in some of the most extreme environments around the planet. Graduating from University College of London Medical School, his research has taken him to Mt.Everest, the Arctic Circle and the Alps. He has worked with fighter pilots whilst in the Royal Airforce and with astronauts whilst at NASA. After practicing clinical medicine in London, in 2010, he made the transition to Mumbai where he has worked within the Healthcare and Life-sciences industry as a Strategic advisor and Investor with a range of MNC and national bellwether firms. A published best selling author, keynote speaker, digital talk show host and public health commentator, he has been a World Economic Forum’s Global Shaper and more recently appointed as a Senior Fellow to the Atlantic Council, working on a project exploring the relationship between the climate crisis and planetary health. A champion of wellbeing, Marcus is a big believer that sustainably improving the lives of billions of people the world over can only be brought about by enhancing the positive aspects of health rather than focusing solely on pathogenesis and disease. Marcus now divides his energies amongst the three major components of his wellbeing framework-the individual, the team and the system; through various digital ventures and initiatives. Marcus is a keen athlete and long distance marathon runner, he holds a Guinness World Record for backwards running(!) and thoroughly enjoys being a father to his two young children.

Science and technology has been the most influential in my life. It has always been a most important channel of knowledge, right from providing the logic and reasoning in human’s life to improving the quality of life at many different levels which helped to shape my life.
