John Amaechi OBE
In a world where people are increasingly left to fight their and everyone else’s battles, I believe no individual and no organisation should go uncoached in life, work or sport.
There is literally no one in the world of performance coaching and organisational psychology with a background so diverse and multi-dimensional.
John has transformed himself from an obese child who hid in the corner of his local library, to one of the worlds best professional basketball players; and now after retirement from sport has once again metamorphosed into a psychologist, New York Times best-selling author, television presenter, academic and ambassador for organizations such as Amnesty International and the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games.
Having lived in Continental Europe for five years before moving to America for a further ten, his international and cross-cultural experience is immense and his formulas apply to an endlessly diverse clientele across Europe and the Americas.
John augments the impact of his business and psychological interventions by being an accomplished speaker with experience addressing a diverse cross- section of clients, including an impressive list of Fortune 500/FTSE 100 corporations, international trusts and world-class educational institutions, throughout Europe and the United States.
In addition to his professional endeavours, John has his own charity, the ABC Foundation with a purpose built centre in Manchester that sees 2,000 young people per week go through its doors.
John believes that success is a product of clear self-assessment, pragmatic planning and harnessing the real power of authentic human interactions.
Book John as your key-note speaker with the option to cascade a powerful tailored message to your people at every level. When not at the speaker’s podium, John solves problems for large companies that have lost their spark. He uses unique techniques to drive productivity, quality, customer and employee satisfaction in organisations across the globe.
John works with individuals, from chief executives to sports stars, using one-to-one coaching to unlock their personal resources and unlock their potential. His bespoke communication program helps people to shine at public speaking engagements at both impromptu and prepared environments.
