Amaechi is a respected organisational psychologist, a New York Times best-selling author, and CEO of APS – a strategic consultancy that works across Europe, Asia and North America
Amaechi partners with organisations to help leaders deliver on the promise of authentic transformational leadership. He focuses on improving performance by solving intractable people problems; creating thriving workplaces in the face of inevitable challenges and disruption.
Amaechi coaches individuals and consults with organisations to improve communication, leadership and teaming and enhance culture as a way to grow, improve and achieve goals. His psychological insight helps people understand the barriers to high performance and overcome them. He understands motivation and personal development and the roots of success that enable these traits to flourish. He also considers the nature of competition, the importance of cognitive diversity in organisational achievement, and aligning personal and business values and ethics.
Amaechi’s experience is unique – he created a masterplan for his own radical personal transformation from an overweight British schoolboy to the first British NBA (National Basketball Association) star to psychologist – and his approach appeals to people from all walks of life.
In addition to running his own international strategic consultancy Amaechi is also a chartered scientist, an elected fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health, a research fellow at the University of East London, and he holds various additional board and trustee positions.
