Lee Chambers – My Mission

I am, in many ways, a renegade of a business psychologist. I am not steeped in research, and I have spent my time trying to understand elements of human performance after losing the ability to walk.

This has taken me on a journey to attempt to influence our working environments, a place where we spend countless hours carrying out specific tasks. By using critical thinking about spaces, places, and how people interact with them, I have taken a deep interest in wellbeing and how it can be embedded strategically.

By using multidisciplinary theories to integrate regenerative practices into workplaces, my mission is to make where we work a place that energises us, rather than drains us.

Lee Chambers – My Experience

Losing my ability to walk changed my worldview completely, and propelled me on a journey to understand how we, as humans, can optimise our bodies and our minds.

I have worked in the Private Sector, the Public Sector and in Elite Sports. I have founded three businesses, two of which are still runnning today. I have a Level 4 or above qualification in:

Nutrition For Human Performance
Strength and Conditioning Coaching
Sleep Consultancy
Coaching and Mentoring
Leadership and Management

I blend these together with my lived experience to create a bespoke wellbeing solution for your organisation.

Lee Chambers – My Life

I live near Preston, Lancashire, in the Ribble Valley. When I’m not boosting employee wellbeing, I coach a disability football team, and I enjoy reading thought-provoking books and walking in nature.

As part of my social enterprise, I speak about the challenges I’ve faced and the obstacles I’ve overcome in colleges and schools.

I love travelling and immersing myself in different cultures. I have a passion for understanding complexity, which lead me to follow Formula One and have a keen interest in Neuroscience.

I enjoy a variety of music, from Classical to Coldplay, and always cherish the chance to eat good food with good friends.
