Lee Chambers – My Mission
I am, in many ways, a renegade of an Environmental Psychologist. I am not steeped in research, and I have spent my time trying to understand elements of physiology 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 become a Wellbeing Consultant.
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 3 businesses, two of which still run today. I have a Level 4 or above qualification in:
Nutrition For Human Performance
Strength and Conditioning Coaching
Coaching and Mentoring
Leadership and Management
I blend these together with my lived experience to create a bespoke wellbeing solution for your organisation.
I combine environmental psychology assessments with both physical and mental health workshops, designed to build employee awareness around sleep, resilience, mindset and habits.
I provide training for wellbeing champions, enabling them to build communities within organisations so that wellbeing becomes embedded within business processes. And I assist leadership and management teams with measuring its benefits, planning strategy, and igniting a shift in culture.
Lee Chambers – My Life
I live in Preston, Lancashire with my wife and two children. 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.
Lee Chambers is the cousin of British athlete Dwain Chambers.
He has recorded over 100 podcasts, includes episodes with Steven Bartlett, Josh Elledge and Shelley F. Knight.
Lee was featured in the Top 50 BAME Entrepreneurs Under 50, alongside Nitin Passi, Sonya Barlow, Eric Yuan and Rangan Chatterjee.
In addition, he has been recognised by Startups.co.uk alongside Anne Boden, Jamal Edwards, Leah Totton and Ben Francis. In 2020, he was highlighted as a black entrepreneur to watch along with Timothy Armoo of Fanbytes by Business Live.
