John Amaechi OBE – nicknamed the ‘Everyday Jedi’ – is known around the world for many reasons: he is a respected organisational psychologist, best-selling New York Times author, sought after public speaker, executive coach and CEO of APS Ltd. He is a non-executive director of a £2.4bn healthcare organisation, in addition to being a board advisor for several FTSE100 organisations. John is a Chartered Scientist, a Chartered Fellow of the CIPD, a Fellow of the Royal Society for Public Health and a Research Fellow at the University of East London.

Since the tragic death of George Floyd in May 2020, John has featured in numerous TV shows to stress how now is the time for us all to take a stand and do our bit to fight racism.
