John Amaechi

We are delighted to report that one of our members and Chartered Scientists, John Amaechi OBE, founder of the consultancy APS Intelligence, has been appointed Honorary Professor at the University of Exeter Business School.

John is an international bestselling author, a public speaker, organisational psychologist, and executive coach. The recent honorary appointment recognises the growing relationship between the University of Exeter Business School and John, whose perspective on responsible leadership and the importance of ethical and inclusive leadership have resonated with the business school’s strategic priorities.  

As a chartered scientist, a chartered fellow of the CIPD, a research fellow at the University of East London, and a fellow of both the Royal Society for Public Health, and the Association of Business Psychologists, John’s vast contribution to education and research is well renowned.

Professor Alexandra Gerbasi, Deputy Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University of Exeter Business School said:

“We are absolutely delighted that John is joining us as an Honorary Professor. Our students and Faculty are consistently inspired by his thought leadership on the key topics of equality, diversity and responsible and inclusive leadership. We look forward to continuing to build our relationship with John in his new role of Honorary Professor.”

John commented:

“It has been refreshing to speak to the students at the University of Exeter Business school over the last few years. That joy is only eclipsed by the collegiality and instant bond I’ve developed with leaders and faculty members who made me feel a part of the university long before this honour. I can’t wait to see what ‘good trouble’ we can get into together!”

 Our congratulations go to John on this prestigeous appointment.
