In conversation with John Amaechi: where have all the great leaders gone?


Thousands of people have spoken at Tortoise ThinkIns since March 2020, from world leaders to keyworkers. One of the most memorable is John Amaechi OBE, who joined us for a ThinkIn soon after the murder of George Floyd, and bowled us over with his wisdom and his warmth. We’re delighted he’s agreed to come back again to talk about his extraordinary new book, The Promises of Giants, which has been called “one of the most powerful books ever written about leadership” by Adam Grant.

Starting life as a self-described “nerdy and overweight” child, John became the first British NBA star and is now an international human rights ambassador, best-selling author, Royal honoree and elite psychologist. He is the perfect person to spend an hour with before we break for the summer, reflecting on the state of leadership in the world and explaining how everyone can be a giant to someone.

Buy John’s book The Promises of Giants. 

We are introducing a new booking system that will make it easier than ever for you to join our ThinkIns.
