Amina Chitembo Leadership Development, Diversity and Inclusion Leadership header

Hello and thank you for visiting. 

My name is Amina, as you can see I am many things. My key thing at the moment is the PhD. My research focuses on highly skilled and highly qualified migrant women and their inclusion into leadership and entrepreneurship. I place emphasis on the woman’s lens, working across corporations, small and medium enterprises (SME) and individual businesses or sole proprietorships. I align my research with the current international discourse on gender balance in leadership, and the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals; #SDG5 – Gender Equality and #SDG10 – Reducing Inequalities.

"As a mother who spent ten years at home looking after children, I joined Amina as an employee of her charity. Amina quickly saw potential in me and became my coach and mentor. She is selfless, supportive, professional and always wants people to succeed. My husband and I are business owners.  We were juggling work and three girls. It was all getting tiring, managing time and the staff was not easy, and the business was starting to suffer. Amina helped me develop a flexible plan than that help us to turn things around, which have improved our energy and help us to perform better in the business. She was a great coach for my career journey. I am now the first ever Asian Woman and only the second ethnic minority person to hold political council office in West Sussex. Give her a go and let the results speak for themselves. You won’t regret it!”

"Amina is very inspiring. She motivates me to achieve better results and get the most out of myself and my team. She doesn't tell me what to do but leads me to think outside of the box, look at future visions, have a clear focus for my work. Her wealth of experience and knowledge has benefited Hampton Tiddlers immensely. What is more, she helped Hampton Tiddlers to get the funding that we desperately needed in February 2017. Now we can offer more service and activities for the children and their families in Peterborough and surrounding areas."

“I met Amina at an event in 2017. For a long time, I had dreamt of becoming a published author. Since I started working with Amina as my book writing coach and publisher, I have written and published four solo books and co-authored another three books. Her efficiency and mentorship have been impeccable and invaluable. She is a good coach because she is not afraid to challenge your thinking. She can be tough, but it is all because she wants your work to be the best quality possible.  I thank God for linking us, and I have many more books to come. If you want a great boo coach, Contact Amina.”
