Essentialise Workplace Wellbeing

Lee Chambers has faced his fair share of adversity on his journey so far, but he has not let this define him. This week he has been awarded Service Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, hosted at Grosvenor House in London. This accolade sits alongside three other business awards won since September, a real boost for the business, which only launched in February 2020.

But this is not the greatest of his achievements, with Lee managing to triumph through trauma multiple times in his life. He credits his experience of learning to walk again after his immune system failed in 2014 as the fuel that forged his current wellbeing business, and highlights how his newborn daughter gave him the strength to get back on his feet.

Chambers speaks candidly about how his time working in a charity, a period as a stay at home dad and his previous business mistakes have shaped him to become the business owner he is today. He has recently been diagnosed with Asperger's, after going through the process with his son, which has helped him to see some of the challenges he has faced in business with a fresh pair of eyes.

Despite a very difficult start for Essentialise Workplace Wellbeing, losing initial clients due to the first lockdown, Lee has navigated the company to a prime position to grow sustainably in 2022. The company's clients range from a regional social enterprise to numerous FTSE 100 organisations, who appreciate the evidence-based, data-driven inclusive wellbeing it delivers. At the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, the judges picked out Lee's entrepreneurial spirit, social impact, championing diversity and determined drive as the stand out factors that secured him victory in a competitive category.

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards are the pinnacle for business owners in the United Kingdom, and in their 10th year, they are more popular than ever, with almost 5,000 entrepreneurs applying across a variety of categories. Previous winners have included Steven Bartlett and Alan Barratt, and the 2021 victors included Jimmy Hill of Hairburst and Cas Paton of OnBuy.

On his victory in the Services category, Lee Chambers said, "It's been a really challenging year to be a the helm of a new business, and there have been times I've felt out of my depth. But the calibre of our clients, the outcomes of our delivery and the high-level recognition show that we are doing something right, and provide the encouragement to keep learning, growing and refining what we do.

"What is clear is that our values of social impact, inclusion and effective wellbeing are appreciated in the dynamic world we live in. To be selected as a Great British Entrepreneur is a dream come true, and it's something I thought about when recovering in my hospital bed. Now, it's a reality, and I want to thank my team, clients and collaborators for making it a possibility."

The outlook for Chambers looks even more eventful in 2022, with his debut book The Millennials Guide to Wellness, a new website for Essentialise launching, continued lobbying with Wellbeing Lancashire and a new elite performance company on the horizon, he certainly is one to watch for the future.
