Meet the man who has helped six sportsmen reach World No. 1
Part of Qandor'S commitment to its members means introducing key individuals who will provide exceptional value and share their expertise and insight
We are delighted to introduce a new addition to the Advisory Board, Jamil Qureshi. One of today's foremost practitioners of performance-enhancing psychology, Jamil is an expert in high-performing teams. He has enjoyed working with a rich diversity of the most talented business and sports people and teams in the world, helping no less than six individuals get to World Number 1 ranking.
In 2006, Jamil was appointed as the first-ever official psychologist to work with the European Ryder Cup team by captain Ian Woosnam. They made history in winning by a record-equalling margin. He has also worked with 22 golfers inside the top 50 in the world, including Lee Westwood, Paul McGinley, Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke, Paul Casey, Thomas Bjorn, Sergio Garcia and two world number ones. Ranked among the most influential figures in British sport, Jamil was voted in the top 100 most powerful men in golf by his international peers in 2008.
Off the green, Jamil has worked successfully with three English Premiership football clubs, one of which reaching a record position from its halfway point in the season, two Formula 1 racing drivers, David Coulthard and Eddie Irvine, and the 2009 England Ashes-winning cricketers.
Business & Industry
Jamil has worked from CEO and board level to middle management in a variety of sectors, spanning over 24 different countries, helping teams to fulfil their potential by orchestrating change and performance programmes.
He has developed and delivered management and leadership programmes at board level for Coca-Cola, Hewlett Packard, Emirates Airlines, Serco, Marks and Spencer, and Royal Bank of Scotland, and has worked across Lloyds Banking Group on their ‘Journey to World Class’ initiative.
He has led teams responsible for change management in several high-profile areas, such as Lloyds Banking Group’s substantial integration strategy, and with The Post Office to create The Post Office Way during their separation from Royal Mail.
If that wasn’t impressive enough, Jamil is also an internationally acclaimed speaker on topics such as:
- the psychology of performance
- psychology of leadership
- leadership attitudes
- improving people
- cultural change techniques
- team performance.
Jamil is one of only a few external psychologists ever to be allowed to study astronauts on the 2008 NASA Space Programme. He has also talked to an audience that included two former US presidents at the K Club in Ireland. His versatility can be illustrated by the fact he has talked at NASDAQ in Times Square where he shared a stage with General Peter Pace, Head of Joint Chief of Staff, the highest-ranking military officer in the US armed forces, and next day did stand up in front of a celebrity audience at the Groucho Club!
Jamil used to be a regular at London’s prestigious Comedy Store and spent two years working with TV’s award-winning mind reader, Derren Brown. He also lectures on the prestigious WorldProgram, in the US, UK and China through Ashridge and Fordham Business Schools and Qing Dao University.
Quorum extends a warm welcome to Jamil and we look forward to working with him.
