He has also worked with top-flight English Premiership football clubs, fighter pilots, Formula 1 racing drivers, and English cricketers. He has helped six sports stars to achieve World Number One. But sports psychology is only a small part of Jamil’s success. 90% of his success has been as a change and performance agent working with business transformation programmes.
As far as his work with businesses goes, he has worked with a number of business leaders spanning the globe, working not only with executives but their teams as well, enabling them to fulfil their potential with regards to different company programmes.

His fun, engaging and thought-provoking talks are delivered in such a way that audiences leave feeling they take home real value from the content and that his message can be used on a personal level.
Jamil’s presentations are uniquely refreshing, as unlike the majority of other speakers he does not rely on a pre-prepared presentation. He opts to use a flip chart and a thick black marker pen often projected above onto a screen for larger audiences. The benefit of this approach is that he adapts his keynote content on the go to suit the need of the audience in front of him. His keynotes are inspiring and the lack of use of a pre-prepared Powerpoint presentation is different and welcomed by audiences who have grown used to and in many cases become bored with the standard approach other speakers typically use.
After a client presentation, Jamil will normally within one week send all clients a summary of his keynote, helping to remind audiences of the main takeaway actions. He presents in English and communicates in a presentation manner and speed that can be understood by multi-national and multi-cultural audiences.

“Great talk from Jamil Qureshi today on the psychology of high performance. What an amazing speaker! Some of my take-aways:
“Jamil genuinely knows how to get results!” – New York Knicks
"I haven’t had a chance to have a full debrief from the team. But what I did gather from side conversations on Monday is that Jamil went down really well. I found him particularly compelling and engaging. I thought his content was exactly what they needed to hear and Jamil’s delivery was perfect. I’m a happy customer!" Mark
"Ah he (Jamil) was great the team loved him and the content was perfect – I was going to drop him a note as soon as I had chance to catch up!"
"My feedback and the feedback from Paul on the conference of Jamil are very positive. 8-9 out of 10.The speech was great and engaging. It helped set the tone and demonstrate that this training was different. I have received many positive feedback from the sales reps in the audience. "
"Jamil uses a different approach, with no powerpoint, just flip charts and markers pens which is refreshing. He delivers simple approaches to various challenges that people can take away and use in the business place. People asked lots of questions and when I walked around the room, everyone was listening and nobody was on their mobile phone, which is a good sign. On Jamil's flight back to the UK I was told a few of our team were on the plane reading his book that they had just received a copy of and Jamil noticed and spoke with them in his friendly manner. I would happily recommend Jamil and our business is looking at ways in which we can continue to utilise his inspiration."
"Love the concept of Ownership! As an idea it will resonate with any leader driving change. Inspirational! Thank you so much!”
"Fabulous speaker! What a hit. We couldn't have asked for more. Great plenary speech, his masterclass had the best feedback we've recorded for a break-out. We will be working with him again".
“Jamil ran a great session for us last week. Not only was it the biggest paper, scissor, stone flash mob I've seen (not an everyday occurrence to be fair), but it also had all of us thinking about how important attitude is, and that it's how we respond to events that matters, not what the events are per se. That, plus his rogue monkey analogy (which has since been scribbled on the office wall!) made it a very fun and inspiring session. Feedback from the team was that this was the best external speaker we've had at a Tesco Mobile event. Thanks Jamil.”
"Clever and incisive, it is the practical take-aways which has led to this presentation being so well received! Jamil Qureshi is a speaker that gives the audience some real & relevant learnings that can (and will!) be used immediately".
“His combination of ethusiasm, creativity, humour, energy and proven expertise meant that his audience were challenged, inspired, made to laugh and all took away real and actionable areas to address.”
"Genuinely funny, provocative, and engaging! It is not often, you see someone you immediately want to re-book for next year!"
