A North West entrepreneur has described how he bounced back from a life-changing condition that took away his ability to walk. Lee Chambers' sudden illness back in 2014 saw his immune system attack the connective tissue in his joints - meaning that within days, he had gone from playing team sports to lying in a hospital bed unable to feed himself. Lee now leads his own successful workplace wellbeing business called Essentialise - and was last year named among the UK’s top 50 BAME entrepreneurs Under 50. A psychologist, entrepreneur and radio host, his clients include PwC, RBS, Indeed and Gazprom.
