    John Dabrowski is the founder of JD Mindcoach Ltd, a company that helps individuals and organisations develop world class mental resilience. John has experienced great challenges and adventures in his life, from being the last pick ‘off the wall’ at school, to playing basketball for England in the Commonwealth games. He played basketball from the age of 12 and quickly improved by using the techniques of mental resilience that he discovered and developed. This led him into a professional basketball career where he played all over Europe, culminating in winning the Play-Off finals at Wembley live on BBC TV. In his latter playing days, he scored a British record of 98 points in a single match, which he credits to ‘being in the zone.’

    Following a serious back injury, he finished playing after the Play-Off victory and took up a position of commercial manager at Sunderland basketball club. It was here that he discovered a hidden talent for sales and marketing. He then became general manager of the Manchester Giants basketball club, where with hard work and good management they were voted the best-promoted club in England by the English Basketball Association.

    John then left the basketball world to enter the sales arena, initially in the capacity of regional sales executive for the Metro Radio station in Newcastle. He quickly established himself in the role and was soon promoted to regional sales manager where he flourished. He brought in record sales for the station, as well as hitting a record 19 monthly sales targets in a row. Over the next 20 years, he worked for some outstanding design and advertising agencies where he learned excellent sales and marketing techniques. He reached director level and won various national accounts as well as looking after large key accounts. He learned great rapport-building techniques which helped him build his client base.

    A few years ago, before he set up JD Mindcoach Ltd, he qualified as an NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) practitioner and coach, and completed various courses in human relations and guided imagery and is also a level three counsellor. He has attended many courses to develop his skills and is a member of the Professional Speaking Association.

    John now runs Mental Resilience and Sales courses around the country to various sized organisations, including the Probation Trust, NatWest Bank, Kenwood, Salvation Army Housing, NHS, the Academy for Chief Executives, Nottingham University, Wakefield Housing, and Hatstand Financial. He has also run workshops in Gibraltar and Scotland, where they have been equally well-received. He has worked with hundreds of Chief Executives and Directors, inspiring them to achieve more.

    John coaches executive clients from all corners of the country including the Isle of Man. He works individually to help them overcome challenges and develop new techniques to inspire them to achieve peak performance. John’s thriving speaking career includes the Rotary Club Convention, where he inspired 650 delegates with his stories and humour. He is a regular on BBC Radio and has been interviewed on TV. He speaks at various events inspiring people with his stories and techniques. He has developed his speaking skills over the past few years and has a dream to speak all over the world.

    He is an advocate of the law of attraction, which states that doing the right things and working hard brings amazing benefits to your life. John has used a raft of mental resilience techniques to help him succeed in life and to build his current successful business. He now shares these with people to help them discover things within that they weren’t aware of, and to reach heights they never dreamed of. He believes that when you boil life down to a core statement the following phrase he uses sums it all up:  “It’s not how you start in life that counts, but how you finish!”
