Brits in Business is a dynamic and informal networking group where individuals help each other to generate business opportunities. It focuses on the British entrepreneur, but is open to all Anglophones in business.
Brits in Business was created in 2005 by UK Trade & Investment in Geneva and a group of British entrepreneurs who felt they lacked a forum to learn from other entrepreneurs, to share business ideas and to make new contacts.
Our evening events include elevator pitches, speed-networking and guest speakers who are invited to share their experiences.
Author and International speaker John Dabrowski, The Mental Resilience Expert, has spent over 30 years in the business world, putting him in a unique position to deal with contemporary business challenges. His mix of vast experience allied with an accomplished ability to make personal growth simple, delivered with his infectious enthusiasm and energy, has inspired audiences and made him a most highly regarded and sought after personal growth expert.
International and Professional Basketball Player
John has played basketball both as a professional and for England in the Commonwealth Games and once scored an unprecedented 98 points in a local league match and this remains the current British record to his day. He was a top performing premier league basketball club manager for the Manchester Giants. He then went on to become a high achieving radio sales manager and a multi award winning agency director in the advertising and marketing world.
Personal Growth Facilitator
He is a qualified NLP practitioner and NLP coach - he has a particular gift in teaching visualisation and inner voice techniques which access the subconscious to help create the future people really want. John has personally used these techniques to great effect in both his sporting and business career.
