Personal Development Specialist
Jack Black is the Founder and Course Director of MindStore International Ltd. In the 1980s, he was a social worker in the underprivileged East End of Glasgow. After seeing two colleagues destroy their health through the stress of work whilst only in their 40s, and then experiencing a similar collapse himself, he decided to discover how stress could be managed and personal development harnessed to allow people to fulfill their potential. MindStore was the culmination of his findings and now Jack is recognised as one of Europe’s leading authorities on personal development and is an internationally renowned keynote speaker.
