The DZ Brain Trust is a mastermind group designed specifically for owners and managers of skydiving dropzones (DZO’s and DZM’s). Under the facilitation of James La Barrie, this group promises a unique platform for collaborative growth and learning, ensuring no direct competitors are included.
During COVID, as challenges mounted, James La Barrie facilitated virtual meetings to bring everyone together to share information on how to overcome challenges presented by the pandemic. As we navigated the pandemic together, a sense of camaraderie and shared understanding emerged. Since then, a few clients have commented how much they enjoyed those sessions and wished it had continued. This inspired the creation of the DZ Brain Trust, a permanent community aimed at fostering mutual support and collaboration among skydiving business leaders.
