Alain is also a prominent figure in the world of sport. Since 1980, he has coached the Belgian Tennis Federation, been the mental coach for the Belgian Men’s Hockey Team and even took part in the 2008 Olympic Games, in Beijing. By 2012, with Alain’s mental coaching, the Belgian Women’s Hockey Team qualified for the Olympic Games in London – this made them the first Belgium Women’s Team to do so.

With his combination of both business and sporting knowledge, Alain published The Corporate Athlete in 2002, Attitude Coach in 2004 and It’s All In The Character in 2007 – all of which have since been translated into multiple languages. These non-fiction books have made Alain’s invaluable knowledge accessible to not just business owners, but everyday people too, inspiring all who read them to unlock their own mental capabilities – a topic which he also promotes in his public speaking.
