Who are We?

TopMind isn't just an idea; it's a scientifically proven methodology.

THE VISION OF TOPMIND IS PERSONAL

Anne Johan Willemsen, TopMind’s founder, was exposed to the power of leadership fitness at a young age when his father faced a life conundrum. He was an excellent surgeon but found the stress crippling. AJ’s father tried various techniques to lessen his stress without success. Finally, when he discovered the power of meditation, AJ saw his father transformed. Calm. Enjoying his work.

AJ’s dream is to transform the fitness (both mental and physical) of as many leaders as possible, allowing the impact to trickle down to those whom they interact with and inspire daily. This is the ultimate meaning of leadership fitness.

TOPMIND IS SCIENTIFICALLY VERIFIED (UVA 2015).

TOPMIND IS UNIQUE, INCORPORATING PHYSICAL AND MENTAL FITNESS FOR THE ULTIMATE RESULTS.

The TopMind Program has been researched by the University of Amsterdam (AMC) and findings are published in the renowned international scientific journal: The World's Journal of Surgery, 2015. Moreover it has been tested on a wide variety of people and teams, from top executives and entrepreneurs to over 100 professional athletes.

Our TRAIN, TRACK, TRACE methodology ensures that intentions are translated to actions and then into habits.
