John Loblack, Ed. D., our Director of Strategic Solutions, is an accomplished and change-oriented human development expert who draws upon his diverse background, training and experiences to encourage, motivate and inspire nonprofit leaders to drastically increase their individual and organizational value.
As a graduate from the school of “Hard Knocks,” John learned to appreciate the value of hard work and perseverance.
With his single mother as the “principal,” John understood at an early age that a sound education would be his ticket to a meaningful life.
When John shares with members of his audience, he marries the lessons from academia and from his professional experiences with those he learned on the streets of the small Caribbean Island, Dominica.
There, he was an accomplished soccer player — the Most Outstanding Player on the 1978 Caribbean Youth Soccer Championship team, Dominica. One year later, he led his local club side, Spartans, to its first premier league championship in 25 years.
Before moving to the United States in 1993, he was a news editor at the Dominica Broadcasting Corporation’s DBS Radio, a reporter with the Government Information Service, hosted a sports talk show, “On the Ball,” and was a sports correspondent for the Caribbean News Agency.
In the United States, he has experiences as an elementary school, middle school and high school teacher, a career college instructor, a university campus dean, and a learning and development specialist.
John holds a doctoral degree in organizational leadership, a master’s degree in human resource management, an undergraduate degree in sociology, and a diploma in mass communication.
He is a Certified Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder-centered coach, a Career Development Facilitator (GCDF), a Certified Workplace Excellence Skills Facilitator, and a Motivation and Empowerment coach.
