As a seasoned skydiver and tandem instructor with over 2000 jumps, Thomas Kozlowski is recognised as a prominent figure in the world of extreme sports. In 2014, he made history by completing the highest skydive jump in Europe, reaching 35,220 ft after being raised to the stratosphere on a hot air balloon.
A passionate advocate for social causes, he will be initiating the JUMP FOR THE PLANET Project in 2023/24 to draw global attention to the plight of climate refugees through a skydive from the edge of space (148,000 ft / 45km). His dedication to charity is highlighted by his 2017 feat of jumping 50 times in a single day, each jump dedicated to a person with a particular challenge, raising over 50,000 EUR for charitable causes. The following year, he set a new record by completing 100 jumps in a day, raising $150,000 for the purchase of specialised wheelchairs for children with disabilities. His contributions to charity earned him the title of CHARITY HERO.
As a keynote speaker and experienced coach, Thomas brings a wealth of experience as a psychologist and consultant, having written the book “The Story of a Thousand Fears.” He has also conducted training courses that take into account multicultural aspects, including for NATO Multinational Corps officers.
With a background in mountain rescue, ski instruction, and critical intervention, Thomas has provided psychological support in various capacities, including at the request of the Ministry of the Interior and Administration. He is an active member of various organizations related to critical management and traumatic stress and is frequently sought after as a media expert in these fields. His extensive knowledge in health psychology and human factors in mountain accidents is evident through his published works.
