Former MK Dons striker Drewe Broughton will be launching his new book ‘And Then What...?’ this Thursday at Stadium MK.
The launch will take place in the Performance suite at Stadium MK from 3pm.
‘And Then What...? is a frank account of Drewe’s playing days over his 17 years with 22 clubs, including his spell with the Dons during the 2007/08 season.
The book also offers a fascinating, topical insight into his current work today helping to mentor professionals through the high and lows of the game.
As a former England youngster tipped for the top, Drewe admits his career was dogged and undermined by soul searching and self-doubt. It culminated in the big centre-forward going into rehab for addictions and an emotional breakdown after retiring.
Nowadays Drewe is putting his experiences to good use helping the next generation of players cope with the pressures and pitfalls of football. His knowledge and ability to nurture players has helped Drewe build a portfolio of clients including internationals and Premier League stars.
Drewe has also become a go-to person for media to interview as more players start to publicly admit to mental health problems. Drewe believes it is the tip of an epidemic in the game which chews up and spits out talent when it is no longer useful or profitable.
He has strong opinions he will share after seven years of guiding some of the nation’s best young footballers.
This year he also made his debut in the corporate world mentoring CEOs and senior management at three London corporations in the city on how to cope with pressure and improve performance.
Many of his lessons in his book’s chapters on self-belief, ego, winning and vulnerability are as applicable to life and to business as they are football.
Today, Drewe combines his mentoring work with pros with motivational speaking and his role as an ambassador for mental health charity Kaleidoscope.
