Educational Neuroscience Company
We improve connection which boosts learning, productivity and well-being.
The most important asset in any organisation is… the brains of your people!
We offer insights and information based on decades of research on how the human brain works. Our science-based development, training, and systemic change programs provide all the facts and none of the neuromyths.
Mark Williams interweaves history, psychology, and human health to tell the fascinating story of humankind. With warmth and humor, Williams explains how our species is shaped by a powerful drive to connect and affiliate—a drive that can both foster our greatest accomplishments and feed our worst inclinations.
“Mark breaks down the complexity of human behaviour, especially the everyday behaviours we take for granted. The impact of this knowledge and insight gives meaning to the term “think before you act” and goes a long way to teaching understanding, empathy and connection for ourselves and everyone around us.”
— Danny Mayson-Kinder
