​"It is not simple or very straight forward to apply or transmit brain science to education. I mean, if it was it would have been done already." - Dr Sandra van Aalderen, Senior Researcher at Saxion University, 2015

"We want students to achieve their true potential - but they don't have any idea
what their incredible true potential really is."
These workshops make sure students realise what they are truly capable of -
and how to achieve it!

These gifts that carol dweck recommends ARE THE VERY SAME GIFTS WE GIVE STUDENTS
OF ALL AGES. ​As  MOTIVATIONAL ​Presenters, we instill in students:
THE LOVE OF LEARNING, THE DESIRE TO ACHIEVE, THE LOVE OF A CHALLENGE
& BELIEF IN THEIR OWN INCREDIBLE ABILITIES!
THIS ALL LEADS TO BOUNDLESS MOTIVATION AND SETS THEM ON A PATH TO REALISE AND
REACH THEIR INCREDIBLE TRUE POTENTIAL

"A fabulous workshop where I feel the parents learned as much as the kids!  The workshop was well presented, interactive and loads of fun 
keeping everyone engaged and learning.  
The kids have talked about it to friends and family and use the terminology regularly so it definitely sunk in.  Would highly recommend!

"The BRAIN is involved in all LEARNING that we do –
so if we’re in the business of LEARNING –
doesn’t it make sense that we know how the BRAIN learns best?"

Excellent presentation tailored to our specific needs! Tammy-Anne is an enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable educator in her field and exudes passion as she delivers her content…. We will definitely have Tammy-Anne back to deliver more content in the future!

Now YOU can be a part of the Mind-Brain Revolution!


The best part...it's all backed by research!

SEE THE RESEARCH BEHIND WHY EDUCATIONAL NEURO-SCIENCE IS A GAME CHANG​ER FOR THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION!

  • ​The OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation & Development) through CERI (Centre for Educational Research & Innovation) has embarked on a project to explore a neuro-scientific approach to learning.
  • CERI/OECD states that “the education community has started to realise that ‘understanding the brain’ can help to open new pathways to improve educational research, policies and practice” – and asks, “Is the current classroom model of learning ‘brain un-friendly’?”
  • CERI/OECD calls for “holistic approaches” to education in order to help student brains meet their potential and facilitate the learning process.
  • The Grattan Institute found, in 2017, that nearly half of all school students in Australia are disengaged from the education process; many students just don’t enjoy learning. Dr Judy Willis says that when we remove joy and pleasure from the classroom – students become bored, anxious and disengaged from the learning process. Surprise, surprise!

This is just the tip of the iceberg!

"I found it fascinating, stimulating and extremely informative….Tammy-Anne's choice of pictures to represent concepts is amazing. Each picture matches the concept she is teaching. Her presentation was captivating and held my attention for the entire 2 hours.… I will be able to take this newly obtained knowledge and apply it directly to my teaching on day 1….Through her training Tammy-Anne demonstrated the reasons why applying different teaching strategies are more effective than others. I would highly recommend her training to anyone involved in education.
