"Tammy and Todd were highly professional... The sessions were highly engaging and presented in a way that encouraged all the students to be actively involved.
The information presented complimented our focus on encouraging students to have a
growth mindset approach to their learning.
A fantastic program that taught the students about the power of their brain."

The Australian Student Well-Being Framework Checklist asks schools to:
"Actively engage students in ways to enhance their own learning & well-being,
through the school's use of evidence-informed, strengths-based approaches."
This is what we do!
'7 Super Secrets to Grow Your Own Brain' is our most-popular signature 4 period, multi-sensory workshop, popular right across Australia and New Zealand, for students aged 8 – 13 years old.
Hundreds of primary-aged students have enjoyed and benefited from this one-of-a-kind world-leading workshop; where we take the complex topic of brain-science & psychology – and make it come alive for primary students!
We make it memorable, motivational & applicable to young students.
As a primary teacher specialising in Educational Neuro-Science for more than 7 years, Tammy-Anne (aka 'The Mind-Brain Lady') has cleverly formulated a brain-based approach to teach cutting-edge brain-science to a primary-aged audience,
in a fun, understandable, interactive, memorable way, that can benefit their well-being & learning success.
We get them laughing, singing, dancing, predicting, questioning, explaining, drawing & creating, all in this 4 period workshop,
with Todd (aka 'The Mindful Man'), an audio expert, past-teacher and mindfulness enthusiast.
Students in your classrooms can be anxious, bullied, tired, shy, angry, bored, scared, worried, traumatised, distracted or disengaged – and in these states of stress, their brains physically cannot learn effectively.
We provide easy, enjoyable, practical strategies that you and your students can use every day, in every lesson, to lower student stress, boost self-direction & enhance their learning success.

“I found your presentation on the brain immensely interesting!!! I think the brain breaks are a great way to help you calm down and concentrate. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!”
Year 4 Student
“I enjoyed your presentation very much! You helped us learn in a very easy way. I hope you come and teach us again!!!”
Year 5 Student
"I found out a lot of interesting facts and will remember them forever. One of my favourite things about that day was learning that you can grow your brain and make it stronger."
Year 5 Student
Imagine if your students were on the same page as you.
Imagine how much more on-board, cooperative, well-behaved & engaged they would be if they understood exactly how each task you gave them was changing their brain, helping them learn new information & become more intelligent.
Imagine if they had a range of short, simple strategies they could use, to self-regulate & manage their emotions, and help their brain pay attention & remember things easier in your classes.
Imagine if your students knew how lack of sleep and lack of exercise was making them less intelligent.
Imagine if, instead of giving up, they knew exactly how persevering with challenging work & thinking certain things when they made mistakes, was helping their brain grow smarter & healthier.
Imagine having students who took ownership over their learning; who felt empowered to take control of their own improvements & achievements – and who became more self-directed and motivated to succeed.
The good news?
This is ALL possible – with Educational Neuro-Science!
We KNOW this, because it has been Tammy-Anne's experience as a classroom teacher for the past 8 years.
"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!
"When students realise how their own brain works, learns & grows - what their potential really is
- this can be a game-changer for them."
Our unique focus is on taking cutting-edge brain-science & psychology understandings and sharing them with young people - not just teachers - empowering STUDENTS to take control of their OWN well-being & learning – and ultimately to take ownership
over their own success & happiness.
Our workshops meet ACARA's Personal & Social Capability outcomes and cover a great deal of Social & Emotional Learning content and skills. Plus, since the entire workshop is based on Educational Neuro-Science, all our workshops are perfectly aligned with a
STEM approach to education.
Our motivational workshop removes the complexity & mystery surrounding that part of our body that is so crucial to our existence, our well-being & our learning - and yet so unknown to all but a few neuro-scientists & psychologists; to empower students to effectively & easily utilise this knowledge to make everyday choices, to improve their well-being and learn as best as they possibly can, in an enjoyable manner- all based on brain-science & psychology.
Plus, we are young, fun and relatable!
