neuresource group: our-team-moto

We are scientists of our own experience…we challenge the disconnect between what science shows and business does. We do this in our own business. Our business is our lab for testing new ideas in the quest to build an extraordinary brain-friendly business.

This year we defined our intentions for how we are going to build our brain friendly organisation and developed our own “How we do it here” values. We think it is important to share this with you so you can also learn how to be scientists of your own experience.

We know it is our people that make us different. We have a diverse team of translators who are experts in translating the science into the ‘so what’.
