“Pretty quickly in our selection process you set yourself apart from the crowd. Your understanding of the situations we described and exploration of solutions you could offer showed a superior grasp of your field that was at once both credible and engaging. During our consultancy session every single sentence was a nugget of gold. I’ve got pages of notes. We couldn’t have asked for more.“

“One of Amy’s differentiating factors is her ability to link real business problems to solutions…”

Amy Brann - Keynote Speaker -  Synaptic Potential

“I have had the opportunity to work with Amy for approximately a year and in that time she has proven to be very engaging regardless of whether talking to a senior global stakeholder or a junior professional. Amy is able to discuss a range of topics in a manner where she demonstrates deep knowledge and understanding of neuroscience yet translates this into a simple matter of fact way. She is articulate in her delivery and is able to build on ideas in a collaborative way. She is very responsive and provides high quality work in short periods of time. Finally for me, one of Amy’s differentiating factors is her ability to link real business problems to solutions.”

Everyone deserves to fulfill their Whole Brain Potential

Fact: Everyone deserves to fulfil their potential. But if you don’t know how your brain works, you can’t make it work better.

The Good News: Over the last few decades, neuroscience and behavioural science have been revealing how the brain works and how to make it work better.

Where We Come In. Synaptic Potential has translated this science into practical insights and habits that show your people how to make their brain work better.

So whether you have leaders that are struggling to break the status quo, a workspace that doesn’t inspire or that makes collaboration difficult, or policies that aren’t fully aligned with your people development trajectory, we have the solutions and strategies that will help you get on the right track for unlocking potential and delivering sustainable improvements in performance.
