"What do you really want? ’Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined." - Henry David Thoreau
- Have you struggled to achieve your goals in the past?
- Do you want to look forward to each day because of the possibilities you know it holds?
- Do you want to know where you are going and how you are going to get there?
- Do you want to be an authentic leader, that leads others with the skills you’ve developed?
- Do you want to bring an energy and unflagging enthusiasm to your work?
Having goals is the fundamental key to success but the challenge is in achieving them. You have possibly set objectives for yourself, your career or business, targets to hit, standards to meet and exceed, but too often, these are not achieved and you fail to reach your goals.
Generating an intention, as in goal setting is important but research has shown that that process alone isn't enough to get you to take all the actions necessary to achieve them. If goals are not set at a conscious level in the brain, you are very unlikely to achieve them. That is why many set goals but never quite achieve them.
We now know that there is a strong scientific basis for how and why mental practice works.
Having an imagery brings clarity to your dreams and helps you stay focused when you get sidetracked or stressed. It reminds you of what really matters on your journey.
This eToolkit will take you through the steps to set compelling 'SMARTEST' Goals and teach you the science of using your brain optimally to enable you achieve your goals, build mental resilience, lead yourself and others more effectively.
The orbitofrontal cortex region in the brain is responsible for converting goals into habits, through the neural messengers known as endocannabinoids, which are also responsible for modulating memory, appetite and moods.
Science shows that up to 90% of what we do as adults is influenced by subconscious patterns created from childhood and past experiences.It’s time to step up and take back control of your life - actually live life on your own terms and experience unhindered confidence.
Do you know exactly how you feel about yourself in terms of where you are going and where you want to be?
Sometimes, people spend a lot more time deciding about some aspects of their lives than they do about other aspects.
Some put a lot of thought (and money) into their wardrobe, for example, or the music that they buy or the car that they drive.
When it comes to big life questions, though, they take a more relaxed approach, stating that they’ll take whatever job that comes along.
They may tell you that they took a university degree because the program accepted their application, not because they considered the kind of life or career they wanted to create and chose a school based on those criteria.
For some others, the thought of actually setting goals and achieving them is daunting, especially if you have never gone through an exercise like this before.
But we’re pretty certain that people who do go through these kinds of activities regularly (including setting, achieving, and revising their goals), are more content with their lives than the people who sit back and let things happen.
As you are here on this site shows that you are ready to make a decision to take this course.
Your mission is to make the best possible choices, plan appropriate massive actions to achieve them and overcome the obstacles on the way. Goals allow you set the direction to create the future you desire.This toolkit will help you reflect on what’s happened in your past and show you how to renew your mindset, change your actions and outcomes after previous setbacks and struggles.
Most importantly, it offers you a chance to reset and start helpful behaviour patterns, explore new opportunities and start moving toward your desired goals.

The day was expertly led and delivered, with a depth of scientific knowledge and effective communication to make the subject matter accessible to all. Highly recommended.”K. Woods - NHS Kent

I am a NeuroLeadership and Resilience trainer, speaker and mentor. I leverage on recent research, on the Neuroscience of how the brain works to empower leaders, educators, women in leadership and business owners to unlock their potential, maximise performance and build high performing teams, organisations and lives.
My philosophy is centred on the principle that leaders can achieve high performance, increase productivity, fast results and high team engagement by having the tools to develop high emotional intelligence, replace limiting beliefs and thoughts with enabling ones, understand behaviour preferences, be more adaptable, more innovative and more resilient. This can be achieved by making the brain work optimally and becoming a Conscious Leader.
Having worked in senior leadership and management positions in different sectors, I have also successfully run my own businesses in the Education, IT and Hospitality sectors. I had the opportunity to also work on various Medical Research projects over the years.
I am very passionate about supporting leaders to use insights from Neuroscience to see into your blind spot, expand your vision and more effectively influence outcome, release resistance, build more emotional agile teams and mobilise the entire organisation quickly and efficiently to a clear and common goal of excellence.
