We take our knowledge from state-of-the art science and our understanding of scientific methods along with our experience in business, education, and mindfulness practice, and use it to help you develop your own individual skills and strategies that you need to take your life to the next level. Instead of giving you more common knowledge, we help you identify and develop the skillset of cognitive, emotional, and practical skills and apply them so that you yourself can transform your life and be at your best.
Everyone deserves to experience true love. We help you find and nurture your significant relationships.
In being different there is a strength that you can leverage. We help you discover and unleash your full potential.

“Dr. Nelly Nguyen is a rare professional. When working with her it is immediately clear that her brain works in overdrive. Her ability to quickly process information, learn new concepts, and generate creative ideas is breathtaking. Fortunately, her innate intelligence is not an “it’s-about-me” phenomenon. Instead, Nell has the ability to carefully listen, pay attention to subtle points of language and expression, and work collaboratively. As if all of that were not enough, Nell leads with her integrity. I have repeatedly been impressed with her desire and ability to reflect on her own practice to make certain that she is being responsible and ethical.”

Dr. Franz Huetter, BRAIN-HR Scientific Consulting & Training
“Prospectively, high performers with a track record of continuous transdisciplinary education will be urgently needed and highly sought after on the labor market. One of the promising ways of preparing for this anticipated future is to constantly challenge high potentials with multi-perspective input from academia and business in an intellectually enriched environment, allowing them to break old frameworks of thought and action and to build new ones. As leadership is increasingly based on thought leadership, think tanks that function according to this principle serve as incubators for the top performers of tomorrow. When such a think tank is led by an inspiring, energetic polymath like Dr Nelly Nguyen, the power and fascination of an exciting and promising future can already be felt today.”
