A refreshingly new approach on development as well as coaching by harnessing neuroscience with mindfulness and meditation. Innovative approach to online self paced learning accompanied by self reflection and reinforcement exercises and knowledge tests. Definitely worth the investment in not just your coaching skillset, but your own self awareness and development journey.

Fascinating. One of the best trainings I’ve ever had! Super relevant for 2021 challenges and ahead. The concepts of breakthrough neuroscience so well connected with the power of training your mind - simply blew up my mind. Imagine from one day to another you suddenly earn a superpower that allows you to hack your body and mind towards a fulfilling life and work. A superpower that also helps you help others earn their superpowers. Thank you!

Oksana Staniszewska

Former Global CPO Amrest, Poland

What a gift and inspiration! Amazing amount of insights, inspiration, positive energy and actionable advice with a potential to transform people lives. Deeply grateful! Vero, Arnaud, you inspire people to Spread their Wings!

Alina Perrin

CEO Serman Insight, France

We are at a crucial moment of the human mankind history: we are all becoming digital. And we have the choice between losing our humanity or strengthening what makes us deeply unique. Knowing how to use this marvelous machine that is our brain is the best and the non-negotiable skill for the future. This course answers precisely to this need by explaining the why and how of feelings and emotions on one hands, and of cognitive performances on the other hands. Great way of approaching these topics! Well done!

Florina Cioaga

Financial Modeler | M&A Specialist | Coach, Orange Money Romania

I am truly grateful that you made this great effort in making available such valuable information and for sharing your wisdom with us. I’ve already started using the information acquired for my own well-being. I truly believe that when putting something in practice, we must first start with ourselves. Thus, the effect of our own results will attract others and they’ll be keen to find out more about us and what we have to share with the world. Being mindful, present and having patience with ourselves are key for our physical and mental health. We must be able to take care of ourselves first, so we can help others. My intention is to enhance my coaching practice by using this valuable information acquired through the NeuroMindfulness course with which I strongly resonate.

Irina Doiciu

Employer Branding & Communication Manager, Leroy Merlin

The NeuroMindfulness course is one I took with great pleasure! It is full of information, clearly structured and simply explained. The combination between brain essentials, mindful practices and daily activities makes you understand why it is so important (especially during the times we go through) to stop, breath and gain perspective. The course makes you understand why some things happen the way they do and how to change them. I recommend it to professionals who can make a difference and chance, piece by piece, the world we live in. Thank you, Veronica & Arnaud!

Hanna Hieronimczuk

General Manager,

Dear Veronica and Arnaud, thank you for amazing journey of NMCC course. I have learned something that is meaningful. Something that is life changing, not only mine, but also and specially coworkers, friends & clients.

Alexandru Balan

Technical Lead & Senior Technical Support Engineer with German, IBM

NMCC course helps you find out more about yourself, and others, by teaching you in depth, how we really act, think, "work" as human beings. It is extraordinary well explained and organized, letting no spot untouched, or no stones unturned as Arnold Schwarzenegger was saying. Everybody should learn and receive this kind of knowledge in life.

Philippe Gillet

Worldline UK & Ireland

I found the NeuroMindfulness training interesting and insightful. Veronica and Arnaud have joined their diverse knowledge and experiences to explain how and why simple tools like breathing techniques, gratitude, meditation, mindfulness, compassion (and more) can help us be more resilient, interact better with our self and others, and simply feel better. This is supported by results of global researchers and clear explanations on how our brain works and which parts are activated while using these tools. It makes you understand that you can be in control of your emotions, actions, and the positive impact of those tools on your wellbeing. I started using these tools in a personal and professional context, and I have already seen the benefits.

Ramona Palcus

Project Manager for European Commission, D&I Ambassador, Internal Coach, IBM

I am very grateful to Veronica and Arnaud for sharing their wisdom with us and offering so much valuable information concentrated in this course. The powerful insights, new mindfulness and breathing techniques learned, neuroplasticity, tiny habits implemented, the awareness of defensive mechanisms I was hiding behind, building trust and connection especially when we are facing this pandemic context, are some of the takeaways that I can’t wait to use them in all of my roles (mother, partner, friend, daughter, coach, mentor, project manager). I highly recommend this course, as a gift that you can make for your transformation, well-being, mindset shift and a difference that you can make in the world. It is all about touching lives.
