Provision Research and Events in Association with the Neuro Business Institute bring you the Neuroscience Training for the first time in South Africa. We also provide in house training solutions tailor made to suite your organisation’s goals.

Who is NBI?

NBI is a pioneering Institute which can help to improve your organization’s brand, and grow the thinking and innovative practices of your personnel. That means greater profit, market penetration, greater insight into the minds and potential of your staff coupled to their satisfaction. They are then geared to unite with common drive and loyalty to support your vision.

What is Neuroscience?

Neuroscience is a science field which grew generously from combined studies of psychology, engineering, economics, medicine, sociology and biology. The human brain has food, survival and sexual rewards at its core. Thanks to the seminal studies of Daniel Kahneman and Amos Twersky amongst others, we have discovered that the latter rewards translate easily into the business world.  It has been shown to drive decision making, risk taking, consumer psychology, strategic thinking and the growth of major industries.

Individuals in business seek to understand their own thinking blueprints, successes and failures, patterns of behaviour and personal mindset. Understand neuro-economics and the herding behaviour that drives the pursuit of financial rewards as well as shareholder behaviour of listed companies. Discover how the design of your office curbs creative thought. Discover why some leaders have a following and others are avoided.
