Born and raised in the country of his great role model Nelson Mandela, Dr. Andre Vermeulen has lived most of his life in South Africa. Having traveled the globe, Andre decided to relocate to Denver, Colorado.

Dr. Andre Vermeulen is regarded as a pioneer in the neuroscience of workplace learning and performance optimization. He has developed a sought after brain profile assessment called the Learning Receptiveness Profile™ (LRP™) that is used across the globe in businesses, schools and universities to identify learning potential and optimize performance. The LRP is a unique predictive analysis of people’s neurological design and the drivers that optimize their brain performance. As a thought leader in the neuroscience of learning, he has contributed on influential platforms like TEDx, ATD and the University of Pretoria Neuroscience Group. He strives to live by his motto to Out-Think, Out-Learn and Out-Create the competition. André wants to see a revolution in the way people think and moreover, in the way that they learn, as learning is the only way to survive the 21st century and thrive.

Andre is passionate about people development through neuroscience. He is a regular keynote speaker at conferences across the globe, where he contributes fresh insights into the neuroscience of learning, talent development and performance improvement. In his own words, Andre says, “Neuroscience proves there is no limitation to whom we as human beings and organizations can be if we accurately understand, develop and utilize the brain’s potential. All institutions responsible for developing others should be aware of how the neuroscience of learning can help them do this.”

Andre has a reputation as the executive coach of choice to a variety of A-list individuals such as, Olympic Champions, Beauty Pageants, Kings & Queens of Africa and CEO’s/C-suite Executives of global corporations. He has also been the guest of numerous radio and television talk shows across the globe and hosts his own television program – Breinkrag (Mind Power).

RECOMMENDATIONS
  • It is my firm belief that the Neuro-Link Learning Receptiveness Profile (LRP) is an invaluable tool from which all athletes and business people can benefit immensely. I believe the better one knows oneself the more successful you will be in maximizing your potential both in sport and life. The LRP gave me greater clarity on how I process information and specifically how stress impacts my unique neurological design and thereby potentially hinders my performance. This information now empowers me to learn how to better manage myself under pressure and improve my brain optimization.

    I believe the LRP is a great tool for both coaches and athletes. There is no relationship more vital to success in sport than the coach – athlete relationship and this profile gives huge insight into how each person functions best and what teaching styles work most effectively on the individual, thus empowering the coach to most effectively communicate information to the athlete and thereby attaining greater success. The LRP profile has further proved vital in my post athletic professional life as now my business partner and I better understand each other, our unique differences and how to best work as a team, thus increasing our productivity and hence attaining greater success.

  • I was introduced to Dr. Andre’ through a TEDx talk after tirelessly watching every video and reading every book I could find on the subject of brain-based therapy. I immediately reached out to him and the very next day my husband and I had the pleasure of experiencing both his brain profiles personally. After working very closely with Dr. Andre’ to bring his innovative assessments to the USA, I am honored to say that he is not only one of the most brilliant minds I’ve ever met; he is a humble, generous, trustworthy, and lives with great intention and purpose. His system of “developing people” is like nothing I have ever seen. I am not only one of his first licensed USA Neuro-link practitioners and offer it in my private practice, I jumped on the opportunity to become one of his first USA business partners as well. Dr. Andre’ has developed a program that changes standard learning into so much more. It gives everyone an opportunity to reach their highest potential; in school, at work, or in life. Thank you Dr. Andre’ for your dedication to advancing the awareness on a subject that is sometimes overlooked. Your work is so necessary, but more than that it gives people the ability to go from surviving to thriving!

  • A “life-changing experience” is how I can best describe meeting Andre. Authenticity, expertise, curiosity, excitement for discovering and developing people’s potential, love for others, desire to contribute, spiritual wisdom, and above all PASSION for his calling are just few words in an attempt to describe who he is and what he gives so generously to those he encounters in his personal and professional path. Indeed, Andre is an outstanding example of a leader and an authority in the field of neuroscience; a man with mission that inspire people like me to become his partner, to join a vision in which individuals are aware of their potential and learn how to break the barriers to be the best they can be. Thus, I recommend my Teacher, Partner, and Friend, Dr. Andre Vermeulen to a professional or a business leader wanting to discover how neuroscience can be a solution to assess and develop human potential.

He is dedicated, serious about his work, outgoing, and a wealth of knowledge. Any company who contracts him, or anyone who attends one of his presentations, is lucky indeed.

First, Andre is an excellent presenter. Informative, entertaining, practical. Second, Andre pulls together research from a topic that many of us have a hard time understanding and helps it make sense. Third, he keeps information and knowledge current, constantly integrating the latest research. I highly recommend Andre.

  • Brain Profiling is the ultimate tool to assist learners, corporates and individuals to find the real “you”. This profile is highly accurate and strengths based. Each and every learner should undergo the Neuro-Link Learning Receptiveness Profile to assist them in becoming even better at learning. Brain Profiling is a simple proven process to turn study frustrations into academic achievement. Corporates and adult individuals use this tool with success discover their strengths and areas for further development in all areas of their lives. The Neuro-Link Brain Profile changed my life in terms of my profession, marriage and relationship with others. I witness daily how learners just ‘gets it’ after doing this highly recommended profile.

Learners in high school can make use of it to help them make subject choices. It is a tool that all schools should be using.
