As the pace of technological change steps up over the coming decade, it will be even more important to understand how we can improve our mental resilience and ability to adapt. The advent of brain scanning has made it possible to gather empirical evidence on how the brain functions. The ability to understand this, as well as how our brain reacts to different situations, has significant impact not only for the world of work, but for human development more generally. Through this website, Tara hopes to use this knowledge and her experience to allow more people than ever to harness the full potential of their brains.
“All the things we want from life; health, happiness, wealth and relationships; are governed by your ability to think, feel and act, in other words, your brain. Knowing some simple, key facts about how your brain works and understanding the connection between the brain and body, makes it possible to train your brain to be successful in modern life and realise your greatest potential.” Tara Swart
Tara also sits on five advisory boards and councils and is a Brand Ambassador for Pack for a Purpose, a charity assisting travellers with making meaningful contributions to communities whilst they travel.
