Travis: The values make the mission statement itself. Claire: Nonprofits and startups alike tend to be so focused on output and programming that, Yes, some of this operational stuff can end up on the back burner, but unfortunately, what happens when you don't pay attention to some of those foundational elements is you cap the level of impact that you can create, so there you can only scale to a certain degree without having some of these systems and processes in place.

Your nonprofit can use new science as a tool to help others and to understand how the brain functions and learns.

Rachel: I grew up thinking that the brain could not change. Travis: We are not our thoughts. We are not our feelings. Rachel: We need to adapt the way we deliver information, adapt it to the learners of today. Rachel: How do we as adults, children, teenagers take control of our brains and manage ourselves.   Rachel Paling Bio Rachel Paling started teaching English as a Foreign Language to adults over 30 years ago and after obtaining a BA Honours in Law and Spanish (with distinction in spoken Spanish) at the University of Sheffield (UK), she went on to do a master’s in human Rights and Democratization (EMA) at the University of Padua, Italy and Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany. This concept called Neurolanguage Coaching emerged through her own experience of teaching languages over the past 34 years. This combined with her own experience of learning languages, namely French, Spanish, Italian, German, and some Catalan, with basics of Arabic and Russian and a hunger to learn more, such as Chinese. In 2019, Efficient Language Coaching and Neurolanguage Coaching® won the Re-Imagine Education Bronze award in the Science of Learning category. In March 2020, Rachel completed her Master’s in Applied Neuroscience and continues to study Neuroscience to develop and enhance her knowledge. In the same year, Brainz Magazine included me in their top 500 Companies, Entrepreneurs, Influential Leaders, and Business Owners who are recognized for their entrepreneurial success, achievements, or dedication to helping others. The following year, she was delighted to be awarded the Crea Global Award by Brainz Magazine. In addition, her own personal development as a life coach over 11 years and burning interest in what we are now discovering through modern neuroscience about the brain – and how the brain functions, reacts, and learns – have all contributed to the creation of this concept and method. Using this method, Rachel has trained over 1200 language teachers worldwide, certifying them as Neurolanguage Coaches – certified by taking our training courses which are some of the only language coaching certification courses in the world accredited by International Coach Federation USA. She now delivers this course to teachers of all disciplines with a vision to transform and enhance the learning process.

David Pisarek Bio David lives to break things - it all started when David was about 2 years old and his parent’s poor judgment. They bought him a tool kit. Yes, real metal tools, some of which he still uses to this day. One day while at his grandparent's house, David (2/3) was sitting in the hallway, playing with something on the wall. It turned out to be their phone jack. A week later, they had a working phone again - keep in mind that this was 1980/81, there was no other way to communicate without going and seeing people in person if you didn’t have a phone. David was always curious, from learning command lines to run games on the family Apple II computer, to taking apart electronics and putting them back together - they always worked afterward. This curious spark grew into a love of technology and gadgets. David started by learning how to work with graphics and build web pages in 1991. He worked in the dot-com era of 1999 as a senior developer - helping a startup e-commerce company raise $1M within 2-months before they went public on the TSX. He worked at a college and university for 11-years in their marketing and communications teams, then moved on to a hospital for nearly 5 years. In 2017, David decided that there has to be a better way to help the organizations dedicated to society. His company, Wow Digital Inc., designs and creates brands, websites, intranets, interactive kiosks, and even games for non-profit, NGO, charitable, and community-based organizations in Canada.
