Sam has been a trainer and educator for over 38 years. His recent retirement as an Executive Teacher has given him the opportunity to follow his passion as a Neuroeducator. His style of educating and training swings between guide / coach / counsellor / life-coach and instructor as he draws upon a vast repertoire of life experiences to lead people to be their best. He is only interested in what works in the real world to make individuals, teams, classrooms, faculties and organisations responsive, dynamic and effective. Sam is endlessly excited about the educational implications of Brain Science - in particular 'volition', 'neuroplasticity' and 'epigenetics'. His particular interest is in Response Ability Training (RAT). His RAT Race Ready program will be available mid 2015 where his focus will be into the Adult & Juvenile Corrections systems.
