Former competitive athlete, neuroscientist, best-selling author and leading expert in neuroscience as FLOW (being the “psychology of the optimal experience”) and neuro-marketing Marco Giannecchini is a very well-known transformational coach.

He believes the human species is capable of extraordinary things. More than any other known species, he believes that we have a breathtaking ability to grow, create, explore, love, and solve challenges. The key to awakening this potential is UNITY. We need to come together -which is in fact our natural state. Yet instead of uniting us, many of the systems, institutions, and beliefs governing the world today are dividing us.
He believes that the solution to that world lies in raising human consciousness. Which means evolving the way people learn, grow, work, and co-create. Inspired by Mandela’s quote, “If you want to change the world, change education” he set out to start a new type of education company, one focused on unifying the world and teaching transformational education – the things that truly matter for the human race: the FLOW CONSCIOUSNESS ACADEMY.
