Etienne is an accomplished neurologist and an authority in applied behavioral neuroscience. Etienne’s 14-year career as a clinical neurologist means he has a deep understanding of the anatomy, biology, and physiology of the brain and the human nervous system.
In more recent years, his professional and personal fascination with the remarkable discoveries coming from the various brain sciences has led him to believe in the vast potential of this new knowledge to enhance human capacity. The realization of this vision is the founding of Neurozone®, a neuroscience business dedicated to applying brain science, analytics, and coaching to enhance human capacity.
Etienne has developed a keen understanding of the neurobiological substrates, principles, and insights that underpin team and organizational performance. This knowledge enables Etienne to blend a variety of subjects into an integrated whole for practical application. Etienne is the founder of AmazingBrainz™, an organization dedicated to designing programs for the brain stimulation of young, developing children – especially in disadvantaged communities.
Etienne worked as a neurologist in South Africa, the UK, and the Netherlands. As an avid keynote speaker and masterclass teacher, Etienne engages with senior leaders, where the individual, team, and organizational resilience and optimizing human capacity takes center stage.
In addition to his Medical and Clinical Neurology degrees, Etienne also holds BSc degrees in Chemistry, Mathematical Statistics, as well as Integrated Physiology and Virology.
