Ellen graduated in design and architectural history in 1991, and gained a masters degree in 1993. She first practised in communications to bridge the gaps in comprehension between design and other artistic fields and engineering and scientific technicians. In time her focus shifted from external to internal communications, to enable behavioural and cultural change. In 2016 Ellen qualified as a neuroscience trainer with Encephalon LLP, a US accreditation body. The unique application that Ellen has since developed combines communication skills with neuroscience techniques to create routes to positive acceptance of change and personal engagement with growth structures and process enhancement.
She has worked extensively on the practical application of neuroscientific techniques in leadership and management, change, corporate structure and culture maximisation. Her practical experience includes projects with Rolls-Royce Aerospace, Worldpay, Givaudan USA (with Fullemynd) and High Performance Sports Professionals.
In 2017 Ellen teamed with Ultra Electronics Ltd in a UK government funded special project to develop mind control technology for the UK military, and commences a PhD programme with three British Russell Group universities in 2018 to research the measurement of neuroscientific states.
