"Succes is a combination of talent, opportunities and communication."

Dr. Erik Matser

Talent is detectable, can be optimized and is the creative force in life. Knowing the opportunities to optimize talent and knowing how to communicate talent creates market leadership by competitive advantage.

Ignorance of the neuroscience creating talent kills life force and successful business. Talent optimization and burnout are two sides of the same coin.
