Barbara Prashnig, MA, CEO
My Motto: "Know yourself and develop your full learning potential".
My shortened biography:
In home country of Austria I was a teacher/trainer for 17 years, have a double MA degree in Educational Sciences and English; taught at primary schools, high schools and as the youngest professor in Austria, I taught at a Teacher Training College for seven years. I have written several books about learning, teaching and style diversity.
Then I migrated to New Zealand with my family and lived there for 25 years. With my company in Auckland I developed revolutionary software for online assessment instruments which are now available in ten different languages.
I have successfully introduced my pioneering concept of style differences in working, learning and teaching into schools and business organisations, not only in NZ but also around the world: from the UK to China, from the US and Canada to Europe and Australia.
My great passion is helping students of all ages to recognize their learning potential through Learning Styles, overcome learning difficulties and become successful in academic learning and exams again. This also helps to reduce learning stress in families and improves communication between children and their parents.
