Dr Ann Villiers is Australia's only Mental Nutritionist® and a sense-making specialist, focusing on mind and language practices that enable people to think flexibly, speak confidently and build quality connections.

Ann has more than 20 years experience working in sense-making roles including senior manager, marketer, corporate communicator, educator and author. Having guided teams through major strategic changes, enticed people to take difficult decisions and influenced audiences to change their behaviours, she has figured out some of the mysteries of how we can take charge, tackle challenges and make things happen.

Ann guides people to achieve:
- a deeper level of understanding of themselves and others so they can build connections, anticipate misunderstandings, influence and persuade.
- greater insight into personal thinking practices and its impact on work performance.
- stronger bids for a new job or career change.
