Science   I   Passion   I   Impact

Hi! I'm Els Compernolle, founder of HumanInsight.

I'm fascinated by human behaviour and the plasticity of our brain. After graduating as a Bio Engineer at the University of Leuven, I ventured abroad for a good while: 11 years to be precise. I studied behavioural economics at the University of Cambridge and lectured at the London School of Economics and University College Dublin. I worked as a senior policy advisor in London, Dublin and Brussels. 

For HumanInsight I incorporate the latest knowledge from behavioural economics, neurosciences and cognitive psychology in evidence-based training and consultancy, that is geared towards maximal impact.

Our clients are our best ambassadors: they consistently review our work very positively, with a mean satisfaction score of 8,8.
