About Us


Switch On is a trail-blazing leadership and personal development company focused on supporting individuals and enterprises to break through limitations and blockages to forge a thriving future for us all.

We leverage our unique, rigorous and brain-based creativity, innovation and transformation methodology – called Breakthrough Biodynamics™ – to unleash conscious change in leaders, their teams, organizations and regular people all over the world. Our methodology has been 25 years in the making.

Our vision is to use this methodology to cultivate and support enlightened, empowered and engaged leaders at every level of society to drive breakthrough changes that maximize thriving and reduce suffering in their companies, communities and families.

Our corporate unit, Switch On Leadership, is a hybrid leadership development, business transformation and innovation consultancy. We provide next-level leadership development and innovation thinking, tools and programs that are all underpinned by Breakthrough Biodynamics™. Our programs act as a direct source of strategic, systemic and sustainable breakthroughs, whether in products, processes or people. Formerly an independent business founded in 2005 by author, international keynote speaker and strategic leadership advisor Nick Jankel, we have worked with clients such as Nike, Intel, Unilever, Genentech, Smucker’s, Oxfam, WWF, Novartis and many more to forge the future of their industries.

Our personal development unit, Switch On Life is a personal development practice that works with individuals, couples, parents and families all over the world to transform their problems into possibilities and embed change into their everyday life. All our workshops, online products and individual sessions are underpinned by Breakthrough Biodynamics™. Formerly an independent business founded in 2008 by author, philosopher and international keynote speaker Nick Jankel and transformation teacher and therapist Alison McAulay, we have touched the lives of over 3 million people worldwide.

Together, both of our business units operate as a social enterprise, with the majority of our profits reinvested in our core purpose: To spread breakthrough tools and techniques to places where they can drive systemic change. Our current focus is on shifting political and civic leaders towards connection, creativity and collaboration; subsidizing vital work in sustainable leadership and sustainable innovation with our partners, the Green Building Council; and developing scaleable tools to transform young people disadvantaged and marginalized communities so they can create solutions to their own problems and lead positive change.
