Dr Auke Schade
My life started in The Netherlands during the devastation of the Second World War. As a teenager, I worked as a carpenter, while studying construction at night school. During the seventies, I became a financial manager for a multinational corporation, ran my own business, and studied economics in my spare time. Over time, my interest in the psychology of management extended to the interaction between the mind, body, and reality. In 1980, I immigrated to New Zealand where I obtained a doctorate in psychology from the University of Auckland. My mission is to make people the smartest thinkers they can be and this has led me to the development of nemonik thinking.
