Do you desire to make a real difference,
being able to generate unique and powerful offerings
that separate you from the mainstream?

​So much of what is presented as new is just repackaging what is already known. Great. There is a place for making application of knowledge and saying what is known in new ways.​

But, if we are to solve the world’s most ‘wicked problems’ we need next order thinking to do this. We need our leaders to be true thought leaders. This requires us to generate new knowledge.

​There are many people that yearn to make a difference in the world - to truly disrupt the status quo and the current paradigms society operates within.

But sadly, very few actually do.

And it’s not because they don’t earnestly devote their time, energy, and other resources to the causes they care about.

It’s simply because they don’t have a methodology like Neuro-Behavioural Modelling to consistently create new intellectual property for breakthroughs in human capability.

Neuro-Behavioural Modelling – the science of ‘how’ – is
essential for true Change Agents & Thought Leaders


​Neuro-Behavioural Modelling (NBM) offers you an unparalleled advantage to achieve breakthroughs and true transformation in human behaviour and performance.

NBM enables you to identify and replicate the unconscious processes underpinning the talent and expertise of top performers and role models of all forms of human excellence. With NBM, you can develop highly tailored neuro-competency profiles of extraordinary achievers and leaders, attain a deep understanding of your customer’s buying psychology, and develop highly effective and practical applications for breakthroughs in personal, organisational, community and whole-system change.

Learn to enable higher levels of wisdom in decision-making and ways of ‘Being’ to support future generations


IBI is hosting Marvin Oka, the leader in the field for the past 3 decades, to facilitate this powerful pilot program on Professional Neuro-Behavioural Modelling for transformational change agents.

Marvin is the developer of the Professional Neuro-Behavioural Modelling methodology and recognises how the need for a radical shift in our collective consciousness is becoming ever more pressing. Marvin is passionate about creating a collaborative network of Professional Neuro-Behavioural Modellers that support each other in leading and enabling second-order, transformative change in society.

The focus of this pilot program is to enable you to learn how to use Marvin’s Professional Neuro-Behavioural Modelling methodology to create breakthrough intellectual property that you can commercialise in a multitude of ways that are unique to your personal-professional brand, and to be part of a collaborative, working network of transformational Professional Neuro-Behavioural Modellers.

"This foundation course in Neuro-Behavioural Modelling research is magnificent! It puts together what I've previously learned about human behaviour on a much larger canvas. It gives me a lot more generative ideas about how to enable generative learning in my workplace and how to actually put in place the stepping stones for transformation at work, as well as across other areas I'm interested in. It's amazing and has given me the permission to be curious and creative, and how to plan on a much larger canvas and engage the genius of many others, which before, I only had a fragmented idea about. I'm v ery excited about the opportunities here."

Go beyond regurgitating others’ existing content.
Create new intellectual property that is uniquely yours
and makes a powerful difference.


This pilot program is designed to help you do just that. It is about learning a structured process - the ‘how to’ - of generating new knowledge. New knowledge for breakthroughs in human performance, ways of thinking, and accessing new levels of consciousness.

Imagine knowing how to identify and facilitate the natural processes that the brain uses to generate epiphanies, to connect the dots it had never connected before, to evolve its levels of self-awareness and consciousness, and to engage in true 2nd Order change.

​1st Order change maintains an existing system.
2nd Order change transforms and evolves the system or paradigm itself.


1st Order change is basically like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. It might make you feel better while you’re doing it, but does it actually make a difference long-term?

At best, it improves upon the existing system, paradigm or way of thinking. There are countless programs like that: after much money has been spent, time and effort has been put in, not much permanent and qualitative change has occurred. At worst, 1st order change perpetuates a bad system and makes it even harder for real change to work.

And it is not the fault of those trying to lead or instigate those changes. They often have good aspirations, but what they don’t have is a way to create generative and transformational insights and methods that actually make a systemic and behavioural difference, so they often repackage and repurpose what everybody else has previously done. And while it is sellable, it effectively dumbs-down society and maintains the status quo.

A lot of people apply the label ‘transformation’ regardless
of whether it is transformational not.


And it’s simply because they aren’t educated enough to actually know the difference. And it’s no fault of their own. Practical and clear methods for leading systemic 2nd Order change have never been explicitly coded until Marvin Oka began his Neuro-Behavioural Modelling research work in this area over 30 years ago.

Using his NBM research methodology, Marvin has also developed a learning methodology for accessing new levels of consciousness called Generative Learning. He has combined both of these methodologies along with systems thinking to create new models, frameworks, and methods of leading and facilitating real transformational, 2nd Order change. This combined approach is unique to Marvin’s work and it is what you will learn in this pilot program.

​If you are thinking of doing this program and you haven’t trained with Marvin Oka before, then this is an absolute “must do” experience you need to have.

Marvin doesn’t just teach highly useful content. His teaching styles includes guiding you through practical discussions and processes that allow you to achieve the outcomes that you are looking for as well as enabling you to make 2nd order changes in your own life through creating a rich collaborative system. His fluid style also ensures that he provides each participant what they need based on their outcome and the additional support and resources he provides are a testament to the value he holds of truly being of service to you.

There are so many nuggets of gold in what Marvin teaches that are important for not only gaining one’s outcomes but also as principles in life.

Less than two weeks after completing the Neuro-Behavioural Modelling Certification, I had a model that I used to create content that was used in a pilot 3-day Leadership Conference that I held in Bali. The transformations that my participants experienced as a result of the content that I created as a result of attending Marvin’s course has been so powerful that many of the participants are keen to book into next year’s retreat. The immediate ROI alone serve as just one of the benefits that I experienced.

This program exceeded my expectations and I will be re-attending this course over and over again, just to experience the wisdom, knowledge and energy that Marvin has to share and I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is wanting to model, experience or learn from a true game changer and master in the field.”

Neuro-Behavioural Modelling provides the leverage for intentional 2nd order change.


Neuroscientists agree that only a very small percentage of our behaviours originate from our conscious mind. The majority of our behaviours originate beneath the level of our awareness - in our unconscious. This is why you can’t just tell people to change and expect that they will.


Real 2nd Order change doesn’t occur by telling to people’s conscious minds ‘what’ they need to do. Instead, it requires facilitating the unconscious processes that drive human behaviour, motivations, perceptions, ways of thinking, levels of consciousness and ways of Being. It is this level of deep knowledge and insight that is ‘the difference that makes the difference’, and as to whether your efforts will result in 1st or 2nd Order change.

Neuro-Behavioural Modelling is a specialised research methodology for making conscious the breakthrough human competencies that are typically unconscious.


NBM uncovers the hidden internal processes underpinning any specific form of human ability, talent, or competency. Once these behavioural processes have been identified, you can then develop practical methods to transfer those skills and abilities to others.

Examples of behavioural modelling research areas include transformational leadership skills, complex decision-making, strategic and systemic thinking, high-influence communications, physical skills (sports, dance, performing arts, etc.), people/relationship skills, personal growth and self-evolution, and more.

If you want to MOVE BEYOND what’s already known and exists in your field, then this is the program for you.


This pilot program is for people passionate about moving their industry forward in novel and game-changing ways. People who want to make a genuine contribution to the world in the form of powerful and life-changing offerings to the communities and markets they serve.

This pilot program is not for people satisfied with the status quo, who are simply looking to ‘do’ another program for personal development, or are more interested in quick ‘hacks’ and simple procedures. Instead, this program is for serious 2nd Order change agents who are committed to doing the work required to develop deep professional competencies for making a difference.

Ever feel like you’re pushing sh*t uphill by yourself?


Time for a change! Real transformational work requires the support of others, and now you can get excited about having a collaborative network that speaks the same language for transformation along with a shared methodology to keep making powerful breakthroughs!

​"This is something that is really unique. It actually really does make a difference and makes you stand out rather than just being another fish in the sea. Marvin makes decades of information so accessible, understandable and tangible to apply. I actually think Neuro-Behavioural Modelling is going to be the next big thing that sweeps psychology and businesses. It's so exciting to be part of that first wave. I would highly recommend to anybody who's thinking about doing it to 'just do it'! It's going to change you and really propel you forward in your career."
