Boosting your brain.

Our decisions are more powerful than our DNA.

Dr Helena doesn’t just deliver compelling presentations, she creates life-changing experiences.

She brings an audience to life with her incisive health messages, razor-sharp insights and dynamic delivery. She shows how great health is not a distant decision - it’s a daily decision. And great health is your great advantage because it’s very rare. Ninety-five percent of employees underperform in the workplace because they’re not in great health. They might not be overtly sick but they’re not as healthy as they could be. This impacts dramatically on their productivity and on the bottom line. If you want to get ahead, get healthy - because everyone else is moving in the opposite direction.

Current Work

Dr Helena is a medical doctor, leading authority on improving brain function, bestselling author and international speaker. She graduated from the University of Sydney and she believes in slow ageing despite fast living.

Her mission is to educate rather than to medicate and she’s passionate about teaching people how to live longer, stronger, healthier and happier.

Dr Helena is Founder of the Centre for Excellent Health and Ambassador for The Gut Foundation of Australia. She was also a Sydney TEDx Fast Ideas finalist and her book NeuroSlimming won Bronze medal in the international Living Now Awards for its contribution to positive global change.

You can hear Dr Helena presenting Healthy Bites on ABC radio Brisbane and Gold Coast every Thursday afternoon.

Helena's presentation was incredibly inspiring. Her approach towards 'Let Healing Happen' was full of wit, empathy, energy, and hope. She is an engaging speaker and I would highly recommend her. Jean Colvin Cancer Centre

I invited Helena Popovic to speak at the recent Sphinxx Ascend Development Day series and received fantastic feedback from the audience on her presentation. Helena wowed participants with her knowledge of physiological wellbeing, peak performance and brain plasticity... and if you're scratching your head at these terms, don't worry: you will be enlightened by Helena's presentation. She's a funny, intelligent and polished speaker and I recommend her to any audience that seeks to perform at its best.


Helena is the most extraordinary person I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I have never known anyone who is so positive about everything they undertake, and her enthusiasm for everything she does is infectious. She throws herself into her work with passion and drive and she has the unique ability to motivate, captivate and inspire those around her. I find her spirit uplifting. Anything is possible with energy and enthusiasm. Helena is a testament to that. She is a truly inspiring individual.

I've seen Helena three times now (twice at a Chamber event and once at one of our events) and I can only highly recommend her. Her message is absolutely meaningful and her delivery is fabulous, energetic and fun.

I know that our executive team and board members enjoyed it, too. So, thanks so much and I hope to see you again.


We were so pleased to have Dr Helena present the closing keynote at our Independents’ Day conference. The audience of around 300 business owners were glued to their seats in one of the finest presentations I have seen in years. Helena is skilled, highly polished, engaging and eminently practical in her delivery. Thank you!

When I think ‘Dr Helena Popovic’ I think energising, entertaining, empowering.
