Due Quach
Author of Calm Clarity: How to use Science to Rewire Your Brain for Greater Wisdom Fulfillment and Joy, one of Fast Company's 7 best business books of 2018.  

 

Due Quach (Zway Kwok) is a social entrepreneur and refugee from Vietnam who overcame the long-term effects of poverty and trauma by turning to neuroscience and developing “mind hacking” techniques.

These techniques enabled her to graduate from Harvard College and the Wharton MBA Program, build a successful career in management consulting and private equity investments, and now build pioneering social ventures.

To develop a program to empower people to overcome adversity and unlock their potential, Due studied various contemplative traditions in India and other parts of Asia. She then synthesized what she learned from this journey with neuroscience and behavioral economics to create the Calm Clarity Program.
