Welcome to Motivated Academic

We're glad to see you here!

Our mission

We believe early-career researchers and PhDs, like yourself, are extraordinary. We get up every morning to support you in doing what you do best – pushing the boundaries of the existing body of knowledge to solve global challenges. Everything we do is about inspiring and motivating you to work hard and smart while enjoying your work and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. We’re driven by seeing you achieve success because of us, whether that means a higher quality of outputs, more publications, project finished before a deadline or just more happiness in your life.

We do this by doing what we’re the best: employing our considerable academic and business expertise to help you bring your research to the next level. We work with you to offer the best frameworks and tools to boost your motivation, productivity and wellbeing, and personalised coaching and products to support your academic development.

Everything we do is thoughtfully focused on maximising your wellbeing, motivation and productivity as a researcher and academic. So whether you’re looking for personalised 1-to-1 coaching, support in writing academic papers or managing a research project, or just need a bit of inspiration to keep on pushing against the odds, we’ve got a solution tailored to your needs.
