At Stellar Labs we have found a way to solve the skills gap backed by science and research to achieve the best performance and return on investment. Learners are energised and engaged to master high-demand skills and capabilities.
Before Stellar Labs’ story started in 2019, co-founders Raf Seymus and Stella Collins were on separate paths leading to the same goal.
Raf was the entrepreneur whose passion for talent development and technology had seen him start a business in 2014 devoted to accelerating the careers of young people in IT, science and engineering. When he sold Exellys six years later, it was a multi award-winning company with a multi-million euro turnover.
Stella, known as a Brain Lady, was an expert on the practical application of science-based learning. She had trained thousands of professionals in brain friendly principles in more than 20 years in L&D and was the author of Kogan Page’s bestseller “Neuroscience for Learning and Development”.
Stella’s ground-breaking book and their passion for people and performance brought Raf and Stella together. Raf had already planned the name for his new company before they met.
And so it seems the future of Stellar Labs was written in the stars.
In his previous company, Raf had identified an ever growing skills gap in the technology sector and was searching for the answer. When he read Stella’s book, he knew she would be the perfect person to partner with on this venture.
Together, they created a hybrid methodology to upskill digital sector workers and beat the technological skills crunch. Today, Stellar Labs is the home of science based training. We use cutting edge, evidence-based techniques that get results – every time.
We know what makes the difference between good and great. Let us show you how to join the learning revolution!
This group of international experts validate our methodology and business plan. They believe in our methodology and mission. We can stand on the shoulders of giants.
Together with Edubron, the research department for social sciences and education from the University of Antwerp, we are conducting research that has three objectives:
Optimize the feedback dialogue between mentor and trainee
Measure the added value of programmatic assessment
Identify individual patterns of learning and transfer using a combination of learning analytics and offline behavioral observations to gain insights into the learning process.
We collaborate with a cross-sector of industry experts to achieve this goal.
This research project is backed by VLAIO (Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship).
We are active members of international learning and technology networks. All our work is powered by cutting edge research. We drive performance through evidence based learning.
All our designers are certified by the institute for learning transfer and we guarantee a transfer from learning environment to working environment. Our trainings are accredited by ITOL, the Institute of Training and Occupational Learning.

Mirjam Neelen and Stella Collins discuss the best ways to change behaviour, improve performance and increase return on investment to make learning more effective and enjoyable.
Stella was keen to dig into how Don Taylor thinks learning tech is evolving, and what he thinks has changed since he wrote his book, Learning Technologies in the Workplace.
