Here is an overview of his presentations:

Is My Teenager Crazy? A Tour Through the Adolescent Brain’ - Sometimes they’re bored, disengaged, and unmotivated. Other times they’re risky, unpredictable, and emotionally volatile.  What is going on with teenagers!?  During this session, we will explore the brain, how it develops, and how things change during adolescence and early adult-hood.  Through fun, interactive activities, we will learn how (and why) teenagers think differently than adults and consider ways we can support them academically, emotionally, and cognitively.

‘Stop Talking, Start Influencing - The Neuroscience of Pitching & Presenting’ - This fun and engaging session will explore the foundations of how people think, learn, and remember.  From this, we will consider ways to change/improve pitches, presentations, and employee training to ensure our message sticks with and truly impacts others.  Once you understand how people think, then you can truly work to inspire and influence them.

'Your Brain, Your Life' - How does the brain work to make sense of reality, and what impact does this have on teaching & learning?  During this engaging and interactive session, we will explore the often counterintuitive foundations of thinking, the power of stories to drive perception, the role errors play in comprehension, and consider how these three concepts tie together to drive student learning.
