Speaking dates

Speaking season seems to be upon us again and there are a number of upcoming events where we will be speaking or running workshops. These include:

• The NeuroBusiness 2015 Conference Wednesday, June 2015 at The Renold Building, Manchester University where we will deliver a sessin on ‘How the brain informs the design and delivery of change plans’

• The Knowledge and Innovation Network (KIN) Summer 2015 Members’ Workshop in Streatley on Thames where we will be discussing ‘The Neuroscience of how the brain works and what this means for how we create, store & retrieve ‘knowledge’

• The CIPD Science of Human Behaviour at Work Conference in September where we will run an all-day workshop on Day 2 (23rd) on Using neuroscience and psychology to build better leaders

As well as these public sessions we are also doing a number of similar engagements at organisations’ internal conferences (management, human resources). If you would be interested in us speaking at your event, or, as we prefer to do, running a workshop, then please get in touch.

CIPD Annual Conference, Manchester, November 5th and 6th

 

The CIPD Annual Conference is being held in Manchester on November 5th and 6th and we will be presenting at it on both days.  On the 5the we will co-deliver a session at the exhibition that will highlight the CIPDs new report (due for publication in late October) on the application of neuroscience in the real world.  The research is intended to cut through the ‘neuro-hype’ and showcase where neuroscience can make a genuine difference, and add real value for individuals and organisations.  The report should shed some welcome, objective light on this area.  On the 6th we are delivering a workshop at the conference called ‘Designing Learning Initiatives Using Neuroscience’ (W5, 09.30 -12.00 if you want to attend).  In the workshop we will cover:

  • an introduction to neuroscience in relation to learning and development
  • how neuroscience can inform the architecture, content and delivery of L&D
  • a practical approach to assessing existing programmes and materials for ‘brain friendliness’.

By attending the session you will take away:

  •  examples of using neuroscience principles to plan, manage and embed learning
  • ideas on how to incorporate neuroscience into the design and delivery of L&D offerings
  • a ‘gap analysis’ of how ‘brain friendly’ your current L&D offerings are.
