50 SHADES OF GREY MATTER

A conference keynote which takes a fresh look at the brain and how it works and enlightens people, teams, educators and leaders to help them deliver more balanced working practices.

Popular science and some ill-informed media delight in playing up the differences between male and female brains. Stoking up the battle of the sexes can sometimes seem like a national past-time. Often it is done tongue in cheek, but the practice has potentially damaging consequences for workplaces, classrooms and beyond.

The truth about the similarities and differences between genders is much more fascinating than the falsehood, and this keynote explodes those myths and enlightens delegates using hilarity and interaction to explore the subject.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE UNCONSCIOUS AND CONSCIOUS HUMAN MIND

This keynote delves into human behaviour and takes a scientific look at the mind

Most people do not realise that we are hard-wired to prefer people who look like us, sound like us and share our interests. We make decisions that affect our lives and the people around us, based on deep sub-conscious processes. This is called unconscious bias and is one of the hottest topics in employment because it bypasses rational thinking and affects diversity and equality.

This keynote delves into human behaviour and takes a scientific look at the mind and the processes that happen within it. Delegates will discover how we learn to think, act, behave and communicate and gain a greater understanding of the processes that help and hinder development.

Growth Mindset

Conference keynotes for organisations

GROWTH MINDSET

This growth mindset keynote investigates the fascinating psychology and neuroscience of growth mindset and looks at the theories behind the way we learn and develop

‘I can and I will’, goes the saying. David Brent probably had it printed on a mouse mat… and a mug. Maybe even a t-shirt. Brent had many failings; mysogny, choreography - but he wasn’t a quitter. He had growth mindset. He faced whatever life threw at him with positivity, and when he got knocked down (frequently), he got back up again and kept trying.

David Brent is probably not the best person to model your managerial style on. But growth mindset -the ability to meet change and adapt – is something every successful person and organisation needs. Growth mindset cultures improve motivation and effort. They develop positive approaches to new challenges. Teams with a growth mindset are more likely to embrace challenges and be more persistent.

This keynote uncovers the secrets that lead to success and gives delegates techniques they can use in everyday life to develop and thrive. Thankfully, it won’t turn you into David Brent – but it will make you laugh, and if you practice what it teaches, it will help you to be more positive and resilient .

NEGOTIATION AND THINKING SKILLS

A keynote which investigates the importance of perception and subconscious judgments and reveals how these impact on our communication and negotiating skills

The art of negotiation is one of the most valued skills in all walks of life – just asked the people tasked with delivering Brexit. If you understand the processes that lie beneath the language and communication of negotiation, you can negotiate more effectively and fairly. Learning to be a skilled negotiator will help you make deals, solve problems, manage conflict, and preserve relationships.

The keynote is delivered with trademark Laughology fun and laughs and gives delegates strategies to negotiate effectively and ethically in the modern world.

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF HUMOUR AND LAUGHTER AS A PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT TOOL

Delivered with fun and laughs, we take delegates on a journey through some surprising science to reveal how to harness the power of laughter and humour to improve lives.

Everyone likes to laugh, and unless you are unnaturally miserable, everyone enjoys humour. But did you know laughter can help you lose weight and look younger and that humour can cure illness? And both can be used to increase health, wealth, wellbeing and success.

We are experts in the science of laughter, humour and happiness and this fascinating keynote uncovers their secrets using the latest research in neuroscience and psychology. We have used this knowledge to create systems and interventions that have been delivered successfully in organisations including blue-chip multi-nationals, government bodies, health and educational establishments.
