50 Shades of Grey Matter at Fragomen
Lead Happiness consultant Dave Keeling always gets a bit nervous when asked to venture into the financial heart of London (he failed maths 3 times).
But this time it was different as he was asked to do a pre-dinner session entitled Fifty Shades of Grey Matter for 100 guests of Fragomen, an international Immigration Law firm.
The session was developed to challenge the myths surrounding the male and female brain. It raises awareness of the differences, and most importantly the similarities, between genders. The truth is far more fascinating than the incorrect messages the media like to serve up.
The more we understand our neurological make-up and how our unconscious bias can sometimes limit our ability to recognise opportunity, the better choices we can make. When we learn to understand and celebrate differences whilst collaborating and enhancing similarities, we can begin to create a more diverse and inclusive working environment.
The event was chock-full of fun, facts and interaction with delegates leaving feeling informed, empowered and entertained.
