Tone: Talk is Fast-Paced, Interactive, Enthusiastic, Information-Intensive
Opening: Warm-up includes audience participation, interactivity, show of hands, multiple choice questions, in-seat exercises
Core Content:

  • Understand the false tales, myths, and misconceptions history has propagated about how our human brains work

  • Discover ways to ‘trick’ yourself into being more motivated, productive

Wrap-up: Take home countless tips, tricks, and tools you can use to boost your brain’s functionality immediately, at work, at home, and in all you do

More info on this talk:

Everyone knows the feeling of having more items on our ‘to-do’ lists than there is time in our day, or knowing something needs to get done that you just can't find the energy to do.

Some will assure you that better ‘time management’, ‘self-management’, or ‘managing through others’ is the key to higher productivity – though latest findings from brainsciences inform why these notions are often outdated, don’t work sustainably, and can even backfire.

Higher motivation and better productivity are within reach: we must start by operating our own brains the way they were designed to be used! By dispelling the myths and banishing the misconceptions, Dr. Brynn will walk through frontier findings to help you be a better operator of your own human brain so you can be better in all you do.

Did you know that your brain is a serial, not simultaneous, processor allowing that ‘multi-tasking’ is a neural impossibility, a myth? Or that your brain operates according to a rhythm that necessitates a break every 90 minutes, at a minimum (and likely needs one closer to every 45 minutes)? Or that those breaks should be at 15 minutes in length, but no longer than 20 minutes, in order to maximize your productivity?

This keynote highlights the latest insights from brainscience about how we should organize our day, time, schedule, sleeping, and even eating in order to feel more motivated, be more productive, and ultimately perform in all we do as our peak selves – together, we ‘Boost Your Brain!’ --

Neuroselling

  • Insights are practical, useable, real, and applied
  • Understand better how the human brain really operates and makes decisions 

Wrap-Up: Get new tips and tools for brain-based selling, marketing, influence, and persuasion

More info on this talk:

Zig Ziglar said it best: "Everyone is in sales. Maybe you don't hold the title of salesperson, but if the business you are in requires you to deal with people, you, my friend, are in sales."

Being a good at sales of any kind means winning the person - their heart, mind, brain, and most importantly, their subconscious. Getting people to believe in you, buy into your ideas, or buy your products, goods, and services, means getting another's subconscious on-side.

‘Neuroselling’ investigates the ways people really process information during a conversation or sales pitch. Surprising facts? Others aren't processing you or the information you are presenting with consciousness, logic, rationality, or language: instead the brain works on subconscious, social, emotional, and image-based impulses. What do you need to know and how can you tap into this in order to be more effective at all you do, including and especially sales?

Human brains have natural ‘fault-lines’ that lead to easier persuasion, influence, and non-coercive compliance (when someone wants to do what you want them to do). In order to be better at persuading or influencing people, you just have to know where these fault-lines are.

Like a form of ‘cognitive jujitsu’, in order to be our best at selling anything (ideas, goods, services etc.), we have to know what the tricks are that the human brain plays on itself that render it more easily influenced or persuaded.

Dispelling some of the common myths and exciting audiences with new and neat brain facts, Dr. Brynn ‘unravels the brain like an onion’ to reveal her ‘6 brainscience secrets’ for increasing your influence and persuasiveness by getting to the core of the human subconscious. --

Work Wonders!
Brain-Based Do’s & Don’ts for New Work Realities +

The end of the pandemic is ushering in new possibilities, problems, and work realities - for workers and employers alike. Many employers still offer flex-schedules and work-from-home options while others attempt to mandate a return to the office, all with varying degrees of success and productivity.

Research shows workers are simultaneously ‘zoomed out’ yet hesitant to return to the office - WFH has become the new (and comfortable) norm. Mental health indicators have taken a nosedive as a result of worker social isolation, VUCA circumstances, and now the ask of further change: a return to office spaces. So ‘the great resignation’ continues.

In this talk, Dr. Brynn relays the brainscience behind why returning to offices, meeting with colleagues, and having face-to-face time again is so valuable for people, productivity, motivation, mental health, and happiness. In the brain’s reward centers, flex schedules are good while human interaction is great.

Presented in the form of ‘Do’s’ and ‘Don’ts’ from applied neuroscience, audiences learn the micro-habits, tips, tricks, tools, and techniques they need to know for how to optimize their thinking, managing, technology-usage, emotions, time, energy, brain power, balance, productivity, and motivation in new work contexts, in new work realities.

Highlights:

  • Motivational, Upbeat, Empowering, Energizing, Dynamic, Fast-Paced, Interactive, Enthusiastic, Cutting-Edge, Educational, Information-Intensive
  • Research-based, science-backed, objective, non-dogmatic
  • Presented in everyday English, entertaining, highly accessible: insights, examples, stories are designed for non-scientists to easily and quickly absorb, understand, and put learnings into practice
  • Insights are highly practical, tangible, accessible, and applied – learnings can be activated near immediately, with minimal effort, prep times, or costs
  • Participants learn what the burgeoning area of Applied Neuroscience says to do in order to productively and happily engage in new work realities
  • Great for General Assemblies - relevant to almost all work functions, job types, roles, ages, positions
  • Relevant to almost all categories, industries, sectors, companies, employer-types
  • 1-hr timeslot (optional Q & A included)
  • Perfect for kicking off a full-day/full-conference of programming – helps participants absorb subsequent sessions more effectively; feel more engaged as they do so
  • Provides workers with helpful brain-based self-help tips, tricks, and tools as they grapple with further change, return to offices, and attempt to overcome their fears or hesitations --

Neuroleadership
Brain-Based Insights for Better Leadership +

Summary:

Talk Type: 60-min Interactive, Keynote (including optional Q & A)
Tone: Talk is Interactive, Enthusiastic, Information-Intensive
Opening: Fast Brain Facts – learn neat, fun, fast facts about your amazing human brain
Core Content:

  • Dr. Brynn unravels the brain ‘like an onion’ to understand what each layer is responsible for, and what each layer is looking for from a manager or leader
  • Review the SCARE model – how you can diagnose ‘what went wrong’ in any failed conversation, management or leadership attempt
  • Understand better how to galvanize followership – the language, approach, beliefs you must employ yourself to gain higher engagement and non-coercive compliance

Wrap-Up:

  • Insights are practical, useable, real, and applied
  • Audience members walk away with tips, tricks, and tools for how to better engage their people and motivate desired actions

More on this talk:

Good leaders are skilled at attracting and energizing followership—these are skills that are latent in most of us and can certainly be taught, according to the tenants of neuroleadership.

Developing yourself as an effective leader in this vain requires a solid grasp of human psychology, emotional intelligence, as well as the neural and cognitive factors that really engage, mobilize, and energize people. As we look through the lens of neuroleadership’s SCARE model, which defines the five domains of social experience that activate strong threats and rewards in the brain, leaders can gain a better understanding of how to develop themselves and others based on these five fundamental issues of importance to the human brain. --
