Workshop

Utilising the Neuroscience of Threat and Reward to Make a Change in Your Life

How to hold someone's attention through neuroscience

Andrew Mowat
Principal Partner @ MetaLearn Education

Underneath the complexity of our social emotions and thoughts lie some simple brain 'rules of engagement'. These brain events are largely below our consciousness, yet have a big impact on our social and business success.

Three simple brain-based models will explain our deep sensitivity to social threat and reward. These will help you decode and navigate the tricky world of engaging others and holding their attention. Practical takeaways will round off the strong value to participants.

Key takeaways

1. Understand the key 'brain rules'  that determine engagement and successful social interactions.

2. Learn some simple brain-based strategies that help manage difficult circumstances and conversations.

3. Discover your most valuable brain-based resource, one that often determines social success or failure.

Andrew is passionate about helping people be better at stuff, especially social engagement and conversation. He uses evidence-based science to explain the weird world of being human.

Our social world can be like being dropped into a unfamiliar city with no map - most of us have no real idea of what leads to conversation/social success, or not.

Andrew loves to find practical and engaging ways to help others learn and develop - his work is about making a real difference to the existence of others.
