NeuroScience Top 10 Workshop

“There is a disconnect between what Science knows and what Business does.”

– Dan Pink, Author


In the 25 years since the first functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scan was invented, the field of neuroscience has experienced explosive growth.

As has our understanding of how the living brain functions, dispelling long-standing myths and beliefs about brain capability and performance. Notwithstanding, leadership and management practices based on such out-dated beliefs persist. Neuroscience offers new possibilities for leading in the 21st century, with a fresh understanding of what really drives human motivation and behaviour.
