Event Details

Learn to understand stress and make it work in your favour by tapping into the science behind it with leading neuroscientist and clinical psychologist professor Ian Robertson.

The human brain – the most complex entity in the known universe – is a self-programming organ that can be controlled to a considerable extent. This includes changing brain chemistry at will through relatively simple methods, including breathing exercises, goal-setting, altering thinking patterns and improving physical posture.

As an eminent neuroscientist and a trained clinical psychologist, Ian Robertson has a unique ability to bridge the gap between brain science, human psychology and the personal challenges each of us faces from time to time. Through practical, interactive exercises, interspersed with brief presentations, Ian will show you how it's possible to improve mental and emotional functioning through controlling your brain’s “sweet spot”.  

He will also explain how even small amounts of power – and powerlessness – within an organisation can profoundly change people’s personalities and behaviour, and how the efficiency of teams is hugely influenced by the balance of dominance profiles in the individual personalities of the team.

Some of the subjects covered…

  • Emotional energy

  • The “sweet spot” of stress

  • Context creates the emotion

  • Your brain in competition with itself: challenge and threat mindsets

  • What doesn’t kill me, makes me stronger?
