Engaging, inspiring and enthusiastic, Rebecca's style meets her audiences where they are and brings them along for a fascinating journey into their own minds. Brain science for business has never been more approachable and fun! Her enthusiasm for helping others maximize their potentials is as infectious as her energy.
Using the biologically driven challenges organizations face in managing behaviors, Rebecca weaves together stories from her personal experiences, cutting edge research in neuroscience, and practical takeaways for everyday operations in work and life. The result is an unforgettable experience that will permanently shift the perceptions of participants and redirect them on a course toward happier, healthier, and more productive lives.
"Change your environment to change your mind. This is business, evolved."
As an evolutionary biologist, Rebecca brings refreshing insights from the biological perspective to help her clients make sense of the "whys?" underlying our behaviors as individuals and institutions. Key highlights of her signature workshops include:
- Reconciling stone-aged brains to operate more efficiently in a modern world
- Understanding biologically driven behaviors and helping them work for you, not against you
- Building cooperation, and stimulating creativity and innovation by understanding the underlying mechanisms that regulate these processes at a neurological level
- Optimizing the work environment to allow the greatest potential from all employees
