Welcome to 'The Science of Connection: Working Well Together'

Led by: Dr Jenny Brockis

This full-day masterclass will be held on Monday 3 April 2017

In this invaluable one-day masterclass, find out how you, as a business leader, can build greater engagement, trust and performance by fostering the creation of working relationships that provide meaning and purpose. The human cost of business: absenteeism, presenteeism, high staff turnover and loss of talent are just a few of the big challenges facing business today. While awareness of the size and cost of the problem is important, what matters most is the development and implementation of effective strategies to reduce this burden and elevate performance, productivity and collaboration. This masterclass provides the essential toolkit to do so.

Dr Jenny Brockis is an expert in human behaviour and brain fitness: what it takes for individuals and organisations to stay brain healthy, eliminate poor thinking skills and boost mental performance and works with organisations internationally to help make brain fitness a key driver for business success. Her work is based on cutting-edge academic research learnings and business recommendations, and provides essential, practical and easily-implementable tools for building sustainable, healthy business cultures in a vastly-changing working landscape:
