Hey there!

We are pumping with hormones and neurotransmitters at the thought of our first Think Club of the year: The Science of Leadership.

A little too science geek for you? Nah, you know we love this stuff and we will have you loving it too!

To succeed as a leader in a rapidly changing world, it helps to understand the physiological evolution of some key chemicals coursing though your amazing brain. You know the ones, that obsessive drive you feel to smash your goals, or the overwhelming impulse you have to check the number of “likes” and let’s not forget that kick-arse feeling of invincibility that you’d just love to flick on like a switch.

At this Think Club, we will share some secrets so you can train your brain for peak performance, at the exact moment you need it! Through understanding the neurochemicals of managing pressure, making progress and that magnificent mammalian feeling of establishing connections.

Are you curious to get your science on? Great, grab your tickets to come join us and we will see you on the 2nd!
