Boost your Brain Power

For over 70 years, science has told us that our brains are fixed. You are born with the brain you have, which develops rapidly until the age of seven, and then it starts a steady decline from age 30 until you die and there was nothing you could do about it. But science has now proven that to be false. Modern science has shown that our brain is plastic and that we all can improve it at any age and at any time. This presentation will show you how to boost your brain power.

Todd will not only take you behind the scenes of this extraordinary scientific journey, he will also provide you with the practical tools, strategies and techniques to improve your brain. We are all capable of more than we realise, and modern science is showing us how.

So how can we use this new understanding of brain power to rethink the way we do business?
