Keynote Speech Title:

"Empowering Educators with Neuro-Communication Skills"



Principles of neuroscience have been applied to several areas in the business world like marketing, selling, negotiation, presentation skills and leadership. These principles can also be used in human relations and education. There need to be more neuroscientific research conducted in the field of education, studying educators’ and learners’ responses to stimuli they are exposed to in educational settings and in daily life communications.

In the light of researches, it is possible to say that the stimuli we are exposed to and what we do and say affect the way we think and new neural pathways are established through behaviors and language. In other words, we become what we continuously do or say and what we are exposed to in the course of our life time.

In this presentation, I will be sharing how to be more aware of the power of neuro-communications skills we use in our educational and daily life communications as educators, parents, friends and colleagues in creating more positive climates which are conducive to learning, creativity, productivity and a more fulfilling life and communication we wish to have.
