Meet our speakers:
Matt Bannister – Confidence to Die For
Make an entrance, command respect and loyalty, put down riots! RADA have made it their business to understand how best to use eye contact to affect others on the stage. Now they are coming to Berwins Salon North to help us learn the same skills to build rapport and to increase power and engagement in our own equally taxing social and work situations. This brand new session from RADA in Business’ Matt Bannister will explain the tricks and the devices used in the actors’ studio for you to put to use in the boardroom, or attracting a waiter at Betty’s Tea Room. The choice is yours!
Maria Maclennan – Your Life in Jewels
Maria Maclennan will allow us to spy on the intricate and intimate world of Forensic Jewellery. The grim task of forensic science and the glamour of jewellery may seem worlds apart, but for this Dundee academic the pair can be a perfect match in unravelling the secrets of the dead. As the world’s first forensic jeweller, she has spent the last five years helping investigators identify victims by studying jewellery found at crime scenes and disaster sites carefully piecing together the stories of those involved by these most intimate of objects.
David Adam – Milk Your Way into Mensa
What if you have more intelligence than you realise? What if there is an actual genius inside you, just waiting to be released? And what if the route to better brain power is not hard work or thousands of hours of practice but to simply swallow a pill? Bestselling author David Adam will share with us the ground-breaking neuroscience of cognitive enhancement that is changing the way the brain and the mind works – to make it better, sharper, more focused and, yes, more intelligent. He will share his own experiments with revolutionary smart drugs and electrical brain stimulation, to delve into the sinister history of intelligence tests, meet savants and brain hackers and reveal how he boosted his own IQ to cheat his way into Mensa!
