Learn about the Modern Brain Science of Communication - April 21

Take part in a lunch and learn at noon on April 21 in Calgary (Andrew Davidson Building, Florence Room, 122 6 Ave S.E.) to understand why emotions are stronger than logic and why you remember certain thingsbut forget others.

Advancements in modern cognitive neuroscience have enabled us to have a better look at how the human brain works.  That's having a profound impact on how we, as communications and P2 professionals can approach strategic communication through science.  Now we can develop strategies based on scientific understanding - not just best practices.  Neuroscience research focuses on the brain and its impact on our behaviour, how we think, make decisions and relate to other people.  It's one of the most exciting medical science developments for communicators to help businessesm, organizations, health care practitioners, legal and safety professionals to make decisions that relate to people and are sustainable.
