Since the success of Dr Jack’s inaugural live speaking events in late 2010 and early 2011, he is now represented by Britain’s largest speaker bureau. The Gordon Poole Agency has been running for almost half a century and they represent most of the biggest names on the live speaking circuit. From celebrity after dinner speakers to business and motivational speakers, they provide corporate clients with a wide variety of options to choose from.
Uniquely, Dr Jack’s live talks centre around revealing the mysteries of the most complex organ in the known universe – your brain. By casting light on the hidden mechanisms by which we perceive the world, communicate, think and decide, human behaviour is thrown into sharp relief. Understanding how the brain generates behaviour is extremely valuble to anyone trying to make a success of themselves in the business world. Understanding what makes others tick, how they make decisions and give away clues to what they are really thinking through subconsciously-orchestrated, subtle body language, really gives those privvy to this valuable knowledge the competitive edge.
As businesses struggle to remain successful in an increasingly competitive and difficult marketplace, they have an unfortunate tendency to squeeze more and more out of their existing workforce. The increased pressure and working hours elevate stress levels to a point where they can be debilitating to a person’s health and their productivity. Dr Jack’s Brain Coach Live talks provide the audience with a complete toolbox of brain tips and tricks that enable them to get the most out of their brains each and every day. This includes practical advice regarding how you can ensure your brain receives all the nourishment, rest and exercise it requires to operate at full potential throughout the day. Strategies to improve memory, alleviate stress, enhance communication skills and boost creative thinking are suggested and consolidated with an explanation of why these techniques enable our brains to work better. This helps employees rise to the challenge of the business world’s ever-moving goalposts, every single day.

In January of this year I gave a 1hr motivational talk at a conference in Tenerife, highlighting some pearls of neuroscience wisdom that everyone can exploit to optimise their brain performance every day:
It was a fantastic experience. I enjoyed doing the talk enormously and the feedback I got from the organisers, my co-speakers and members of the audience was overwhelmingly good.
My remit for this particular talk was to get a sales force “Ready To Win” i.e. to be more influential when dealing with customers and make more sales. So I outlined some of the latest brain scanning experiments that provide clues about how the human brain actually makes decisions.
I then explained to the audience, comprising 400 sales representatives for a leading European pharmaceutical company, the implications of this work in terms of how they could maximise their impact on their customers’ decision making processes. I can tailor this central 20mins of the performance to any specific need, topping & tailing it with my Top Ten Tips for Brain Optimisation.
The concept I conveyed in the main body of this particular talk was: the better you understand how your customers’ brains work, the better you can ensure that you make the best possible impression. I also explain why we humans are so loss averse and describe how to avoid accidentally setting off alarm bells in the customers’ mind, which can so often dash all hopes of sealing a deal.
I owe a great debt of gratitude to Adrian Webster (author of Polar Bear Pirates) and Martin Coburn. These two fantastic individuals were kind enough to share with me their extensive experience on the live speaking circuit. Out of the goodness of their hearts they provided me with guidance and advice that made my performance more interactive, better structured and ultimately a great success.
I now have a great live motivational talk that can be rolled out at any live event you might happen to be planning. In addition to material suitable for corporate audiences, I have also given motivational talks at several educational institutions (secondary school and university level) to help students learn more, faster and boost exam performance. I am also keen to engage older people having previously also given a talk at a charity for the elderly where the key message was that you can teach an old dog new tricks and that the effort that goes into learning new skills helps to keep dementia at bay.
