Office for the Public-Sector Conference – The Neuroscience of Leadership

Great variety in presenters, really enjoyed each of the sections especially Kristen Hansen's perspective of the Neuroscience and how it can be applied to performance management
City of Charles Sturt

Kristen’s presentation was engaging, entertaining and highly educational. Our membership community of established business leaders had only exceptional feedback and would love to hear from Kristen again in the future.

I worked with Kristen recently and she presented an intricate and thought-provoking session on “Neuroscience of Talent Management and Leadership” at the 3rd Annual Global HR Excellence Conference 2014, Singapore. The session was very well received and it gave the audience an in-depth understanding on how to manage talent and capabilities from a HR perspective. Kudos to the excellent sharing and I do hope to work with you in the near future!
Marcus Evans Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Kristen Hansen presented on the Neuroscience of Leadership to over 150 of our people leaders. Kristen’s presentation was engaging, informative and practical. Kristen was incredibly entertaining and full of energy. She was able to make complex theory simple and easy to understand whilst also applying it practically for our leaders to take back and use with their teams. The feedback from our people leaders has been exceptional with many stating that they have been able to apply much of what Kristen presented.
Westpac Group

Kristen Hansen presented at our Specialty Fashion Group Annual Leadership Conference to 85 leaders. The topic was The Neuroscience of Leadership (NeuroLeadership TREAD) and it was informative, entertaining and rich with practical strategies to lift engagement, improve decision making and stress regulation as well as develop and coach others. Kristen’s style was engaging, humorous and influential and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. We really benefited from understanding more about how the brain works and how we can be better leaders as a result. What impressed us was that she was able to relate to many different levels of management in the room all at the one time keeping pace with the fast thinkers and bringing those along who needed more assistance. During all of this she never lost the audience’s attention. Such was her impact, people are still referring to the material presented and using it in the daily work life (and personal lives)
Specialty Fashion Group, CEO

Kristen Hansen; dynamic, engaging and relevant. In presenting her neuroleadership session to the State Trustees managers, Kristen unlocked a response from the whole group that I’ve not been seen before. Every person took away strategies to help them be better leaders and they are still talking about the session months later.
Strategy, Innovation & Transformation

Many thanks for the great presentation last week at Clifton’s – thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to hearing you speak again in the future!

Thank you for your presentation at our Executive / Manager Workshop, it was excellent! As you are aware, I believe that this field offers the prospect of substantial improvement in organisational (and personal) performance. Your presentation conveyed this potential in a very effective and informative way. As the workshop continued the following day, the concepts you outlined where repeatedly raised and discussed by a range of Managers. One of the key outcomes of our workshop is to consider ways in which we can utilise this field in our organisation.
