Postponed: New date to be announced soon

Emotions are only recently becoming a common theme to discuss with our clients in the corporate world.

We now understand that we truly are emotional creatures, and that thoughts follow feelings, not the other way round as previous generations believed.

This neuroscience evidenced evening will look at how a better understanding the neurobiology and chemistry of our brains and minds will complement our psychological understanding.

This will bring a range of benefits to our clients and our practices as a whole.

During the session we will be looking at:

  • What is the core palate of our emotions?
  • What is the difference between emotions, feelings and moods. How do these influence the behaviours and thinking of our clients?
  • What are the triggers and emotional reaction they elicit, and are they helpful or a hinderance?
  • How important are they to our longevity, wellbeing and satisfaction with life?
  • Are neurochemicals really that important for our mental wellbeing?
  • What tools can you use with clients to help them achieve a deeper understanding and better emotional regulation?

Platform 9, 
Tower Point (next to NCP car park) 
North Road, 

Event Location: 

    Speaker - Soraya Shaw

    Soraya Shaw is the first person globally to successfully complete a new MSc in ‘Applied Neuroscience in Organisations’.

    This deep knowledge, based on the latest research, combined with 16 years’ experience in executive coaching, alongside her former career in the advertising industry, means she has a unique perspective to offer.


    Starting at 6.30pm sharp. As usual, we will make time for a short Q&A session at the end of the event, followed by an informal continuation of the debate those who want to stay on.

    This will be at the pub, The Three Jolly Butchers, opposite Platform 9, and lasts as long into the evening as people want to talk!

    This is a free event for Society members and the general public.
