In a deeply divided world, what can leaders do to unite and heal? Our brains are hardwired to have the Us-vs-Them division. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives without understanding this intrinsic tendency are often counterproductive. This highly insightful keynote empowers your audience with knowledge and hope.

Watch Jeff Berger explain his experience attending Dr. Terry Wu's presentation using the science of the brain to explain how we react to others.

Terry Wu, Ph.D. ~ Neuroscientist & Speaker

2+ million people have learned the Neuroscience of Human Decisions from Dr. Terry Wu. Dr. Wu received his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Vanderbilt University. He has a 35-year career in Neuroscience. In his studies of applying Neuroscience to strengthen leadership, Dr. Wu found that leadership development focuses primarily on teaching leaders how to lead, but not Why People Follow. He also found that leadership development relies on rare anecdotes and personal stories instead of science. These two weaknesses exacerbated the widespread leadership failures brought about by the pandemic. Dr. Wu’s research into the Neuroscience of Leadership has uncovered many unique and valuable insights that empower leaders to make their leadership more predictable and successful.

Dr. Wu has spoken at 200+ conferences and corporate events. He turns complex scientific studies into interesting, easy-to-understand stories that his audiences can relate to. He makes Neuroscience practical and actionable. 2+ million people around the world truly appreciate his highly engaging storytelling speaking style.

"He made sense of everything... There was just something oddly comforting in having an explanation as to why we are the way we are and how we can go about changing that."

– Jeff Berger
