How come everyone seems to be busier than ever before? Why is it so hard for some people to collaborate with each other? And why are so many people opposed to changes?

Thinking of the challenges we’re facing at work lately, it almost seems as if we are fundamentally unsuited for the world we have created for ourselves. And that’s not entirely untrue, because while we are surprisingly similar to our ancient ancestors both physically and mentally, our reality doesn’t resemble theirs even remotely. 

Fortunately, thousands of scientists are unravelling the biological bases of human behaviour little by little. Their surprising discoveries hold many clues for dealing with our professional challenges in a positive way.

We dove into the fascinating world of behavioural biology, cognitive and social neurosciences and you wouldn’t believe the mind-blowing things we ran into.

In this entertaining keynote, we share some of our most surprising discoveries with funny anecdotes and all too recognisable professional situations.,
