This months topic:

Train to the Brain by Jeremy Teitelbaum

Over the last 25 years we have learned more about how the human brain works than in the previous two centuries. Brain science has shown us the brain is a complex and highly advanced organ. The findings have confirmed some of what we suspected but have also illuminated how much more there is to know about workplace learning and talent development.

In this informative talk Prof. Teitelbaum shares important lessons about what we have been doing wrong, what we have been doing right, and what we need to do better to improve the learning of workers. 


  • Brains are not created equal. Why training needs to adapt to learners (not the other way around).
  • Brain science needs to better guide our training programs (not outdated and incorrect theory).
  • Technology can solve many of our problems (but not the way we are using it today).
