NeuroScience is Cool and Tradition is Interesting.

Neither One Should Be Holding You Back.

We are all challenged to change - to become more competitive - to accelerate the pace. We want to rise to that challenge, to be a productive part of the change we know is inevitable, but there’s something - some indefinable something - that keeps getting in the way.

Dennis Brouwer can help you breakthrough what’s been referred to as the “immunity to change”. It’s an automatic fear of change that leads us to “double-down” on the status quo and delay dramatic change until it’s too late.

Our resistance to change is baked into the very structure of our brains by the experiences of thousands of generations of risk-averse ancestors. It’s reinforced by entrenched habits of thought, which play out as unconscious bias. Its exacerbated by relentless demands on our time and attention, especially through the smartphone, the unaccountable tyrant that increasingly rules our lives and emotions.

Dennis Brouwer tackles these challenges with a unique set of insights - a blend of gripping stories, cutting-edge research and clear, actionable takeaways. You’ll share his experiences as an award-winning tactician in naval aviation, as the successful leader of a difficult turnaround of a global IT services company, and as coach and confidante for leaders in companies, non-profits and associations.
