Parents, educators, public officials, business and medical professionals, and nonprofit leaders will all benefit from a free public lecture featuring acclaimed author and speaker Dr. John Medina on Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Baylor School Alumni Chapel.
A dynamic speaker known for his ability to engage audiences while breaking down complex topics into lay terms, Dr. Medina's presentation will cover:
why multi-tasking is a myth—and what happens when you try to type an e-mail and talk on the phone at the same time
that every employee and every customers’ brain is wired differently
how exercise, sleep, and stress affect the brain
just what makes PowerPoint presentations so very boring and much more.

Praise for John Medina and Brain Rules:
“John Medina's new book, Brain Rules, dissects the workings of the brain in plain English, explaining its role in the workplace and classroom. What could be a daunting subject becomes enjoyable through a writing style that makes words leap off the page.”- USA Today
"Brain Rules is a highly readable guide to using the latest neuroscience research to improve your life and work. Medina’s prose never overwhelms the lay reader with jargon but still manages to convey the scientific underpinnings of his recommended strategies for enhancing learning, health, memory, and more. Remarkably, this molecular biologist is a gifted communicator who is able to write for both the scientist and the layperson.”- Psychiatric Times
Few people are better qualified to help managers sift through all the hype than John Medina.” Harvard Business Review
