Dr Geoff Bird

I am a cognitive neuroscientist, both a psychologist and a neuroscientist. I am head of the Social Interaction Laboratory at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, and a Research Fellow at the University of Oxford and Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, University College London.

I am one of the world’s leading Neuroscientists – I have published over 50 peer-reviewed articles in the world’s leading scientific journals and is a frequent keynote speaker at global conferences. I am also a qualified executive coach and experienced facilitator so I understands the challenges and opportunities associated with translating academic research into effective strategies for leaders within a business context. Throughout my career I focused on how it is that the brain enables us to learn from others, feel empathy for them, and influence how they feel and think. My ability to explain such complex ides from Neuroscience in accessible formats has resulted in him appearing on a number of TV and radio shows.

On demand access

You can purchase and access a full recording of selected international employment law events. This is an option for those who cannot attend an event on a particular day or those who wish to share knowledge with colleagues. Full slides and documentation are provided and the recording is accessible in easily digestible bite-sized chunks. Get in touch to learn more.

Technology is bringing about seismic shifts in how we communicate on both a personal and business level. This is particularly evident in how learning is consumed and JSB is committed to delivering its L&D services in a way that optimises all appropriate technology.

In each case participants receive a documentation pack which includes any presentation material alongside a supporting narrative giving useful background information.

Choose the right approach for you:

Face-to-face attendance

The most valuable form of learning delivery continues to be the face-to-face classroom-based event. Engaging with expert speakers and fellow participants in relaxed two-way discussion in a distraction-free environment offers a valuable and practical learning experience.

All JSB programmes take place in top venues in central London and participants report that they greatly value the opportunities that these events provide for learning and networking.

Virtual classroom participation

We frequently welcome participants from overseas to our London events. However, we recognise that HR professionals who are responsible for managing workforces in these countries will not always be able to make the financial and time investment necessary to attend JSB events when they run in London. You will have the opportunity to submit questions to the speaker throughout the event and will get access to the slides and documentation in exactly the same way as those in the room. All you need is a standard domestic broadband connection.

On demand access

Should you find that you can’t wait until the next event on your chosen topic, you can access a full recording of a recent live event. Again, full slides and documentation will be provided. This is an option for those who cannot attend an event on a particular day. Moreover if the learning is to be of practical value it is often the case that even those who participated on the day welcome the opportunity of accessing the material in the weeks and months following the event. It’s a great way to share content with colleagues too.

What next?

Go to our booking form and when you select the event you wish to book on, simply choose the option that best suits you. If you are interested in the on demand access, please get in touch to find out more.
