NEW DATE: How to Trigger Talent in Your Organisation

Event Date
Mon, 02 October , 2017
Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai,


To be able to trigger the talent in your organisation, you must first understand what motivates talent. HR professionals, and even those who lead teams,  need to rethink their approach to understand:

  • * the real drivers of talent;
  • * what makes talented professionals leave;
  • * how to challenge your talented professionals so they want to stay.

At the event Prof. Dr. Justin Kennedy will be offering pre-launch copies of his new book: Brain Triggers.


Prof. Dr. Kennedy is a globally recognized TEDx presenter, Thought Leader & Executive Coach in Organizational Neuroscience and Talent Development and developer of the N3 Coaching Model. He is also a Business School Professor in Coaching with Monarch University, Switzerland and a member of the Neuroscience Research Group management committee at the University of Pretoria, South Africa.

His corporate career was interrupted by a motorbike accident which left him in a coma. His head was swollen larger than a watermelon and his body was left paralyzed. After several brain surgeries and a lengthy recovery process he learned what was needed to reboot his brain to walk and talk again. With strict discipline and endless will power he presented a PhD thesis based on his research in neuroscience in Switzerland several years later.

Since then, Prof. Dr. Kennedy has published numerous corporate studies which demonstrate how to apply neuroscience in coaching. His work is based on brain data to ensure medically measurable results. Most recently, he presented the results of a brain study to Harvard Medical School, showing that talent development is a very costly business and high potentials often get sick or leave their organisations.
