Friederike Fabritius's 2022 talks & topics

The Neuroscience of Trust

Our brains are intrinsically wired to be social. Good relationships will make you live 8 years longer and boost your profitability. In the end, it’s all about neurochemistry. Learn about ten ways to increase your levels of the relationship hormone oxytocin to give you the best possible relationships – at work or in life.

Fun, Fear, and Focus

How can you reach peak performance? All you need is a specific cocktail of neurochemicals. Once you have the right mix, you will be multiple times more productive – and happier, too.

Master Your Emotions

How can you stay cool under pressure? Which techniques are proven to calm your mind? We will not only talk about emotional mastery, but take the first steps towards achieving it today. So the next time you find yourself in a stressful situation, you will be equipped with secret science-based weapon that will make you much more resilient.

The Neuroscience of High Performing Teams

Why do people behave the way they do? Learn about your neurochemical signature and how it influences the way you feel, the way you think, the way you act. Each participant will receive the chance to take a personality assessment that will help you to enhance both your self awareness and your ability to create a high-performing team.

Don’t change the people, change the workplace

Many companies try to increase diversity – and fail. Why? They ask women and minorities to “lean in”, while keeping the workplace the same.  Most people, don’t enjoy working 80-hour weeks, taking red-eye-flights, and sacrificing their health and the time spent with their families for the sake of their careers.

The good news is: It doesn’t have to be that way. We can work much less, while getting done just as much or more. We can be multiple times more productive if we work in line with what our brains need. A brain-friendly workplace will automatically attract more diverse talent – across the board. Don’t change the people, change the workplace!

The Neuroscience of Learning

How can you become fluent in a new language or master in a new field? Most people believe that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. But it doesn’t have to be this way. The key is to make your learning process “brain-friendly.” We will explore 10 rules for brain-friendly learning, based on the science of neuroplasticity.

The Neuroscience of Habit Change

How can you get rid of undesired behaviors and adopt new ones that suit you better? Neuroscience to the rescue! The key is to substitute old neuronal networks with new ones, and I will show you how. It’s easy once you have the right techniques.

The Neuroscience of Innovation

Do your best ideas come to you when you are taking a shower? I will show you what happens in your brain when you have an Aha Insight and how you can make it happen more often. Once you understand the underlying principles, you can set up an environment that allows your brain to be much more creative and innovative, based on neuroscience.

How to be Social in a Virtual World?

How can you build great relationships with your teams and clients when everybody is working from home? It all comes down to the neurochemical oxytocin. It’s released when you fall in love, when a baby is born, and when you build trust in a business setting.  I will show you how to set the ground rules for all those virtual meetings so that you can build trust and maximise the social element while minimising the dreaded ‘ZOOM-fatigue’.

Switch off: How smartphones shrink our brains and how to reverse it

People check their phone on average once every 12 minutes.

If we look at how our brain handles social media, we can see that we are literally addicted to our devices. This constant distraction is a big productivity killer, and it literally shrinks our brains. We can use neuroscience to overcome it. You will learn ten strategies that help to disconnect, thereby improving your productivity, well-being, and ability to innovate.

The Perfect Day

How can you schedule your day in the most effective way? It’s not about spending more hours at work, but about using your brain in the smartest and most efficient fashion. Learn about the impact of sleep, nutrition, and exercise on your brain, and transform your day and effectiveness.

How to make better decisions

We like to think that we are rational, but when we look at how our brain works, we will see that our behavior is anything but rational. How can we use that knowledge to make better decisions? Find out in this keynote.
