Dr Jack Lewis has a First Class degree in Neuroscience from Nottingham University and earned his PhD from University of London using fMRI brain scanning to investigate multisensory perception – specifically investigating where in the human brain what we see is integrated with what we hear.
His most recent research in multisensory neurobiology was conducted at the Max Planck Institute in Germany and was published in the Journal of Neuroscience in September 2010.
Dr. Jack has been involved in several television projects over the last 3 years including The Tech Show on Discovery Science – a 26 part series showcasing the latest developments in science, technology and engineering. Sky One‘s primetime series “Body Language Secrets“ and a 20-part social psychology series for BBC2 called “The People Watchers”, where he performed a wide variety of social psychology experiments on unsuspecting members of the public.
Jack also provides neuroscience consultancy services to TV, PR, Marketing, Planning and Advertising firms, including helping to design the games for Five’s “Britain’s Best Brain”, and developing a science-based 3D feature film for Blink Films.
In 2014, Jack collaborated with the best selling business author and Motivational Speaker Adrian Webster to write ‘Sort Your Brain Out – Boost Your Performance, Manage Stress and Achieve More’. The book includes brain-powered self-help advice to help improve your mood, help you deal with stress, keep your memory sharp and generally work smarter in your everyday life.
Jack Lewis has also designed a Brain Gym in Central London, where he tested the brain power of the public, offering advice on how to improve memory and decision making strategies. The Brain Gym is a fun, informative and interactive way of getting a workforce to get to grips with how their brains work to encourage people to take an active interest in improving mental function. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. What’s more – it is a case of use it or lost it!!
As a speaker, Dr. Jack Lewis covers a variety of ways in which a person can optimise the functionality of their brain using memory tricks, techniques for boosting creativity, minimising and harnessing stress.
He also outlines a brain-focused explanation of why practice makes perfect to motivate the audience to put in 30mins per day into simple activities that improve a variety of mental faculties.
Jack’s talks are usually topped-and-tailed with generic top tips for optimising brain function, but the central segment can be tailored to client’s exact needs.
A popular theme, particularly when speaking to sales forces, is an explanation of how the human brain makes decisions so that employees can better understand how to be more influential (and avoid hitting panic buttons) in their dealings with clients.
Speaking topics include:
- Techniques to optimise brain function
- Using knowledge of how brains make decisions to get the competitive edge
- Other topics tailored to client needs based on latest neuroscience findings
