Dr Jack Lews is a brain scientist, broadcaster and neuroscience consultant.
Each of us has the most extraordinary supercomputer known to mankind sitting inside our skulls.
It performs miraculous feats for us every day, yet most of us take it entirely for granted.
The trouble is, brains don’t come with a user guide. So the challenge of understanding them and what each of us can do to get more out of our own brain can seem daunting to many. But with the right guide, an expert who explains everything in plain English, this process can feel effortless!
Since scanning his last brain in 2009, neuroscientist Dr Jack Lewis has dedicated his entire career to helping people better understand their own brains and those they interact with every day.
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.
Steadily increasing demand from motivational speaking circuits in both Europe and the USA attest to how valuable audiences find Jack’s practical tips (Brain Optimisation Principles) on making better decisions, building resilience, boosting mood, managing stress, and enhancing all sorts of cognitive abilities.
Dr Jack has given hundreds of brain talks at conferences for companies operating across all industry sectors from global entities like Siemens, Deloitte, Warner Bros and ITV Global to local government institutions, teachers associations and the National Trust.
With the second edition of his best-selling book Sort Your Brain Out now available, Jack’s talks are constantly updated with the latest research from the worlds of neuroscience, psychology and sports science.
While Jack’s Sort Your Brain Out keynote speech focuses on helping people understand the basic ingredients our brain needs each day to thrive truly is suitable for all audiences, it can also be tailored to incorporate bespoke material such as the science of Building Resilience, Body Language or Unconscious Bias.
Dr Jack’s Neuroscience of Decision Making keynote speech inspired Deloitte to alter their pitch strategy for Tesco’s global auditing business, a multi-million-pound deal which they ultimately won. This success led Jack to be invited to talk for Deloitte across central Europe: the Czech Rep and Slovakia.
After the success of his Creative Brains keynote speech with the senior leadership team of ITV Global, Jack was invited back on seven separate occasions to share his practical tips on fostering a truly innovative environment and mindset with the entire middle-management structure of its UK business, a worldwide meeting of creative heads and another for the team at ITV Germany for their annual conference.
Jack has a first-class degree in neuroscience from the University of Nottingham and received his doctorate in neuroscience from University College London in 2005.
Dr Jack has also presented several science TV shows for channels like the BBC, ITV, Discovery, InsightTV and Sky, but his primary passion has always been getting up on stage in front of a live audience.
He’s absolutely in his element when sharing his passion for the human brain and helping everyone, from board-level execs to shop floor assistants, to get more out of their brain every day, not to mention how to keep them firing on all cylinders and in tip-top shape well into the retirement years.
