Boosting Brain Flexibility and Creativity with Todd Sampson
Hosted by the Property Council Australia, a recent breakfast session with Todd Sampson explored the many ways one could boost brain flexibility and creativity and Taylors attendees were keen to learn the ways.
As members of Property Council Australia, representatives were given the opportunity to learn from one of Australia’s most influential executives, Todd Sampson. Known for being the co-creator of Earth Hour, a thrill seeker, and his appearances on the Gruen Transfer, Body Hack, and Redesign my Brain, this “inspirational and honest presentation” aimed to educate the audience by providing them with “the practical tools, strategies and techniques to improve your brain”.
“Our brains are continually adapting and growing,” said Taylors attendee, Web and Graphic Designer Luke Clow. “They only stop when we stop exercising them and allow our rigidness to stop us from seeking new ideas.”
The main message of the event was that our brain’s potential is not limited by age, genetics, etc. and that instead, all our brains have the potential to be extraordinary with training exercises which we ourselves can do. “The event purpose was learning and development,” Taylors Marketing Coordinator, Nicole Pendlebury remarked. “There were a lot of interesting take-aways. Todd Sampson explained the science behind neuroplasticity and creativity, with interactive demonstrations, and then tips and activities to implement in your everyday routine for improvement.”
While not specific to the development industry, the ideas presented in the session support the ‘Taylors approach to solutions through encouraging the growth and training of our brains to approaching problems in new ways’. Attending events such as these, ensure that we further our learning to remain an industry leader in innovative delivery. “There were ideas and exercises presented to help unlock potential improvements in our mental flexibility, memory and adaptiveness.”
We are all capable of more than we realise, and modern science is showing us how.
