Seminars

Working smarter and better includes clarity, focus and collaboration. Indeed, being valued, supported, trusted and connected is critical to our wellbeing and therefore to our performance. And yes, you can have both at work, not just one or the other!

With this in mind, I offer events on the benefits of “a caring culture” combining leadership fundamentals with neuroscience and emotional intelligence science-based facts to help create and sustain in a practical manner positive behavioural and mindset change in the workplace.

Words for a better world

Using the transformative power of neuroscience and emotional intelligence, I explain “why we behave the way we do” and “how to build solid foundations” for performance and engagement, sharing many practical tips. The content focuses on what your business needs to unlock employees’ potential: be it culture, leadership, management, teamwork, wellbeing, cultural diversity …

I create thought-provoking talks and engaging workshops for your team or department. To make your learning stickier and further embed change, I offer follow-up collective or individual coaching sessions as part of a tailor-made program or a flexible drop-in clinic. All activities can be face to face or virtual.

“Sophie presented “It is good to talk” on World Mental Health Day at Metaswitch Networks. It was an engaging talk and our employees walked away with several useful tips on how to address mental health issues in the workplace. Sophie is professional and approachable and I would highly recommend her” – Metaswitch Network

The 20mn coaching session was useful as it enabled me to check the progress I had taken to see if I was heading in the right direction. A worthwhile exercise following on from the seminar.” – Foreign And Commonwealth Office

“Sophie’s professional insights on navigating the cross-cultural aspects working in MNCs are valuable. During her interactive seminar, participants obtained useful tools to realise their own work styles, and how to work more effectively. Understanding the cultural nuances and being emotionally intelligent is key as it affects the way we communicate with each other at work. Lots of positive feedback” Shell

“I had the opportunity to attend 3 workshops led by Sophie. She provided pre-course materials and interactive activities. Her work on neuroscience and emotional intelligence was integral to each session. I appreciated the academic references Sophie provided and suggestions of further reading, and I particularly enjoyed the interactive elements and chances for group discussion. Thank you, Sophie.” The Foreign & Commonwealth Office
