Recognizing Mental Diversity – The Pathway To Deeper Connections


Please join UBS and the FWA for a Lunch & Learn session on the connection between neuroscience and more effective communications. As we understand more about how we think, we can begin to address and define our own communication preferences and how that resonates with others who think differently from us. Effective communications is vitally important and the key to success at every level of our lives and careers.


In this session, you will gain an understanding of:

  • A science-based model for understanding how our brains are different
  • How different languages of the brain drive (or undermine) successful communications
  • Communicating the right information, not necessarily more information
  • Unique techniques to communicate for creative results

Great communicators are born, not made according to a recent article in Forbes Magazine. It may seem difficult to become an excellent communicator, but with practice, we can all become more effective!

The FWA, in conjunction with UBS’s All Bar None network, is pleased to provide this networking and learning opportunity to encourage professional and personal development.

This will be an engaging event packed with tips on more effective communications. Be sure to reserve your seat soon!
