Professor Grant Schofield talks brain hemispheres- at the Diversity breakfast

The Auckland Chamber of Commerce and EEO Trust host a monthly ‘Diversity’ breakfast event, and the content at this morning’s event, in the Sir Paul Reeves room on the AUT Wellesley Street campus, fitted the billing.

Professor Grant Schofield spoke to invited guests about human potential and plasticity of the human brain. In the modern working environment, Schofield reminded us, the neurons in our brain need adequate sleep and proper food. Professor Schofield used slides to make his point- a photo of the food that an American family eats in a week screamed ‘obesity epidemic’.

Schofield spoke with a distinct and enjoyable touch. This was a memorable breakfast and also an opportunity to network and meet new potential customers. If you are interested in further networking events please visit the Chamber website on http://www.chamber.co.nz.

Our next Diversity breakfast is on September 12th and is being held at the Northern Club. The guest speaker is Bunnings managing director Jacqui Coombes. To register for this event please email events@chamber.co.nz or call us on (09) 309 6100.
