Workshops and Lectures


Decision making (for individuals, or for groups)

This course will give participants knowledge and practice of using a clear and evidence-based decision making process, allowing them to overcome many of the biases and pitfalls that lead to bad decisions. Depending on requirements the course can be tailored to rapid, high-pressure decisions or careful and deliberative ones, as well as towards either individual or group decision making.


Action plans (MCII / WOOP)

Many plans we set do not get completed, this course aims to change that. The course covers breaking bad habits and forming good ones, completing aversive tasks (ones you know you should do but keep putting off), change behaviours, and changing mindset. It pulls together research from motivation, procrastination, goal achievement, and behavioural economics into a clear and actionable form.


How to start a startup

Startups are not like large companies, they need a different mindset and different behaviours. People who attend this course will have a clear idea of what is important, and thus how they should spend their time when starting one of their own. It is based upon Sam Altman’s lectures, The Startup Owner's Manual, The Lean Startup, and Zero to One.


Remembering information

Remembering facts and understanding concepts is something that people find hard, but it shouldn’t be. After this course attendees will know exactly what they need to do to remember any information. It does this through teaching how memory works - introducing spaced repetition learning, cognitive load theory, and chunking.


Prioritisation and time management (using agile/scrum)

Using ideas from agile software development and scrum attendees will be able to create a realistic and valuable time plan either for themselves or for a small group. This covers estimating the size of tasks, prioritising them and retrospectives for continual improvement.


Completing Homework and Avoiding Procrastination

School students who attend this course will be able to better appreciate why homework is important, why they often leave it to the last minute, and create achievable action plans to overcome their main causes of procrastination.
