Julia Reichert Lecture Topics:

  • Why negative feelings are good and normal

Things are going bad for you? Congratulations! Bad feelings have so many facets, are necessary and practical for survival. Learn all about our negative focus and how to deal with it in this keynote.

  • Speaking Power Fun: How we use Neuro Rhetoric to become successful speakers.

How do I get my audience to put down their smartphones and give me their attention for 15 minutes? How do I create a speech that will be remembered 10 years from now? How do I turn stage fright into anticipation?

In this lecture you will learn to combine the methods of centuries-old rhetoric with the latest findings from today’s science. This includes consciously using the language of your body and your voice to create a presentation that will inspire your audience with your topic. In addition to what you say, it is HOW you say something that is most important. Ultimately, the gut feeling of your customers, colleagues or audience decides whether you are worth their undivided attention. Speaking of attention, our brains run on autopilot most of the day. So who actually decides when to turn off autopilot and turn on conscious attention? Learn to understand your counterpart and present to people with anticipation instead of stage fright in the future. Once internalized, you and your audience will benefit from your (neuro-)rhetorical skills for a lifetime.

  • What the smartphone does to our brains

We live in a state of permanent distraction. Permanent sound reinforcement and constant checking of our messages cause us to unlearn calm, contemplative behavior. This is dangerous because we need rest to learn. When our brain receives new information, it is stored in short-term memory for a short time. Only after a period of rest the information makes its way from the short-term memory into the long-term memory. If we interrupt this path with distraction and stress, it is more difficult for us to retain the memory. In the end, our impatient thirst for knowledge makes us even less intelligent.
