The neuroscientist committed to improving learning, productivity and wellbeing


School Workshops & Presentations

There is so much information about the best way to teach students and what best-practice looks like. Much of what is espoused is fashionable rather than scientifically proven. It is easy to become confused by conflicting ideas and in-vogue methodologies that come and go.

Dr Mark Williams brings a no-nonsense and pragmatic approach to helping schools to understand what works and why. Mark’s popular Presentations, Workshops and Consultancy Services will equip your staff with the skills, tools and ongoing support they need to succeed.

Praise

Dr Williams gave a highly engaging session on the Neuroscience of Learning. It challenged conventional thinking and had educators reflecting upon their existing practices.

David
Head of Science (Middle School) Haileybury

I cannot thank you enough; the podcasts and web chats really helped my confidence in class, and the connection with the students is great. I’m working with a school refuser who is also Autistic; she is asking to come to school, it’s wonderful!

Bonnie

Thank you so much for an amazing presentation!

Kathryn
NSW Department of Education

I’ve been to numerous (F2F) talks by Professor Mark Williams and seen him (first hand) work his magic with students across NSW. He has a scientifically informed approach to Learning and Teaching that many in the sector either don’t know and/or don’t realise the gravity of what they have a hunch on.

Prashan

Your session … was fabulous! Thank you so much.

Vivienne

I was not able to attend your talk, but have watched it recently. It was really excellent, yet terrifying.

The response from staff has been extremely positive and is already leading to further discussion. Thanks so much. We would love to work with you again.

A belated but very sincere thank you for your work with us last Monday. The teachers expressed an overwhelmingly positive response to your presentation. We built upon your ideas throughout the day in our Faculties and House pastoral teams.

Thanks again for your presentation, your sessions were well received and appreciated. The information you shared has motivated our school leaders to re-think how students are engaging with technology.

Take a journey of discovery into human behaviour – how humans can change and develop to improve performance.

Conference Speaking
