Professor Steve Peters (University of Sheffield) will outline the stress and performance management methods he has introduced to some of the world’s most successful sporting stars and will explain their basis in neuroscience research. His methods are highly transferable to all endeavours, not least to navigating the challenges of a scientific research career. They were first outlined in his bestselling book ‘The Chimp Paradox’, extended in his latest book ‘A Path Through the Jungle’, have shown impressive results in a randomised, controlled trial in NHS nurses, and are being further tested in army recruits and teachers. Many neuroscientists will find this a fascinating talk, through its insights into how our own minds work, as an outstanding example of neuroscience public engagement, and in supporting our own personal and professional development.  Registration is free here.Please see also the opportunity to register for NHS Doctors to register for a trial of these methods to lower occupational burnout in this video, with the link to sign up to the trial here.For more information on either please contact Michael Coleman at
