Communicating in uncertain times: practical insights from neuroscience with Hilary Scarlett

During the Covid crisis have you been having trouble sleeping at night? Are you feeling overwhelmed with your to-do list and despair at the end of the day at just how little you have achieved?

THE AUTHOR

Marc Wright, simplycommunicate founder & consultant

Marc started his career in television. He wrote and produced the drama 20 Steps to Better Business for the BBC, and his passion for the way organisations work led him to run a series of agencies including Crown and MCA which was sold to WPP in 2001. He is author of the Gower Handbook of Internal Communications and is a former President of IABC EMENA. He founded simplycommunicate in 2005.

Well according to Hilary Scarlett, it’s all because you have a brain designed for hunting and gathering on the Savannah rather than surfing Zoom calls. Your mind is designed for following animal trails, not email ones. In her webinar to the simplycommunity she showed us how to relax and communicate through uncertain times.

Hilary Scarlett designs and delivers leadership and applied neuroscience masterclasses, seminars, webinars and workshops for leaders and managers. With a post-graduate Certificate in the Psychology of Organisation Development and Change she combines her years of experience in IC with the work of neuroscientists at University College London and in the USA, bringing their work out of the lab and into the workplace in a very practical and accessible way.

In our simplycommunity webinar I and other members quizzed Hilary on how she applies neuroscience to internal communications, and these are the points that penetrated even my caveman psyche.
