Brain Development meets practical advice

November 21st, 2017

Not many people can make a subject like neuroscience burst into life. Nathan Mikaere Wallis does this with ease whilst also giving 1000 useful ways to put this knowledge into practice in our daily lives, on 4th December he will be giving a talk in Motueka.

"Nathan has run workshops for Whenua Iti Outdoors staff in the past and we are always impressed with how we can bring the knowledge back to base and put some of it to use straight away," said WIO General Manager Mark Bruce-Miller. "We can't recommend him highly enough, as parents and staff, and we wanted to share the opportunity to hear him speak with the rest of the community."

Nathan speaks with a unique blend of humour and plain language to make this complex topic accessible to us all. During this talk, he will provide an insight in to how our day-to-day interactions play a critical role in defining later outcomes in all our lives. He helps explain the importance of the first 1000 days of child development, how to deal with your teenager, how our brains change as we age and so much more, making this talk relevant to everyone.

Motueka High School also rate the work of Nathan and recommend listening to the talk to all parents in our community. They have kindly provided the venue and with financial support from both NBS and Bowater Motor Group, all profits from this talk can be donated to the Whenua Iti Outdoors fund for scholarships for young people to attend our programmes who may not otherwise be able to do so.

So, if you are a parent, a parent to be, a grandparent or whanau member, maybe you're a teacher or early years educator - in fact if you live or work with young people, look after relatives, students or clients of any age and you are looking for practical and inspirational ways to improve your relationships and effectiveness, then this talk is for you.
