Event description

Description

Nathan Wallis is a father of three & foster parent with a professional background in child counselling, teaching and social service management. Until recently he lectured in Human Development at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand and was also a board member and senior trainer with the national body responsible for the dissemination of neuroscientific research to professionals.

Nathan is a regular on Radio and Television shows in New Zealand, sharing his expertise on child development. In 2010 he founded a private training consultancy, X Factor Education Limited, with the goal of facilitating easy to understand professional development training reflecting the latest neuroscience discoveries and their practical implications for everyday practice. Since then he has been in hot demand, delivering well over 200 presentations per year in New Zealand Australia and internationally.

He has developed a reputation as a lively and engaging speaker who uses humour and plain language to make this complex topic come to life.

Nathan’s presentations explore how the brain works and how neuroscience can better inform our day to day interactions with children and young people. Information about the human brain (and how it grows to reach full potential) has exploded into our awareness over the past twenty years.

Nathan presents the practical implications of this research with a focus on how to use this knowledge to create better outcomes.

Testamonials

"This training has to be one of the best I have attended. Nathan's energy, enthusiasm and knowledge is wonderful to experience. I feel excited to go back to my workplace with so much knowledge that really could make a difference." Resource Teacher for Learning and Behaviour

“I could spend days listening to Nathan Wallis speak. He makes this material so easy to understand and brings the information so effortlessly into a real world context. While it is heavily influenced by science, Nathan makes it seem so conversational and simple to understand. Loved his humour as well.” Parent

Amazing Presentation with very practical inspiring content. I particularly liked the ‘real life’ examples which brought the content into everyday context. Nathan has a great sense of humour and presentation style. I cannot wait to spread the word and include what I have learnt into my daily practice with children, families and centre.
