Each week Maria Franzoni, Speaker Bureau Director, invites one of her speakers to talk about their life, work, passions and leisure so that you can get to know the person who is the speaker behind the mic.
This week, Maria’s guest is Dr. Beau Lotto. Beau is a world-renowned neuroscientist, bestselling author, and entrepreneur. Beau is also the founder and CEO of Lab of Misfits, the world’s first neuro-design studio. His studies in human perception have taken him well beyond the scientific domain and into the fields of education, the arts, and business. He has been a two-time main stage TED speaker and spoken at the G8, Google’s ZeitgeistMinds, Wired, and made contributions to BBC’s Horizon, National Geographic Channel and PBS. Beau’s aim is to use the principles of perception to enable people to think differently about both themselves and the world around them.
Beau explains why what we see isn’t really what we see and fills us in with what the Lab of Misfits work is all about including sharing some of the experiments they’ve done with Cirque du Soleil and L’Oreal. Ever wondered what Augmented Reality is? Beau gives us an insight into some of the AR apps he is developing to enable technology to get people to re-engage with the world including the digital handshake! All this and more…
“Once you understand how perception works, you can’t but help see yourself in the world in a different way and engage in it in a different way.”
