Sunset Session: Rhythm & Connection 

Explore the power of music and its impact on the dynamics and energy levels of your meetings. The physical environment has a profound effect on people: on our thoughts, our emotions, our state of being, and ultimately on our behavior. We may not consciously hear every sound, but our brains are constantly processing them nonetheless. Learn how to intentionally design and use sound and music to draw attention, influence mood, create engagement, evoke emotion, convey a message, strengthen memory or meaning, and even train thought processes to move at different speeds.
Monday, February 08, 2016 / 17:15 - 18:15 
Joshua will also participateto to the Closing General Session
