| Join us at the 2011 Summit from 8 to 10 November in San Francisco, USA. The theme in 2011 is 'Adaptive Organizations'. This year we will be taking a more organizational perspective, and involving more senior executives in the discussion, while we think about how to create more resilient, dynamic, adaptive organizations through understanding the brain.|
The 2010 NeuroLeadership Summit was our best yet. Our goal is to make 2011 even better, and we think we're on track to do so. Take a look at the program that is confirmed so far...
