    The brain is the most powerful computer in the world, yet it comes without an instruction manual.

    In this workshop we explore the workings of the brain and look at how basic functions such as linking and associating shape our thinking.

    We examine the impact of the senses on our thinking and discover how the process of mind mapping can harness the subconscious power we all possess.

    What does a creative person look like and are they allowed to wear a suit?

    In this unit we shatter the myth that creativity is bestowed selectively and introduce students to some tools designed to unleash the creativity inherent in them all.

    We explore the impact of perception on thinking and entice students to leap enthusiastically outside of their thinking boxes.

    If you believe you can, or if you believe you can’t, you will always be right.

    In this unit we look at what makes ordinary people achieve extraordinary things.

    We find out what makes us into the people we are and discover that we have a choice about how we react to a given situation.

    The freedom to make this choice is the key to setting goals, overcoming barriers to success and achieving our dreams.

    John has been standing at the front of the class for over 50 years. He was born with a cleft lip and dyslexia, he was also rubbish at football.

    As well as being the last one picked for playground football, he constantly lost at kiss chase and suffered ritual humiliation at the hands of his teachers.

    Each Friday at school the teacher would hand out 20 words to be learnt for a spelling test the following week.

    Each Monday she would stand the class up and get them to sit down in  reverse order  based on the scores they got
    .
    Each Monday John was the Last Boy Standing.

    In spite of this, John was a happy chap with supportive parents and a positive outlook. He went on to build several small businesses before deciding he wanted to show off a bit.

    Since then he has travelled the world sharing what he has discovered about the brain, creativity and the lottery of life with young people and their teachers.

    The Last Boy Standing is available to schools, local authorities, universities and anywhere interested in helping young people reach their full potential.

    With luck, he will remember most of the words, just don’t ask him to write on a flipchart!

    So, what’s he going to talk about then?

     
     

    Brain Power – The brain is the most powerful computer in the world, yet it comes without an instruction manual.

    John will share what he has discovered about the workings of the brain and look at how basic functions such as linking and associating shape our thinking.

    He will examine the impact of the senses on our thinking and discover how the process of mind mapping can harness the subconscious power we all possess.

    If he remembers to, he will share what he has learnt about how memory works.

     
     

    Creativity – What does a creative person look like and are they allowed to wear a suit?

    In this section John shatters the myth that creativity is bestowed selectively and shares some tools designed to unleash the creativity inherent in us all.

    He will explore the impact of perception on thinking and entice you to leap enthusiastically outside of your thinking boxes.

    He might even get you to turn a pile of junk in to an idea to make the world a better place.

     
     

    Self Awareness – If you believe you can, or if you believe you can’t, you will always be right.

    In this section John looks at what makes ordinary people achieve extraordinary things.

    He explores what makes us into the people we are and explains that we have a choice about how we react to a given situation.

    He might even tell you how the Last Boy Standing ended up in Dartmoor Prison.
