Our brain is so sensitive to mood, timing, location and environment that these things have a serious impact on how well we take in and remember information. As a science reporter for The New York Times for the past 10 years, Benedict Carey writes regularly about neuroscience, psychiatry, neurology and everyday psychology. He also wrote the book How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens. Now he comes to the Oshman Family JCC to talk more about the topic of learning. Find out whether repetition is necessary, why sleeping and daydreaming can be important to the learning process, and get tips for the best techniques to remembering more effectively. Learn More

Mr Mackey gave an interesting talk. He seems like a nice man......and it makes me want to patronize WholeFoods more often ! So refreshing to hear someone speak well of business and business people. After years of Hollywood bashing business in many movies and Liberals saying how 'bad' business people are....it is a pleasure to hear someone speak the truth. Business is good for people and good for America.
People who speak badly of business should try and start a business of their own.....then they would realize how hard it is to be successful.
The event was a great success....and it was nice to see how many people lined up talk to him after the show.

John Mackey was fabulous, however I think the moderator did a poor job. Mr. Mackey was direct and candid - offering a glimpse into how he thinks, business in general and how others can "join in" the movement to Conscious Capitalism.
