Join us in Chicago and learn to get the most from your professional practice and personal performance with an immersive learning experience led by groundbreaking innovators. Bring a guest to enjoy the city while you attend the conference and have your guest join us on a private yacht cruise for a food and wine experience you won't forget.
That's what makes Neuroscience: A Sensory Experience a truly unique educational event. Pioneering researchers, innovative life coaches, leading performance experts and even a level II wine sommelier will share invaluable insights and open your eyes to new perspectives.
On a private yacht, dive into new ways to think about how we interact with food. In a working music studio, explore the ways we process music and why it's good for the brain. Find the balance you need to be your best at home and at work with the help of a life coach. And experts on human performance will help you maximize your effectiveness.
Cost for attendees is $800 for the entire program, and includes the cost of meals and dinner on the Chicago Elite private yacht on Thursday, July 18. Attendees are encouraged to bring a guest to the Thursday dinner event for an additional $150.
