Cristina delivered a short session as part of a leadership development programme and as a precursor to a simulation exercise. My goal was to encourage the group to think about what we are learning from Neuroscience about how we learn, change and interact; I wanted them to be open to experimenting, trying new behaviours and making new neural connections. Cristina was excellent; she is very knowledgeable but not arrogant, clear and not patronising, engaging, responsive, authentic and caring. She left my group hungry for more. Moreover, she responded clearly to my brief and cared about making her presentation fit for my purpose, something which is not always the case with expert speakers.
