Dr Aric Sigman’s recent talk at the Houses of Parliament on the effects of television, caused widespread public debate. His academic background coupled with his extensive broadcasting, journalistic and travel experience give him an unusual ability to translate complex scientific research into easy-to-digest information which the rest of us can use. Always fascinating, he is a lively, entertaining and sometimes provocative speaker, encouraging interaction and heated debate - a combination he has used to good effect when presenting TV and radio programmes.
He is also a popular media interviewee, frequently asked to talk about scientific, psychological and social issues on programmes as diverse as Newsnight, BBC1 News, The Today Programme and Richard & Judy.
In his motivational presentations, Aric specialises in explaining how delegates can use the latest scientific research to raise performance, productivity and moral. He also covers subjects such as surviving information overload, transferring skills, preventing depression, avoiding screen addiction, weight management for managers, political correctness in the organisation, preventing job burnout, how to talk to the media, turning parenting skills to management skills, parenting issues for professionals and Meet the British: an introduction for foreign employees.
He is a frequent traveler to remote parts of the world including North Korea, Bhutan, Mali, Tonga, Myanmar, far Eastern Siberai, Laos, Iran, Vietnam, Bolivia, Burkina Faso. He often uses his observations of these far-flung communities to great effect when turning the spotlight our own business and social cultures.
