Speakers Bureau

Our scientists have devoted their professional lives to exploring the mind, brain, and behavior. Now, they’d like to take what they’ve learned and share it with others through presentations to businesses, organizations, and the academic community. Their subject expertise is diverse: topics range from intelligence and creativity to decision-making and leadership. A complete list of topics is listed below. As part of our scientists’ continuing dedication to their respective fields, they have agreed to donate their time and speaker’s honorarium to FABBS to help further advance the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior.

If you are interested in having one of our scientists speak at your event, please contact the FABBS Executive Director.
