WIO presents… An Evening with Nathan Mikaere Wallis

by Nettie Stow



Not many people can make a subject like neuroscience burst into life. Nathan Mikaere Wallis does this with ease whilst also giving a 1000 useful ways to put this knowledge into practice in our daily lives. We have engaged Nathan to deliver staff training at the WIO base and we rate him so highly we wanted to share his words of wisdom and action with the wider community!

Motueka High School have kindly provided their school hall as a venue which makes the talk accessible to everyone, so now is the time to clear a space in your diary on December 4th from 6.30-8.30pm.

During this talk, Nathan will provide an insight in to how our day-to-day interactions play a critical role in defining later outcomes in all our lives. He will move from our first days to adolescence and then onto the autumnal years of our lives making this talk relevant to everyone. Reflecting on the latest neuroscience discoveries, Nathan focuses on how we as individuals and a society as a whole can use this knowledge to create better outcomes for our children and for our future. You will leave feeling inspired and armed with tips and knowledge to give you confidence dealing with toddlers, teenagers and more.

Parents, parents to be, whanau, carers, grandparents, educators, youth workers – everyone can benefit from this talk by Nathan Mikaere Wallis.

All profits from this event will support scholarship places at WIO to enable students to attend our programmes who may not otherwise be able to do so. We are very grateful that Bowater Toyota and Nelson Building Society have supported this talk to help us keep the cost down and direct profits back into the community.
