How to BioHack your Nervous System for Top Performance: Bouncing Back from Setbacks

March 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

How to BioHack your Nervous System for Top Performance:

Bouncing Back from Setbacks

Startup life can be a wild ride with its ups and downs. Frequent failures, setbacks and unending challenges are part of the game. Success is only possible by bouncing back and use the learnings from the experience. No wonder resilience is considered as the number one indicator for success.

Unfortunately it is easier said than done. Many get burned out and experience physical&psychological problems. Depression is 2x higher among entrepreneurs compared to the general population. Ability to bounce back is crucial not only for our performance, but also our wellbeing.

In this seminar you’ll learn how to:

  • Define bouncing back from setbacks (resilience) from a psychophsiological perspective
  • Tap into psychophysiological self-regulation processes
  • Make use of tech and non-tech tools to improve our ability to bounce back
  • Respond more effectively to personal and organizational stressors


6:30-7:30pm Seminar

7:30-7:45pm Q&A

7.45-8.30pm Consolidation/Networking/Socialization

Our presenter:

Banu Hantal is a Psychologist providing neuroscience-based leadership development and performance management services. She’s a sought after executive coach among startup CEO’s and the author of the upcoming book “Brain Hygiene for Top Performers”.

“When Banu talks, I listen. I rarely enjoy accepting things at face value — I want to know why things exist as they do. Banu has spent a significant part of her life understanding why the human mind works as it does. She uses this understanding and deep passion for the “why’s” and “how’s” of our brains to dive deep and shift perspectives through teaching, not telling.

These teachings and the piercing intellect with which she delivers them continues to deeply shift the way in which I conduct myself as a CEO. I wish all students had teachers as intelligent, knowledgable, caring and passionate as Banu!”

— Aza Steel, Co-Founder and CEO, GoGuardian
