On August 28, Prof. Dr. Steven Poelmans treated us to a memorable speech on Mens Sana in Corpore Sano 4.0. His inagural lecture wasn’t just a story about a neuroscience-based approach to high performance. It was a true wake-up call that made us all realize that the human species stands at the dawn of its rebirth. It was a story about fear, about new leadership paradigm, about the next scientific and societal revolution driven by a capital named ‘data’, and above all, it was a story about brain power.
"The human species stands at the dawn of its rebirth. The question is: will it be a reset or will it be a renaissaince?"
