Can You Talk About Touch, Sound or Smell to Conference Organisers?

last modified Jul 25, 2016 01:37 PM

We are hosting a two day visit for a group of professional conference organisers from not for profit organisations such as Alzheimer’s Research.  As part of the Programme we are running a short education Programme called EventSense.  The idea is that we will look at the five senses and how our senses can be stimulated during an event to induce calm, help with well-being, memory and recall. For example, I have a visual practitioner who will talk about creating a visual record of a conference, and a chef who will talk about food for the brain.  However, I’m struggling to find speakers to talk about touch, sound and smell.

 

We want to promote the expertise that we have here in Cambridge so we really want to involve local people if at all possible and because we want to give the organisers a true Cambridge experience we would like to give a scientific overview of what is happening in our brain when our senses are stimulated.  Hopefully the organisers can then take away some tips to try at their own conferences to engage delegates by appealing to their senses.

 

The event is on 15th September at Homerton College and each presentation will be about 15 minutes.
