With the basic idea of “emotions as valid data”, Denise Shull can entertain, educate and inspire audiences that range from senior executives to football teams to groups of quantitative traders. When she first started speaking publicly, a professor doing research in psychology called her up and said “How do you do it, how do you get audiences of mostly men to listen to the idea that emotions matter?”
Denise thinks it is easy – as people with a particular skill often do. Take a dash of cutting-edge science, cut it to fit the real world and speak like your are talking to your lifelong best friend. And her formula works. Routinely, conference and corporate listeners tell her “that was the best talk of the day“.
