At the Podium

Bronson brings his research to life with wit, first-hand experience, and a journalistic appetite for the truth. Delving into NurtureShock, he covers a variety of parenting techniques, topics and addresses all stages of childhood, from toddlers to teens. His insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend children’s (and adults’) lives will change how audiences think about the kids in their life, and rethink how we all became who we are today.

Bronson also reveals the ways in which individuals are challenging and changing the corporate, cultural, and economic landscape and finding their fulfilling niche within it. His uncanny ability to capture the motivations, desires, and personalities define their unique places in every aspect of modern culture. His presentations are like the life stories he chronicles: sometimes fun, sometimes moving, and always important and meaningful.

The audience was so glad to have access to Po, who was extremely charming, funny, knowledgeable, and kind.
