Meet Aaron Barth Ph.D. from Dialectic

A captivating speaker can take your event from average to extraordinary. But finding the right one isn’t always easy. The best introduce real-world, useful lessons in a format that invites attendees to contend with new ideas in real time. Attendees leave feeling energized, with a new skill or perspective they can apply right away.

Enter Aaron Barth Ph.D, the Founder of Dialectic.

Aaron designs a unique experience for every event, carefully tailoring his session to your theme and your audience. How? His science-driven approach focuses on activating the audience’s critical thinking skills. He encourages audience members to practice applying these skills to a topic through carefully constructed, thought-provoking activities.

At your conference, Aaron can help business leaders and managers use science to improve their organizations, including topics such as employee learning, organizational change, and customer engagement. Aaron will draw from his experience to connect authentically with audiences from the full spectrum of sectors and industries using language and scenarios that genuinely resonate. By distilling the inherent complexity of these topics down to a few core concepts, Aaron will help participants ground the ideas in their own lived experience. In a sense, this means that every person will leave with a preview of how they can apply Aaron’s lessons to the work they do every day.

A scientifically-backed experience that changes the way you think.
