Christopher Samsa

Chris is a Positive Psychologist and Senior Consultant with the NeuroLeadership Group. 

Chris works with organisations in the area of behavioural change, combining a positive approach with the latest findings from neuroscience, to help improve the quality of thinking and to achieve sustainable results in record time. He believes neuroscience academics are just that – too academic, Chris believes that he can help anyone understand the working of the brain. He wants to make neuroscience accessible to all!

Direct influence, facts and fun are Chris’s way of doing things, he says that he dislikes “yogurt knitters” and ‘the slightly wishy washy Guardian reader type’ who can often be found in his field.

Chris helps people to flourish, allowing them to refocus and see their lives through a different lens. He wants people to see what is going well and what they can change for a more positive and happy life.

Drawing on his experience of working internationally for over ten years, Chris is now a visiting lecturer on the Masters in Applied Positive Psychology at UEL and a guest lecturer at UCL and Goldsmiths. He is also a guest lecturer in NeuroLeadership at Witten Herdecke University in Germany and has trained over 1000 individuals in coaching skills both on public programmes and in the workplace using the Results Coaching Systems methodology.

An experienced keynote speaker and conference host, Chris is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF) and he has served on the board of Directors of the UK ICF. His style is energetic, inspirational and interactive with a particular ability to take complex ideas and research and make them accessible and engaging to all audiences.

Chris has worked at CEO and senior management level for blue chip organisations both in the UK and internationally. Having worked in both the private and public sectors, clients include Ernst & Young, BBC, Nokia Siemens Networks, NHS, VISA, O2, Dunhill and Ericsson and many more.
