Participants at Dr. Schultz´s presentations have described them as "energized and energizing",
"sensitive and respectful", "falling at the intersection
of neuroscience, education and mental health" and "entertaining, interactive and instructive, with a realistic focus on the practical."
Presentations can be single events (conference session, keynote presentation), or part of a longer "course" ranging from a half day to several days, either back–to–back, or spread out over an extended period of time. In schools, presentations can be combined with consultations. This is the ideal approach for maximum impact and lasting change.
