Dr Lynda Shaw

Beat the bullies, use your brain

Lynda combined an entrepreneurial background from founding and operating three companies with her experience of working with a multinational company. Add to this mix a PhD in cognitive neuroscience and psychology, and she is uniquely well placed to recognise and help stamp out bullying in all types of scenarios. And what better place to start than in schools?

“I’m highly motivated to see young people excel in a safe environment that helps them thrive and flourish, so there is absolutely no place for bullying. I discuss the psychological profile of the bullied, the bully, the bystanders and adults. Together we put in place strategies to eradicate bullying as best we can.”

Lynda can provide the following:

  • Staff and parent events
  • Teacher conference keynotes and workshops
  • Book reading and practical lessons for students in primary school

Testimonials from Teachers

“Lynda is a unique person who presented to us to kick start our anti-bullying campaign. Her preparation is meticulous and she spent time prior to the presentation trying to get a feel about the direction we wanted to go and how her expert knowledge could cement this. Staff were left wanting more, saying they felt Lynda has so much more to offer and would welcome more CPD presented by Lynda. No regrets whatsoever, listen to her and you'll want more.”

– Martyn O’Donnell, Quintin Kynaston

“Lynda Shaw visited Cunningham Hill Junior School to speak to a class of Year 5 children on the subject of bullying. The session was built around her book Herman Homunculus, which the kids all thoroughly enjoyed. The content was age related and relevant and all children were engaged in the class discussions and activities – they were especially interested in the way that their brains worked and how different emotions had impacts on their brain’s function. I feel it was an extremely valuable session and the behaviour and attitude of the children definitely improved as a result of Lynda’s visit. As a class, we will definitely be able to utilise the information we were given.”

– Sarah Kropman, Class Teacher

"Dr Shaw has been associated with The Chalfont Community College, an outstanding school of 1800 secondary school students, for over 10 years. Dr Shaw is an outstanding role model for students and has a natural flair for communication. Her infectious enthusiasm engages students and adults. I recommend her to you unreservedly."
