Social Sciences

Our speakers on the social sciences present fascinating keynote speeches on how humans operate on a micro and macro level - within the depths of their brains as well as within society as a whole. Covering subjects such as anthropology, psychology, and sociology, APB's social science speakers not only discuss these fields in terms of their educational value but offer ways of applying them for everyday use - in business and other organizations.
