Since 1981, Dr. Caroline Leaf has researched the human mind with particular emphasis on unlocking its vast, untapped potential. She is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist with a Masters and PhD in Communication Pathology and a BSc Logopaedics, specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology and has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity).
During her years in clinical practice and her work with thousands of underprivileged teachers and students in her hometown of South Africa and in the USA, she developed her theory (called the Geodesic Information Processing theory) of how we think, build memory and learn, as well as tools and processes that have transformed the lives of individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), learning disabilities (ADD, ADHD), autism, dementias, and mental ill-health. She has helped thousands of students and adults learn how to use their mind to detox and grow their brain and succeed in every area of their lives, including school, university and the workplace
Dr. Leaf’s You-Tubes videos, podcasts, and TV episodes have reached millions globally. Her passion is to help people see the power of the mind to change the brain, and to see the link between science and spirituality through controlling their thoughts and emotions, learning how to think and learn, and finding their sense of purpose in life.

HOST: Tripp Crosby
We’re thrilled and honored to welcome Tripp back as emcee at this year’s Leadercast Live, bringing laughter and energy to the stage. Best known as the taller half of Tripp and Tyler, a world-famous YouTube sketch comedy duo, Tripp began his career behind the camera. Tripp’s production Company Green Tricycle Studios is now the branded arm of Thruline Entertainment, and they are currently working with major brands, top Hollywood Talent, and some of the most up-and-coming producers and directors to make compelling branded entertainment.
In 2014, Saatchi & Saatchi selected Tripp as a member of the Cannes International Film Festival New Director Showcase for his work on A Conference Call in Real Life and since he has continued to direct impactful commercials and various forms of branded content for major brands (Coke, Verizon, Canon). Tripp’s first feature length movie is currently in development, and he is working closely with the city of Atlanta to help foster the rapid growth of content creation business.
If Tripp took his own advice, he’d focus exclusively on creating content, but his appearance on stage as a host or keynote speaker is constantly increasing in demand. Tripp loves inspiring people to be happier, more productive, and more present in their professional lives, and he helps hundreds of thousands do so by teaching them how to take themselves a little less seriously.
