Presentations by Dr. Maas

To be a peak performer in school, in your profession, and as an athlete you need to be fully alert, dynamic, energetic, in a good mood, and cognitively sharp.  You must be able to concentrate, remember, have great reaction time, make critical and creative decisions, communicate persuasively, and be productive all day long.  None of this is possible without quality sleep.  Furthermore, healthy sleep has been proven to be the single most important determinant in predicting longevity.  It is more influential than diet, exercise, or heredity- but our modern culture has become a study in sleep deprivation.  We must learn to value sleep, yet most of us know very little about the incredibly dynamic activity that occurs during the course of each night, and how it affects health, happiness, and athletic or other work performance.

We offer sleep presentations in the form of keynote addresses, seminars, and workshops.  Programs can be fitted to sessions ranging from 30 minutes to 2 hours and are also offered as full day workshops.  All of these presentations are tailor made to your audience, addressing their particular needs.

These multi-media presentations consistently receive standing ovations and highest accolades for “great take-away value” from athletic teams to corporate, medical, academic, and general audiences.  In each of his programs, Dr. Maas explores the nature of sleep, focusing on such questions as:


  • Why are most people sleep deprived?
  • What are the consequences of sleep deprivation on cognition, performance, health, and lifespan?
  • What are the five stages of nocturnal sleep and how important are they to daytime functioning?
  • What does recent brain imagery (fMRI’s) research on thinking, performance and athleticism show that proves the need for maximum sleep each night?
  • How can you increase your athletic performance overnight?
  • How can you quickly overcome jet fatigue?
  • Is napping healthy? How long should naps be?
  • What causes and cures insomnia?
  • How do you establish a great bedroom environment for maximum sleep quality?
  • What are the “Three Golden Rules” and the “Top Ten Sleep Strategies” that will assure you a great night’s sleep and better athletic performance tomorrow?


The information provided in these presentations will increase daytime alertness, psychological mood, productivity, creativity, athletic prowess, general health, and most definitely, your quality of life.
