Audira | Think Tank for Hearing
Curtis began his career in design and marketing before making the transition into hearing healthcare in 2001. He is now a full time hearing care professional, director of an independent audiology practice in the UK, and the founder of an online think-tank called audira.info. Curtis has lectured internationally in the US, Europe, Canada and Australia on shaping society's attitudes towards hearing care and on the role of the hearing healthcare professional in an increasingly commoditised and technology-driven world. In 2013 he won the Ida Institute's award for best public awareness campaign which has since been used in the United States and across Europe and translated into 12 different languages. His interests include bio-semiotics, cybernetics, complexity, neuropsychology or psycholinguistics. He is particularly interested in the bio-psychosocial interactions of hearing on wellbeing and is currently studying part-time for a Masters by Research examining the effects of mishearing on the brain's language networks.
