    How to make smart decisions in a complex world

    • “Invaluable for anyone making tough decisions in today’s complex world” Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director of McKinsey & Co.
    • We make 10,000 decisions as day. 277 just about food. But whilst it doesn’t matter really if you choose a cappuccino over a latte when it comes to high stakes decisions – at home or at work – the choices you make really do matter.
    • Yet we think surprisingly little about how it is we come to decisions.
    • Instead we typically repeat decision-making strategies that have worked for us in the past.
    • We turn to experts, trust our guts, run options by our colleagues, go with what just feels right.
    • As bestselling author and professor Noreena Hertz will argue each  of these strategies can lead us badly astray.
    • In this  keynote speech, Hertz encourages the audience to identify their own potential thinking and decision-making traps and biases, but also lays out the concrete steps we all can take in the digital era  to become smarter and wiser decision makers ourselves
