Speaker: Rolf Dobelli
Chair: Dr Alec Morton
If you have ever doubted that you have made a good decision this lecture is for you. We spend years if not decades being on the "wrong track" because of our decisions and sometimes we "blindly" follow the "pack".
Rolf Dobelli argues that we are swayed by cognitive biases when making decisions. By knowing what they are and how to spot them, we can avoid them and make better choices. In this lecture, Rolf will guide us through the most common errors of judgement and how to avoid them. It will transform your decision making – at work, at home, every day.
Rolf Dobelli is a Swiss writer and entrepreneur. He has an MBA and a PhD in economic philosophy from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and is a co-founder of getAbstract, the world's leading provider of book summaries. Dobelli is also founder and curator of Zurich.Minds, an invitation-only community of the most distinguished thinkers, scientists and artists. His book, The Art of Thinking Clearly| has sold in over 17 languages and has been a massive bestseller in Europe.

Joining the London European Club which is run by volunteers was a good decision. Not RSVPing accurately would be a bad decision because you will become a "former member".
