    Presenter - Chris Booth from McKellens Ltd

    Topic - Stupidity - Why Irrationality Changes Everything!

    Synopsis:Everything that happens in our life happens for a reason and sometimes the reason it happens is because we have been stupid and we have made bad decisions! Our decisions determine the quality of our results and when we make stupid decisions we are going to get stupid results. But don't panic - because stupidity is a brilliant commercial opportunity for whatever line of business you are in!! We are looking at some deadly serious Nobel Prize winning economics from Daniel Kahneman and his book Thinking, Fast and Slow. Now this sounds all a bit surreal doesn't it? But I can assure you that by the end of the session we will have seen how we make decisions and how we can protect ourselves and prevent irrationality from hurting us.Content:In this session on irrationality we will discover how we really make decisions and how we are affected by those decisions. We will look at the areas of death, taxes and the bit in the middle which makes it all worthwhile and how by changing what appears to be small insignificant things can have a dramatic impact on the outcomes we can expect. But also we will be looking at why irrationality is probably the most exciting and brilliant commercial opportunity there is. We will look at the two golden rules of irrationality and how we can apply them in our own businesses as well as five other real life examples of where irrationality really does change everything.About The Presenter:Chris Booth is a business growth advisor, professional speaker and Chartered Accountant.
