His expertise stems from over 20 years of consulting, coaching, speaking, and training experience on future-proofing, strategic decision making and planning, and cognitive bias risk management.

In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as a quality professional will dramatically improve your ability to recognize covert risks and help other quality professionals do so as well, in the post-COVID recovery and beyond.

Cutting-edge research in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral economics show that we all tend to miss risks in a time of change due to unconscious dangerous judgment errors called cognitive biases. Mental blind spots such as the ostrich effect and confirmation bias cause us to deny uncomfortable facts about risks, even serious and obvious ones, due to how our brains are wired. Even when we recognize such risks, our colleagues and business partners often miss them. Our typical methods of trying to convince others through facts and arguments often fail, leading to unnecessary conflicts and often disastrously bad decisions.

This presentation will offer you case studies, best practices, and groundbreaking research to provide you with the most critical skills and take-aways that you need to help yourself recognize and avoid such risks and successfully convince your collaborators to do so.
