Chair: Dr Alec Morton

Recorded on 11 April 2013 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

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.
