Tremaine gets you thinking about your thinking - turning science and research into tools and insights that you can use right away. She keynotes on Critical Thinking in Decision Making for public sector policy makers, Your Brain on Behavioural Economics , The Impact of Emotions on Decision Making and Decision Making for Leaders Who Think. Yea, they sound like serious topics but luckily she's not serious at all! She currently travels from London.
Today, making decisions without full information, under short time frames and high levels of stress is the norm rather than the exception. As a professional decision maker, success in both your personal and professional life depends on the quality of your thinking under these conditions. Similarly, in a world where even small decisions can have enormous consequences, organisational success relies on the cumulative decisions of both leaders and staff. Given how high the stakes are, how much time do you spend specifically developing your thinking skills and those of your team?
In this essential keynote, behavioural economist Tremaine du Preez, draws on several fields shaping decision science including behavioural economics, social psychology and neuroscience to to introduce you to some foundational skills for making sound decisions under conditions of uncertainty. As an MBA lecturer and global faculty member of Duke Corporate Education, she is known for dressing down serious serious subjects and bringing theory to life and practice.
Interconnectivity, volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity are now permanent features of the business landscape along with a drive towards transparency and top-heavy regulation. Despite knowing this, both internal and external fat tail events continue to surprise and derail management teams.
Over the last two decades many of these ‘unknowable risks’ had behavioural origins making them difficult to quantify, near impossible to forecast and hard to control for. Suboptimal thinking and decision making in an organisation is such a behavioural risk. How does an organisation create an environment where staff are able to use uncertainty as a factor in their decision making and manage risk independently?
In this thought-provoking keynote behavioural economist, Tremaine du Preez, invites you to explore the risk persona of your organisation. She shares with you how your learning and development, leadership and mentoring efforts can create an environment where staff are able to function optimally under stressful and uncertain conditions.
