Join Nobel Prize winner Daniel Kahneman to discuss his unique contribution to academic thought, business practice, decision making and our understanding of what it is to be human in a complex world.

His research into how cognitive biases impact human judgment made behavioural economics possible, he’s challenged our thinking about everything (even about thinking!) and he’s arguably the world’s most influential living psychologist.

Fellow Nobel laureate Professor Richard H. Thaler called Professor Kahneman’s body of work ‘one of the most important accomplishments of 20th century science.’

His best-selling book Thinking, Fast and Slow, is a ground-breaking tour of the mind.

Noise, Professor Kahneman’s latest book, is an exploration of systemic flaws in human judgment and offers a simple process for how people and organisations can make better decisions.

Professor Kahneman is a profound thinker whose work also inspires straightforward solutions.
