Guest Keynote: The Art of Thinking Clearly

Our brain is optimized for a hunter and gatherer existence. Today, we live in a completely different environment. This leads to systematic thinking errors — errors that can be devastating for your money, your career, your happiness. Thinking clearly is possible. However, only few people achieve it. Rolf Dobelli will present to you the most consequential thinking traps and how to avoid them. Success is the result of independent thinking. Here, you will learn how to do it.
