Annie Duke

Annie Duke has leveraged her expertise in the science of smart decision making to excel at pursuits as varied as championship poker to public speaking. For two decades, Annie was one of the top poker players in the world. In 2004, she bested a field of 234 players to win her first World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet. As a professional poker player, Ms. Duke was awarded a National Science Foundation Fellowship to study Cognitive Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Marrying her academic studies in cognitive psychology with decision making lessons gained through her experience at the poker table, Ms. Duke now spends her time writing, coaching and speaking on a range of topics such as decision fitness, emotional control, productive decision groups and embracing uncertainty. Annie is a master storyteller, having performed three times for The Moth, an organization that preserves the art of spoken word storytelling. Ms. Duke has written five books and raised more than $18 million for charities. She is a cofounder of HowIDecide.org, a member of the National Board of After-School All-Stars and a member of the NationSwell Council. In 2016 she joined the board of directors of the Franklin Institute, one of America’s oldest and greatest science museums.
