In this engaging, interactive, and entertaining presentation, you as a government meeting professional will dramatically improve your future-proofing skills for a post-pandemic world. Future-proofing refers to the capacity to forecast and address threats while also anticipating and seizing golden opportunities. We can all agree that future-proofing is key to success in our increasingly disrupted world, yet it’s a surprisingly difficult practice to get right. That’s due to mental blindspots and judgment errors: what scientists in cognitive neuroscience and behavioral economics call cognitive biases. Fortunately, cutting-edge studies have uncovered effective future-proofing techniques that address such cognitive biases. This presentation combines case studies, best practices, and groundbreaking research in future-proofing, to give you and your team the most critical skills and take-aways to excel at anticipating and defeating future threats while seizing opportunities.


Dr. Gleb Tsipursky is an internationally recognized thought leader on a mission to protect leaders from dangerous judgment errors known as cognitive biases by developing the most effective decision-making strategies.
