Risk Taking and Decision Making Online webinar with Caspar Berry

Understanding how we make decisions and deal with risk can make us all better at what we do. The fundamentals of risk and decision-making cut to the heart of the ways in which we allocate resources, plan our time, do more with less and maximise the returns from all of our investments in life.

In this session, Caspar will speak in his capacity as a former professional poker player who lived and worked in Las Vegas for three years and went on to become the UK’s premier poker TV commentator and the poker advisor on Casino Royale. He uses the metaphor of poker as a vehicle to communicate universally resonant messages around the need for individuals and companies to take risk and seize opportunities.

This session is taking place 15th December 2020 14.00-15.30

Please email futurefocusedfinance@nhs.net to book your place.
