Gerald worked in international finance in London, Hong Kong and Switzerland. He has since published The Tangled World and Two Speed World, exploring the impact of both explosive and gradual change. In presentations he shows how we misunderstand risks and have too narrow a view of models and decision making. With no perfect solutions and many ‘known unknowns’, we are often influenced by context and instinctive biases rather than rational analysis.

Nicholas applies cognitive and social psychology to understand why investors make the decisions the make, despite evidence often suggesting they shouldn’t. An acclaimed academic and expert in behavioural economics he has studied areas including the financial crisis and long-term decision-making.

The author of Risk Savvy: How To Make Good Decisions, Gerd Gigerenzer has become one of the foremost names in the understanding of judgement and decision-making. Taking an opposing view to the likes of Daniel Kahneman, Gerd argues the best choices are made not by rationally considering all the probable factors, but through experience and the use of memory and recognition of a situation.

The presenter of BBC’s More or Less, FT columnist, Oxford Fellow and million-selling business author is a compelling storyteller on economics, management, psychology and the unexpected bits in between. He’s scrutinised politicians’ use of statistics, highlighted the necessity of failure, examined what innovation is, and questioned big data. “We’re in danger of becoming obsessed with the forest but missing the trees; what counts is individual customers and staff.”

The author of Eyes Wide Open: How to make smart decisions in a confusing world and IOU: The Debt Threat believes we are witnessing the ‘death of a paradigm’, though there will be denial and resistance from the defenders of the old faith. The ITV Economics Editor sees the theory that gave markets more power than states as defunct. Individual countries have to have the freedom to determine policies to meet their own needs, and the smartest politicians will be those who remake the world-view rather than recreate the facts.

Alongside his commercial practice Binna has served on an inquiry into equal opportunities in the senior civil service, and published The Value of Difference. Drawing on a plethora of data he shows that we’re all biased. When we come under pressure, prejudice rises to the surface; but believing we’re acting fairly, we tend to blame others’ bias rather than our own. Binna explains how to minimise the impact, instruct ourselves to be fair and look at all perspectives.

Erwann heads the Risk Management Center at the world’s oldest business school, and chairs the OECD Advisory Board looking at financial management of large-scale catastrophes. Erwann believes that since disasters cannot always be prevented, organisations should understand the risks and create a strategy to deal with them. As in his Irrational Economist book, presentations draw on both behavioural economics and neuroscience to help protect company assets.

Ranked in the top ten most influential business thinkers in the world, Kjell explains why benchmarking will merely get companies to the middle of the pack. In a consumer Europe of 600 regions, with rapidly changing demographics, organisations have to be first-rate versions of themselves and not second-rate copies of others. It is all about creating distinction.

The co-author of Funky Business has been ranked amongst the world’s ten most influential business thinkers. Jonas looks at how corporations can prepare for the next turn of the wheel. How can a business profit from the ‘wisdom of crowds’? How can it work on real-time feedback, and become as good at innovation as it used to be at exploitation? Forget dry theories; Jonas offers an entertaining, challenging and occasionally frightening look at the future.
