Event Details

Learn what really drives your decisions and how you can be more strategic about your decision-making with Dr Valentina Ferretti, fellow at the LSE.

It is estimated that an adult makes about 35,000 remotely conscious decisions every day. Decision-making is a central aspect of your personal and professional life, but decisions can be difficult to arrive at in the presence of multiple objectives, or differences of opinion with others.

Following our hugely successful one-day MBA, where Dr Valentina Ferretti, fellow in decision science at the London School of Economics and Political Science, engaged the audience with her interactive session on decision-making, we have invited her to deliver her own evening class.

Valentina will help you hone your ability to make better decisions by providing solutions for each of the key traps hindering your decision-making processes. You will develop awareness of your unconscious biases and use decision analytics to debias your judgments.

This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in enhancing their decision-making capabilities. The evening will be highly experiential, with a mix of thought experiments and puzzles, feedback and group discussion.


  • Why do we need to make better decisions?
  • How people make choices: intuition v deliberate thinking process 
  • What are the key decision traps we tend to fall into?
  • How to help others make better decisions in situations where stakes are high and there are multiple objectives
  • Where can we apply these tools?

Tutor profile

Dr Valentina Ferretti is a fellow in decision science in the department of management of the London School of Economics and Political Science and a visiting lecturer at the University of Oxford and École Centrale Paris.

“Very engaging and interesting.”
