Event Details

From the one person shop on up, a perennial entrepreneurial priority is the maximization of human resources. Of course, understanding both our own minds and those of all we encounter inside and outside our businesses is most challenging and error prone. While there are no surefire formulas to insight, what is the best guidance of psychology in attempting such connections?

Our speaker is an acclaimed explorer of those mysteries of inner space, capable of moving "mind- reading" from the realm of pure myth towards more comprehensible reality. The author of Mindwise, while he won't supply everyone with customized lie detectors, his talk is sure to provide with entertaining insights to separate the fact from fiction of human motivations.


Booth students and faculty and Entrepreneurial Roundtable members:  $15 thru April 13, then $20.

General public:  $20 thru April 13, then $25.
