Think Like A Freak
Taking the successful Freakonomics ideas to the next level, Dubner offers an engaging NEW program, based on the highly anticipated new book of the same name, that offers a toolkit to help people gain interesting insights on problem solving in their personal and professional lives. Each idea presented by Dubner will be illustrated by a story or example, in the ever-popular counterintuitive Freakonomics style, that will provide your audience with illuminating thoughts for profitable thinking!
Business & Management Lessons from Freakonomics & SuperFreakonomics
In this engaging presentation, Dubner addresses the fact that the old rules of business just don't apply and therefore the ideas he and co-author Steven Levitt have presented in Freakonomics and SuperFreakonomics make even more sense now than they did a few years ago. It's a new world, and that demands a new way of thinking. He offers audiences a way of getting beneath the surface of modern business practices. Using humor and first-rate storytelling he discusses the sort of topics that are on every business person's mind these days: the ways to create behavior change, the incentives that work and don't work, and the value of asking unpopular questions. The difference between the Freakonomics presentation and other "economic" presentations is that while most economics presentations present great tools for coming up with answers, they don't come up with the interesting questions.
