10th EuroSciCon Conference

Congratulations to all who attended and contributed to the Paris Conference (11-12 April 2019) on Psychiatry, Psychology & Brain Studies.

A small but truly global event, as I had the opportunity to introduce contributions from Australia, Russia, Malaysia, India, Brazil, USA and UK. Thanks particularly go on Day 1 to Torie Robinson, Greg Robin and Paul Lang for their inspiring personal stories.

Also, thanks go to the Day 1 audience for their enthusiastic receiving of my keynote presentation on Good Practice in Risk Decision-Making incorporating the concept of Positive Risk-Taking that I created back in 1994. Look out for forthcoming webinar presentations and access to a full Membership Site underpinning the concept of  Positive Risk-Taking through the intricacies of working with risk.

Marilyn vos Savant said “Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.” Strengths and weaknesses are not mutually exclusive, but in this video I offer 5 reasons why we should focus more on our strengths.

Making risk decisions

Risk decisions are challenging, and can be difficult, but should not be governed by fear and a ‘what if’ syndrome. In this video I use four separate quotes to help us reflect on our decision-making processes.
