Summary

This Webinar is about how our brains work and how we process information at an unconscious level. In particular, we will look at how this process can influence our conscious thinking without us realising and lead to biases.

Of course, we all think and see things differently: our thoughts are unique. However, our brains operate in similar ways and so there are patterns to our thinking that strongly influence the conclusions we draw. In some circumstances, these conclusions are flawed: affected by the way our unconscious mind operates. Crucially, we are unaware of these errors but the patterns are predictable. This webinar explores the biases that result and the way they can influence our choices.
