Thank you for your understanding.

We are delighted to announce that Andy Nicol, CEO of ABSTRACT will be joining us to talk about how to make good decisions.

In an increasingly complex, volatile and uncertain world, good judgement and decision making skills are crucial for both business and personal success. Decision making is critical to businesses. Research has found that decision effectiveness is 95% correlated with financial performance. Yet despite this, there is often little focus on how we can make better decisions, individually and collectively. In this masterclass, we will explore the part that our individual character and judgement play in our decision making and consider the human skills that are needed to make better decisions that will drive your business and career forward.

Andy is a former Scotland International Rugby Union player and captain, who also appeared on two British Lions tours. He now works with BBC Sport and is also the CEO of ABSTRACT, an award winning learning and development company specialising in leadership, diversity & inclusion and decision making. ABSTRACT’s Accelerate Programme, which recently won the Diversity Initiative of the Year at the Women in Finance Awards in Dublin, has so far helped over 2000 women in Scotland, England, Ireland and worldwide to develop and manage their careers.
