Opening Keynote – Christina Goldschmidt – Decision Making in a Time of Uncertainty

Waterloo Salon 1-4

We continue to be faced with compounding uncertain times.  As Design Leaders, we are looked to by our teams for the answers, inducing anxiety for us.  In these uncertain times, normal business frameworks don’t always lead to an obvious solution. We encourage our teams to access their subconscious for brainstorming to solve creative problems, but we also deserve techniques to access our subconscious to help unlock all of our decision making. This talk will detail practical methods to help make decisions by looking at problems differently and alleviating anxiety and stress around decision making. There might be some surprise twists along the way.
