2023 Keynote: Preparing for a Breakthrough

Sometimes even the best leaders get stuck when in search of progress. Adam Alter will provide helpful advice from his latest book, Anatomy of a Breakthrough: How to Get Unstuck When It Matters Most. His previous books Irresistible and Drunk Tank Pink were New York Times bestsellers. Adam’s academic research focuses on judgment and decision-making and social psychology, with a particular interest in the sometimes surprising effects of subtle cues in the environment on human cognition and behavior. His research has been published widely in academic journals, and featured in dozens of TV, radio and print outlets around the world.
