INSEAD Alumni event. Have you ever made a bad decision? A really bad one? We all have. Some of us hired terrible employees, or teamed up with the wrong co-founder. Some of us chased a dream for far too long, or gave up on one way too early. Hopefully, we all learned a lot from these failures. On the afternoon of 23 February, we’re going to make a lot of bad decisions. Some really bad ones. And we’ll definitely learn a lot from our mistakes. Luckily, this time we’ll be in a safe environment: playing poker with fellow INSEAD alumni and their guests. And don’t worry if you’ve never played before, we will learn No-limit Texas Hold’em Poker during the session. Decision Boot Camp is back for a 4th time. Balazs Fogoly (MBA’06D), Chief Play Officer of Ember Associates, will facilitate his signature decision-making training session using poker. But why poker? Because it’s fun.

And poker is very similar to business: we have to make a lot of quick decisions under pressure, with limited information, managing scarce resources. And we have to constantly adapt our strategy to the ever changing environment shaped by our decisions, our competitors’ actions, and some luck. Registration starts at 1:30pm Decision Boot Camp from 2pm to 6pm with a short break Drinks and networking until 7pm Read more details about the Boot Camp. Refreshments will be served. INSEAD Alumni NAA members and a guest each: $25 INSEAD Alumni Non-NAA members and a guest each: $55

A rapidly increasing number of people have multiple passports or live outside their country of citizenship.
