Important Keynote Presentation Note

 

Michael Lewis
Financial journalist and New York Times best-selling author 

Sponsored by York Programs & Wilson Elser

Mr. Lewis prefers to deliver his presentation in an interview format to ensure he discusses areas of interest for each specific group. We have chosen to have two interviewers for Mr. Lewis.

His most recent work in The Undoing Project focuses on how individuals make decisions and all the factors that affect them. A frequent presenter at our events, retired Navy SEAL, Coleman Ruiz, has done a great deal of study regarding decision theory so we have asked him to join TMPAA President, Tony Campisi, for this interview.
