Two Keynotes Announced for Discovery 2015

Nov 13, 2014

We are pleased to announce two of the keynote speakers who will be joining us at Discovery 2015:
Barry Schwarz
Barry Schwartz on the Paradox of Choice

If some choice is good, more choice is better, right? In his ground breaking work, Barry Schwartz has found evidence that there can be too much of a good thing—that there is a point where options paralyze rather than liberate.

From drug plans to financial services, when confronted with overwhelming choices the vast majority of us will either end up unhappy with our choice, or choose to not make a choice at all.

Sam Polk
A Feature Interview with Sam Polk

At age 30, Sam Polk walked away from Wall Street, where he was a head trader at one of the world's largest hedge funds. Four years later, he runs a non-profit that helps struggling families. He gives talks about getting sober to people in jails, juvenile detention centres and psych wards.

I thought money would make me happy, safe, and important. Instead, I felt empty. For several years, I thought I just hadn’t made enough money.
