Agenda Now Published, Adding Two Keynotes

by Responsible Gambling Council | Jan 16, 2015 11:54 AM

Newscan (Vol. 17, Issue 2)

At Discovery 2015, we’re digging even deeper with an agenda that challenges us to examine the tensions between persuasion, prohibition and personal change—how do we strike the right balance?

In this jam-packed agenda, you’ll find sessions that ask: When does “nudging” work, and when are bans the answer? How much family involvement is appropriate? Should reinstatement after self-exclusion come with any special conditions? And so much more.

Two More Keynote Speakers

Adding to sessions featuring Sam Polk and Barry Schwartz, Discovery 2015 will include two more thought-provoking keynote presentations.

Howard Shaffer looks at the state of knowledge in the gambling field and asks: are we poised for a revolutionary moment?

When it comes to poker, does RG messaging fall on deaf ears? We’ll hear from Daniel Negreanu, the highest earning tournament poker player of all time.
