With the stellar weather upon us, seems like everyone has a case of spring fever.   Speaking of ' irrational behaviour'... Dan Ariely,  social scientist and  International best selling author of Predictably Irrational will be in town promoting his latest book The Upside of Irrationality.  Unless you are in the press corp, you won't have much luck getting a peek of him, but I'm pleased to announce that Dan Ariely will be speaking exclusively for the AMA Connect networking series on June 16th at The Empire Lounge in Yorkville.  Your ticket price not only includes your first cocktail and Hors d'oeuvres, but also includes a copy of Ariely's book - The Upside of Irrationality  exploring provocative topics such as:

  • Why can large bonuses make CEOs less productive?
  • How can confusing directions actually help us?
  • Why is revenge so important to us?
  • Why is there such a big difference between what we think will make us happy and what really makes us happy?
