MONDAY 12th November 2018

2.30pm-3.30pm

This talk examines the scientific basis of the decision-making process of an important American collector, Eli Lilly Jr., CEO of the Lilly Company in Indianapolis, USA.   This is possible because of well-documented letters between Lilly and his initial dealer, C.T. Loo. By applying newly discovered neuro and behavioral science concepts to the discussions between the two, we see their decisions in a new light, one that can be applied to our own lives as well.
