Leonard Mlodinow, author of The Drunkard's Walk: How Randomness Rules Our
Lives will be PWL Capital's keynote speaker.
MONTREAL, Sept. 11 /CNW Telbec/ - From the stock market crash to
unemployment rates, election results to the winner of the World Series,
Hollywood stardom to college admissions, we like to believe our world is
governed by order and logic. Yet acclaimed writer and scientist Leonard
Mlodinow argues that most successes and failures are actually the result of
"fortuitous circumstances," and we'll judge them incorrectly if we don't
accept the fact that randomness rules.
Dr. Leonard Mlodinow, a born storyteller and with an imaginative
approach, will vividly demonstrate how randomness, change, and probability
reveal a tremendous amount about our daily lives, and how we frequently
misinterpret the significance of everything from a casual conversation to a
major financial setback. By applying the mathematical and psychological
principles behind concepts like expectancy bias, standard deviation, and
statistical reasoning to real world circumstances, Mlodinow shows us just how
little we actually control.
Dr. Mlodinow has written several books, including two which he
co-authored with Stephen Hawking, A Briefer History of Time - published in
2008, and The Grand Design - available as of October 2009. Dr. Mlodinow, a
noted mathematician and physicist, is a professor at the California Institute
of Technology (Caltech) and is a regular contributor to the Wall Street
Journal, New York Times, Forbes and Newsweek.
PWL Capital is thrilled to host Leonard Mlodinow as our keynote speaker
at a series of exclusive presentations in Toronto - September 22nd, in Ottawa
- September 23rd and in Montreal - September 24th.
