Maurice Ewing, PhD
My primary goal in my professional life is to help people make better decisions and to live with the ones they've already made. Having worked in over 40 countries spanning 4 continents as a consultant, trainer and banking executive, I have seen many things and benefitted from the wisdom of many others. I was also a student (albeit a dimwitted, but eager one) of many giant thinkers at Princeton, including: Daniel Kahneman, John Nash, Fisher Black (visiting), Milton Friedman (visiting) and Ben Bernanke. Now I am trying to give back. Leveraging my experiences and incorporating insights from cognitive neuroscience and decision science, my forthcoming book, "Surprise: How to Handle It", discusses how we can greet the unexpected events that permeate our business and every day lives in a way that will always enrich the experience and leave us improved.
