“David did such an amazing job delivering a keynote speech opening up the Future of Mining Forum event in London. David gave a very thought-provoking speech which kept the audience on the edge of their seats throughout the whole presentation. The talk was quite different from any other business presentation we have ever had.

David was not only very knowledgeable but also came across as deeply passionate about the topic of the discussion. David challenged beliefs and perspectives of many in the audience which lead to a great debate. We overheard multiple conversations at the reception breaks discussion David’s presentation. Guests felt challenged but inspired”.

A credit-doped economy, yet again: can anything be done to avert the next financial crisis?

Cognitive biases and behavioural heuristics: detrimental evolutionary residues or superior decision-making tools?

He applies the theories in his books to modern day events to make predictions on geopolitics. As you may know, David Murrin predicted both Brexit and Trump well in advance of almost anyone. David also speaks at many top events and conferences and will only be in Cape Town for two days.
