Highlights from our speaker's background in security service work, and the development of Dark Minds.

Looking at the dynamic of the connection between financier and founder, and how it can be distorted or manipulated.

How positive and negative bias, and the halo effect can affect our view of companies, founders and the future.

How pressure and crisis can cause stress, how to manage it, and how people can be helped to recover from it.

How attitude and approach shape success, how a positive mindset can underpin growth, and how negative thinking can induce a downward spiral.

Looking at the range of emotional problems which can occur, and the most common mental health disorders a financier might encounter.

A look at the second day and the practical activities we will cover so participants can prepare mentally.

Exploring a real situation in the context of risk, resilience factors and likely outcomes - against a backdrop of an evolving transaction.

Looking at how situations can trigger extremes of behaviour, the damage which can result, and how this can be detected early.

The ways in which lying and misdirection can unbalance the relationship between financier and founder(s).

How elite agencies vet and assess human resources, and how profiling can be utilised in finance.

Using the techniques of structured questioning and subtle interrogation to uncover underlying truths.

Audience questions will be answered in order of upvotes.
