The Poker MBA workshop takes you inside the high-stakes world of poker to show that winning at poker and winning at business are one and the same. Through the lens of poker, the participants will learn sophisticated concepts such as expected value, regression to the mean, and discounted cash flows—all in a format that is entertaining and easy to understand.

Whether you are an intern, a department manager, a salesperson, an entrepreneur, or the CEO of a major company, basic poker skills can be used to add to your business success. By understanding winning poker strategy, you’ll learn how to read people, close deals, negotiate contracts, motivate employees, build a brand, create customer loyalty, and make day-to-day business decisions that will contribute to your bottom line.

Just as I make information accessible through humor and story-telling in my writing, I bring the same approach to my speaking. I deliver personalized keynote speeches that educate, entertain, and empower. In this 60-minute experience, you'll learn what goes on in a world-class poker player's mind whether they're in the world series of poker or in the boardroom.

Greg Dinkin is a decisions coach, keynote speaker, and author.

He was fat, broke, and stuck and learned the hard way that strategic tactics could only take him so far. When he combined the “poker mindset” with “mindfulness,” he won $100,000 at the World Series of Poker, lost 100 pounds, and built a world-class literary agency. In his acclaimed TEDxTalk on “Mind Shift”, Greg outlines an effective approach on how you can master your fears and make winning decisions to live a fulfilling life.

Greg draws on Eastern practices he learned while living in Thailand, studying with masters, and earning certification as a Health Coach. The former PwC consultant combines his pragmatic 'poker mindset' and MBA in finance with holistic practices to show you that to make winning decisions in business, love, and life, you must first master yourself.

Greg is the author of The Poker MBA (Random House), The Leading Man (Vital), The Finance Doctor (Vital), and Amarillo Slim’s memoirs (HarperCollins).
