Thank you for your booking. We'll email you confirmation of your registration.
Please use form to see pricing info for all options - early bird discounts are already built into the form & prices go up over time. You will not send any data until you hit submit button.
By booking here, you accept that from 24 hours after submission bookings may be substituted but not refunded and that payment is due unless non-attendance has been positively communicated with the organisers within the 24 hours. We can offer later events and we have a returns policy, if you or your substitute are not satisfied with the event, after attending. The Decision course is designed for a wide audience.
The goal of the Decision course is to help non-mathematician decision-makers and leaders see how to approach and make better decisions using decision inference and probability logic, working better with their teams. It'll be another string to their bow, potentially opening up many prosperous avenues. Attendees of the course may be senior executives or officers in corporates and government positions, who will come away better able to lead teams in strategy, AI, ML and general business development decisionmaking based on extended logic of probability. As a participant, you will come away with a number of templates and practical examples of decisionmaking using Bayes' and inductive logic.
You are warmly welcomed to join us in Cambridge, UK this summer 2023. Many have said how much they have appetite for meeting up again. Here is a great opportunity to do exactly that. I very much hope you will come to this new and unique decision-making course this summer!
Dr J Hayward MBA (Cantab.), Founder Director, CIR
To enable non-mathematician decisionmakers to work with their teams better to make optimal decisions using extended probability logic and inference.
The programme is designed for busy senior executives, focused but with time for networking and relationship-building over the two days, in good hotels and beautiful city venues, such as Cambridge, UK. As such, it could be taken as a highly productive off-site experience away for team members, likely in the below roles. A basic grounding in 'high school' mathematics would be useful. A degree in other scientific or numerate subjects, including MBAs, is great, but also not a prerequisite. The course has been tested!

We aim to help develop your organisation's success via insights and meeting well-connected people. CIR was founded in 2002, since when there have been 55 conference days for 4,500 participants, including 525 speakers covering industrial, manufacturing and materials, software, circular economy, energy, transport and built environment. We are ready to deliver this brand new decision-making course, excited by this development in our journey.
This is the home of the High Value Manufacturing, HEAT, SHIFT, Circular Economy, Advanced Materials and Graphene, Cleanpower & Smart Grids Conference Summit event series. The series were founded in 2002. We have brought together large business, government agencies, inventors with entrepreneurial commercialisers, investors and the supporting business network and supply chains.
Dr Hayward has a Ph.D., M.Math and MBA from Cambridge University. The Ph.D was in applied mathematics and included studies of coherence in quantum gravity. He worked as a quant in research at a top tier investment house in London, looking at implied probability distributions and optimal strategies for trading securities such as foreign exchange currency pairs, and on portfolio optimisation in the bond markets. He took an MBA at the Cambridge Judge Business School which had modules in statistics, but which focused on frequentist methods only. As a contractor for the past 20 years, he has helped a range of businesses with option prioritisation in strategic decisions, including for example with the chip design leader, Arm. He has had a passion for and belief in Bayesian methods for a number of years and has created a course to offer this excellent decision making process and method to leaders who are not mathematicians in a concise and accessible form.
