This year’s presentation will feature Professor Cliff Nass, from Stanford’s Department of Communications.  Professor Nass will speak about Distraction in the Workplace: The short- and long-term effects and some possible solutions.

The session will be followed by the participants choice in a round of golf or wine tasting.
