Watch ISF's First Live Online Webinar Event - RISK, Hosted by Saira Shah
How do we assess risk? Do we control our fear, or does it control us?
On November 11th, ISF held its first live webinar hosted by Saira Shah. She was joined by a panel of experts to discuss the science of RISK and how we process it.
We’ll be adding more interviews to this page in the coming days and weeks, to expand our understanding of this complex subject — and also sharing some of Idries Shah’s related ideas.
