Boris Maciejovsky, a former TEDxUCR speaker and associate professor of management at the UCR School of Business Administration, will be leading a workshop on Oct. 27. The session will focus on decision-making.

The workshop titled, “How Decision-Making Affects Your Shopping Habits,” is part of the life skills workshops sponsored by the UCR Student Recreation Center.

Maciejovsky is one of many speakers who have participated in past TEDxUCR conferences, which are independently-organized on campus.

It is not too late to apply to be a TEDxUCR speaker in 2017. The application deadline is Saturday, Nov. 5. Interested participants must submit their idea in 250 words or less, along with a two-minute video. Some of the locally produced talks are included in the main TED website. TED’s mission is to share “ideas worth spreading.”

In Thursday’s workshop by Maciejovsky, he will elaborate beyond standard consumer decisions. Maciejovsky said his session will further develop the topic to encompass everyday life decisions, such as exercising more, eating better, and dating.

Maciejovsky will also highlight:

  • How we value things and how we come up with these valuations;
  • How accurate we are in predicting our future emotions;
  • How we can design incentives to improve our decisions.

The event is free and open to the UCR community. It will take place from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27, at the Student Recreation Center MRP E. Registration is recommended to attend (click on life skills leadership workshop 1).
