Henry described this in depth talks

“Here we look at decision making and risk reduction. We offer a more in-depth insight into strategies you can use to to help manage risk. But it’s the reinforcement of applying these strategies and how to deal with the impulsive action ‘traps’, i.e. not applying our experience and knowledge that then leads to accidents, that we explore in all talks”.
