Keynote Speakers | 2016

We are pleased to announce Dr. Carl Hart of Columbia University and Tom Moseman of Envirosell Inc. as our 2016 keynote speakers.

Dr. Carl Hart is an associate professor of psychology and psychiatry at Columbia University. He has also published nearly 100 scientific articles in the area of neuropsychopharmacology. Dr. Hart will be presenting the keynote address on what we have learned from drugs and addiction and how we can apply those lessons on gambling. Drugs face many of the same stigma, policy, and access issues as gambling, and as such provide our industry with lessons already learned in improving social welfare.

Tom Moseman is the Senior Vice President of Envirosell Inc., a multi-national consumer behaviour research and consulting firm. Pairing research results with his extensive experience, Tom will discuss how location, design and display of responsible gambling information in a casino impacts the player’s perception of Responsible Gambling programs.
