Greg Dinkin is a Decisions Coach, Keynote Speaker, and Bestselling Author who shows you how to develop "The Winner's Mindset."
As he discussed in his TEDx talk, Greg confronted his fear by singing at an open mic in Thailand.
When Greg combined the “poker mindset” with “mindfulness,” he won $100,000 at the World Series of Poker, lost 100 pounds, and built a world-class literary agency. In his TEDxTalk on “Mind Shift”, Greg outlines an effective approach on how you can master your fears and make winning decisions to live a fulfilling life.
Greg draws on Eastern practices he learned while living at a health retreat in Thailand, studying with masters, and earning certification as a Health Coach. The former PwC consultant combines his pragmatic "poker mindset" and MBA in finance with holistic practices to show you that to make winning decisions in business, love, and life, you must first master yourself.
Greg is the author of the #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller Your Next Five Moves (Simon & Schuster), The Poker MBA (Random House), The Leading Man (Vital), The Finance Doctor (Vital), and Amarillo Slim’s memoirs (HarperCollins).
