"This talk should be a book!"

-Jason Sudy

Is This [Joke] Appropriate?


A fun, funny, and thoughtful exploration of Risk Analysis by examining the undesired consequences of inappropriate jokes.


"Don't poke the bear" is an old saying that usually means "Don't do things that are likely to cause trouble".


Can jokes cause trouble? Sometimes. But when, and how can you know? And more importantly, how can you avoid inappropriate jokes?


This talk will address these questions using examples, explanations, and exploration. But don't let the talk title fool you! It also provides a functional framework that helps avoid inappropriate jokes (and many other risks) and makes it all applicable to you and your job!
