    Who’s Hacking Who?

    Millennials, you’ll have to trust us, once upon a time it was as easy as having a quiet word with ‘lads’ in IT to stop anyone else looking at your email.  But now that governments, law enforcers and tower blocks of professional criminals are all at it, it aint so easy.  Of course we want to be protected in our cyberspace, but does digital state surveillance compromise our human rights and our freedom of speech? Maybe, says the Professor of Law at LSE Andrew Murray who has made this area his principal subject for research. He’ll be explaining how and why.

    Eye-to-Eye Contact!

    Make an entrance, command respect and loyalty, put down riots! RADA have made it their business to understand how best to use eye contact to affect others on the stage. Now they are coming to Salon London to help us learn the same skills to build rapport and to increase power and engagement in our own equally taxing social and work situations.  This brand new session from RADA in Business’ Sheelagh McNamara will explain the tricks and the devices used in the actors’ studio for you to put to use in the boardroom or the bedroom. The choice is yours.

    What’s at the Edge of the Internet?

    The Internet was never designed with security in mind, which means it’s hard to guarantee our safety as we travel in cyberspace.  Jamie Bartlett is the social media analyst for the think tank Demos and author of the acclaimed Dark Net. He has spent months at the farthest reaches of the ‘net to understand how those at the fringes of our digital world operate. In this session to close our series he will help us answer some very difficult questions. What’s out there? What do they want? And can we avoid being seen by them?

    5th May at The Hospital Members' Club, Covent Garden, 7pm start.
