The Science of Success

We asked the experts to help us understand the new scientific secrets of success – and at Salon London, on the 19th April, they'll be explaining exactly what it takes...

1. Wildly overestimate your own abilities.

The University of Birmingham's Professor of Philosophy Lisa Bortolotti will explain how overestimating your own brilliance – almost to the point of delusion - could pave the way to the good life.

2. Be in the winning group.

Mark Maslin, Professor of Climatology at UCL and author of The Cradle of Humanity, will explain how we Homo sapiens became the most devastatingly successful of all the bipedal apes.

3. Have plenty of one crucial ingredient.

Award-winning Professor of Strategy and behavioural economist Dr Chengwei Liu has run the numbers and cracked the code. Hear him reveal the number one and most overlooked factor in success.

We'll be at The Hospital Club, Covent Garden. Doors open at 7pm. Tickets are £15 and can be purchased here. Or why not become a member?
