24th February 2020 | Hay Hill
How can we think about the future? What do we need to do – and who do we need to be?
We are addicted to prediction, desperate for certainty about the future but the complexity of modern life won’t provide that; experts in forecasting are reluctant to look more than 400 days out. History doesn’t repeat itself and uncertainty is now a fact of life.
So let's hear it for us humans - because as Margaret will explain in this high-tech unpredictable age, it's human skills we need - imagination, humility, bravery - now more than ever.
So don't miss the award-winning business psychologist, Margaret Heffernan (her TED talks have been viewed by over 7 million people). She's at Salon London this 24 Feb to discuss her new research - Uncharted: How to Map the Future Together - and we get to hear from her first on the eve of her publishing her work in London.
Ranging freely through history and from business to science, government to friendships, Margaret will challenge us to resist the false promises of technology and efficiency and instead to mine our own creativity and humanity for the capacity to create the futures we want and can believe in.
Come and take back the future, and get inspiration for a new decade.
This Salon will take place at the gorgeous 12 Hay Hill in Mayfair. 24th February. Doors open 6:45pm, Salon starts at 7pm.
12 Hay Hill, London
