Modern life is full of chance encounters, changing plans, delayed journeys and—yes—even pandemics. But what if we could turn such unpredictability into positive outcomes?

Dr Christian Busch (BIO below) has spent a decade exploring how, if acted upon, unexpected moments can enhance our worldview, expand our social circles, and create new opportunities.
In this talk, Christian will share how we can use uncertainty as a pathway to more purpose and success, for companies and individuals alike, drawing upon his latest book: "The Serendipity Mindset: The Art and Science of Creating Good Luck" https://www.amazon.co.uk/Serendipit …

This talk will enable you to:

* Understand the science of serendipity (how you can harness it)
* Explore serendipity in the context of COVID-19 and other times of uncertainty
* Learn how serendipity can be used as a tool for innovation and impact
