How Can We Make This Happen?

London, our country, the whole world: there are a lot of things we'd like to change, and a lot we need to change – these are not identical lists.  From climate change to terrorism to air pollution to political leadership to migration to the economy.  There are plenty of challenges, and the public, the citizenry, the electorate are more knowledgeable and involved than ever before due to social media.

Nic will discuss the ways in which we can Make Things Happen by looking at how individuals and groups are motivated, why and how to communicate differently with different groups, and the extent to which trust is fundamental for people working together. Nic will illustrate with examples from his recently published book, and from current media stories.  This is relevant to everyone in any organisation because we are all change agents now.
