With so much fake news flying around these days, what can we really believe?

Government advisor and communications expert Hector Macdonald discusses how truths from the past, present and future are played with to create a distorted impression of reality, and how organisations use context to twist our understanding of events, quotations and people.

From art forgery to famine, to driverless cars and Coca Cola's links to the Nazis, this talk will change the way you look at the world.

Hector will be in conversation with Richard Kilgarriff, the business book columnist for Harper's Bazaar and the editorial director of Bookomi.
