Civilisation is founded on the human urge to make things and shape their worlds; that is to engineer. But today’s unprecedented pace of change leaves many people wondering what new technologies are doing to our lives. Has social media robbed us of our privacy and fed us with false information? Are robots going to take our jobs? And has our demand for energy driven the Earth’s climate to the edge of catastrophe?

Drawing on his own experiences as the former CEO of BP, as an engineer and as an author, John Browne is uniquely situated to answer these weighty questions. He will present an impassioned vision for why it is crucial we do not put the brakes on innovation. We can keep moving forwards, towards a brighter future.
