We are delighted to welcome award-winning journalist and US Managing Editor for the Financial Times Gillian Tett to Second Home for an engaging discussion on the themes raised in her book The Silo Effect.

The Silo Effect is all about the benefits of working across boundaries, industries and disciplines – which is exactly what Second Home was created to foster, and why we work so hard to curate London's most inter-disciplinary range of creative companies in our building.

The book asks these basic questions: why do humans working in modern institutions collectively act in ways that sometimes seem stupid? Why do normally clever people fail to see risks and opportunities that later seem blindingly obvious? Why, as psychologist Daniel Kahneman put it, are we sometimes so “blind to our own blindness”?
