Modern life is full of chance encounters, changing plans, delayed journeys, and human errors. But what if we could turn such unpredictability into positive outcomes? Bestselling author, NYU/London School of Economics professor, and serial entrepreneur Dr. Christian Busch has spent a decade exploring how, if acted upon, unexpected moments can enhance our worldview, expand our social circles, and create new opportunities for meaning, innovation, and impact. In this book talk, Christian will share how we can use the unknown as a pathway to more purpose and success, for companies and individuals alike. This talk will enable you to:
– Learn about the science of serendipity (unexpected good luck) — what it is and how it can be leveraged.
– Harness concrete practices on how to cultivate serendipity for meaning, innovation, and impact.
