Join Professor Milan Radosavljevic, Vice-Principal of Research, Innovation & Engagement as he virtually delivers his UWS Inaugural Lecture on Wednesday 21 April 2021 from 4pm - 5pm (BST).
In his Lecture - which will also involve some opportunity for audience questions – Prof. Radosavljevic will be exploring the topic of:
Chaos, Black Swans & Purpose
It seems obvious that a single unpredictable event can change everything and while many often think of something monumental, it is far easier to miss most of these ‘events’. This is a personal reflection on the past 30+ years of seemingly random walking through time that has taught a lesson on how to thrive when exposed to uncertainty.
