We have the great pleasure and honour to welcome you to meet with Nik Gowing, the director and founder of Thinking the Unthinkable.

Nik was the main news presenter for BBC World News (1996-2014), and he has 35 years of analytical experience in diplomacy, defence and international security. In 2018 Nik Gowing along with Chris Langdon released the book Thinking the Unthinkable: A new imperative for leadership in the digital age.

The book is an investigation into why leaders have appeared more unable or unwilling than ever to anticipate the most significant issues of our time. In an era of 'wicked problems' why are current leadership behaviours and culture apparently not fit for purpose? What are the causes of so many failures in policy and strategic forecasting? Are they human frailties? Or are they systemic failures to embrace smartly new realities? Through hundreds of interviews and conversations, Nik Gowing and Chris Langdon have analysed the deep new challenges to the human capacity of leaders at the highest keels to accept, understand, embrace then handle the extraordinary processes of change and disruption.

Seize the opportunity to meet with Nik and take part in an interactive discussion followed by a Q&A.

Food and drinks will be served throughout the evening.

Terms & Conditions: Bookings are non-refundable, but at the discretion of the organiser, you can change the name of the person attending. For this, please contact events@scc.org.uk
