Paul on the speaker’s podium


Last month, Paul spoke at a conference on Resilience chaired by the ex-Home Secretary John Reid, and organised by the Institute for Security and Resilience Studies at UCL.  Other speakers included ex-CEO of BP, Lord John Browne, and Andy Haldane from the Bank of England.  Paul’s topic was ‘Resilience and lessons from the banking crisis’.  His message was simple: better fewer but better; think smart; embrace failure; innovate. November also saw Paul on a North American Tour. He was the keynote speaker at a complex systems conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His presentation is here. En route, he was a guest of the Rotman School of Management at the University of Toronto, where he was invited to speak about his latest book, Positive Linking.  Whilst there, he also gave a seminar at the Fields Institute for Mathematics on the economics of recessions, a copy of the slides are here.
