Friday 24 January 2020
Drinks from 7pm, lecture starts 7.30pm
£12 inc. entrance to the museum & a glass of wine
An evening of short talks designed to challenge, inspire… and pack a punch.
Join Lizzie Hodgson, founder and director of ThinkNation for a night of quick thinking and lighting talks. Taking inspiration from our show Disruption, Devotion + Distributism Lizzie will present a series of short talks to get you thinking.
Lightning Talks are short presentations of around 5 minutes long. Their purpose is to get to the core of an issue or topic quickly and succinctly, while educating, inspiring or challenging the audience. Because of their brevity, they are often fast-paced but very engaging.
