About the event:
Our special guest, Jeremy Myerson, will kick off the evening with a short talk sharing his perspective on 'Future Skills: Developing professional skills through thought, culture and diversity.' This will be followed by a group of students talking to Jeremy about their projects, outlining how their ideas respond to the challenges they've explored in different contexts. Jeremy and the students will then reflect on some areas of interest at which point the audience will also be invited to join the conversation.
