About the #WebPolicyTalk: The Serendipity Mindset: The Art & Science of Creating Good Luck, in Cities and Beyond

Modern life is full of chance encounters, changing plans, delayed journeys, human errors, and—yes—even pandemics. But what if we could turn such unpredictability into positive outcomes? Dr. Christian Busch has spent a decade exploring how, if acted upon, unexpected moments can enhance our worldview, expand our social circles, and create new opportunities for innovation and impact. In this talk, Christian will share how we can use uncertainty as a pathway to more purpose and success, for companies and individuals alike. This talk will enable you to:

  • Understand the science of serendipity — what it is and how it can be harnessed
  • Explore serendipity in the context of COVID-19 and other times of uncertainty
  • Learn how serendipity can be used as a tool for innovation and impact in cities and beyond
  • Harness concrete practices on how to cultivate serendipity for enhanced meaning and success
