The Future is up for grabs

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


JHB Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


Humanity is at the beginning of a revolution that will change the way you think about your family, your work and yourself and bring radical change for every institution and every nation, as well as changing the definition of wealth.
It will challenge the definition of what it means to be human and once it’s over, society will be completely re-organised and our sense of ourselves and our place in the universe altered. You may not know it but you’ve already seen the trailer.
In this talk Mark shows us the main feature, that’s coming sooner than we realise.
