Facing the future: are we too risk-averse?

In an era characterised by precaution and uncertainty, this series of evening seminars examines what underlies today’s aversion to risk, and whether contemporary fears are legitimate. Organised by the online publication spiked and Hill & Knowlton, the seminars examine the difference between genuine and exaggerated risks, in areas ranging from business and technology to food and finance.
