Get Lucky: Putting Planned Serendipity to Work
    “Get Lucky” is a manual for serendipity: what it is, how it works, and how to put it to work for you. As the pace of change accelerates around our businesses and the sheer volume of information explodes, we're under incredible pressure to connect just in time with the people and ideas we need to thrive, even when we don’t know who they are or where they might be. This uncertainty isn’t a problem, however—it brings tremendous opportunities, but only if we embrace one of the most important drivers of success in the modern economy: serendipity. Serendipity isn’t an abstract, magical notion—it can be planned. Though we can’t know exactly when serendipity will strike, we can foster the conditions for it to occur early and often. Luck isn’t lucky—it's learnable. This session will show you how the world’s most admired businesses have applied the 8 essential skills of serendipity.
