Overview

COVID-19 has caused significant disruption to our lives and ways of working. Yet in many respects, it was entirely predictable. This session explores the inherent contradiction in this way of thinking and how each of us categorises different types of risk.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand why COVID-19 was entirely predictable and yet feels unprecedented.

  • Learn the differences between, ’Known Knowns’, ‘Known Unknowns’,’Unknown Unknowns’ and ‘Ignored Unknowns’ when it comes to the risks we face

  • Discover the techniques we use to minimise our fears of the dangers we face.
