  3. Folk Wisdom from a Pure Mathematician

    If applied maths is the useful part of maths, does that make pure maths useless? Not according to mathematician turned educator and writer, Junaid Mubeen. He is convinced that even the more abstract areas of maths can serve as powerful mental models.


    In this talk he delves into his toolkit of pure maths concepts, showing, for instance, how the notion of dimensionality has shaped his understanding of politics, what the axiom of choice reveals about the nature of truth, and why the mean value theorem is a more effective model for goal-setting than the ones found in productivity books. Regardless of your grounding in pure maths, Junaid will leave you with a newfound appreciation for its 'unreasonable effectiveness' in making sense of the world.

  13. Why We Shouldn’t Take Food For Granted

    The Johnson government won a landslide majority in the 2019 election with many promises made. In this presentation, Minette will chart the journey of these promises from the 2019 manifesto against what actually happened. Including how and why the UK capitulated to Australia/NZ; the ill-fated UK/US free trade agreement between Johnson and Trump and the impact of COVID 19; plus, the coalition that stopped hormone treated beef and chlorine washed chicken coming into the UK market.

     

    Minette will provide a fascinating insight into why agriculture is always the first chapter to be discussed and the last chapter to be agreed…..concluding with what this means for the future of trade and our service-based economy.

    Speaker

    Minette Batters, National Farmers Union of England and Wales
