Our special guest speaker – our 2021 joint award winner – is David Spiegelhalter who holds the Winton Professorship of the Public Understanding of Risk, at the University of Cambridge, England. His controversial theme: “Trustworthy communication of risk and evidence: the battle against naughty numbers in the news.”

The live (in-person) event is open to all, including members of the public, is free to attend but entry is strictly ticket-only. Because numbers are limited to 80 guests, please apply for tickets via our Eventbrite page. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
