About the session

Modern life is full of chance encounters, changing plans, delayed journeys, human errors, and—yes—even pandemics. But what if we could turn such unpredictability into positive outcomes, personally and professionally? Dr. Christian Busch has spent a decade exploring how, if acted upon, unexpected moments can enhance our worldview, expand our social circles, and create new opportunities.

In this talk, Christian will share how we can use the unexpected as a pathway to more purpose and success. This talk will enable you to:
- Understand the science of serendipity — what it is and how it can be harnessed
- Explore serendipity in the context of COVID-19 and other times of uncertainty
- Learn how serendipity can be used as a tool for professional development, innovation, and impact
- Harness concrete practices on how to cultivate serendipity for enhanced meaning and success
