Speaker: Matt Finch

Series: CityLIS After Hours

Due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to cancel this event. We are looking into the possibility of re-arranging the talk for the spring term. Apologies for the inconvenience


How do we create and maintain value in a networked world?

What happens to truth and trust in an age of competing authorities and digital disinformation?

Who will draw the new boundaries between journalism, business, and the information professions - and how?

This participatory session with guest presenter Dr Matt Finch will bring together City's business, journalism, and information science students to explore the future of information: how we generate and acquire it, how we manage it, and how we use it to make the best possible decisions in turbulent times.

From "fake news", long-term organisational change, and business intelligence to the biggest political debates of our day, this session will challenge assumptions, encourage fresh thinking, and build connections among students in three of the most important fields of the coming era.

Students will try their hands at generating possible future scenarios and find connections between information science, journalism, and business which will strengthen their own learning and future careers.

Matt Finch is a consultant to sectors including health, higher education, local government, and the media, and a facilitator on the Scenarios Programme at Oxford University's Saïd Business School. He has extensive experience helping organisations to innovate and explore future challenges. Find out more at his site www.mechanicaldolphin.com
