Join us at Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) for the book launch of "Purposeful Curiosity" by Professor Costas Andriopoulos
In an age of constant distractions (with the proliferation of smartphones, the never-ending scroll and the relentless stream of notifications), PURPOSEFUL CURIOSITY cuts through the ‘noise' of information overload and uses the productive power of curiosity to provide focus and meaning in our lives.
Curiosity—the urge to know, to see, or to experience—is what motivates information-seeking behaviour. This powerful drive has long been associated with positive emotions, lower levels of anxiety, strengthened relationships, achievement, and longevity.
Dr Costas Andriopoulos, Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (City, University of London), spent five years interviewing the most curious minds working today, focused on people who have harnessed their inquisitive minds and innovative thinking to achieve success across a variety of fields. He has talked to Formula One engineers, opera singers, scientists working to grow food on Mars, artists, polar and space explorers, investors, Michelin- starred chefs and storm chasers. Andriopoulos weaves together gripping insights and advice from these interviews with cutting-edge research from psychology, neuroscience, management, history, sociology and anthropology to illuminate the purposefully curious approach. He demonstrates how purposeful curiosity can challenge the status quo and shows how we can all benefit from his new way of thinking.
