Use cutting-edge behavioural science to realise your dreams and ambitions with the guidance of LSE’s Professor Grace Lordan.

What are you doing today to make your dream future come true?

We all have big ambitions for the future but those dreams only become reality if we do something towards them regularly. To achieve audacious goals, we need to take action and make small changes every day. We need to think big and act small.

Whether you fantasise about changing industry, landing that big promotion, writing a screenplay or setting up your own company, this livestream event with LSE behavioural scientist Grace Lordan will help you create a clear pathway to the future you want.

Using cutting-edge behavioural science insights, Professor Lordan will offer immediate actionable solutions and tips that will help you get a tiny bit closer to your dream career, every day. Like how to:

· Overcome a fear of failure and throw yourself at opportunity
· Craft the optimum environment for work and give yourself ample time for tasks
· Rewrite self-narratives and tackle imposter syndrome
· Watch out for other people’s biases and stop them from holding you back
