Who Can You Trust? Rachel Botsman to speak in member event

 

If you can't trust those in charge, who can you trust? 

From government to business, banks to media, trust in institutions is at an all-time low. But this isn't the age of distrust -- far from it. In her revolutionary book, world-renowned trust expert, Rachel Botsman, reveals that we are at the tipping point of one of the biggest social transformations in human history - with fundamental consequences for everyone. A new world order is emerging: we might have lost faith in institutions and leaders, but millions of people rent their home to total strangers, exchange digital currencies, or find themselves trusting a bot. This is the age of "distributed trust", a paradigm shift driven by innovative technologies that are rewriting the rules of an all-too-human relationship.

If we are to benefit from this radical shift, we must understand the mechanics of how trust is built, managed, lost and repaired in the digital age. In the first book to explain this new world, Botsman provides a detailed map of this uncharted landscape - and explores what's next for humanity.

 

Rachel Botsman, global trust expert will be speaking at the Sir Harold Evans room at the IMPRESS offices on 19 September. Limited space is available for this unique opportunity to meet Rachel on her visit to the UK.

Priority booking is reserved for IMPRESS members. If you would like to register your interest in attending what promises to be a fascinating event, please email our Communications Executive, Jazz Berry, on jazz@impress.press.
