Uncertainty is inevitable. But how you respond is up to you.

In 90 minutes and then throughout the day, Sam will immerse you in the world of the Uncertainty Experts and facilitate you through the interactive process of response and reflection.

This immersive, interactive live documentary will look at how uncertainty connects all our problems and worries… And how it inspires our greatest creativity and resilience.

Speaking to scientists, researchers, and our own Uncertainty Experts who overcame life’s most significant challenges to become business leaders, CEOs and campaigners, we look at how we can train the brain to better respond to uncertainty.

The result is a live documentary that will transform your relationship with uncertainty forever.
