What does it take to overcome probability and gain competitive advantage? How do you identify the pivot points and how necessary is it to be flexible? Where should the balance be between correcting the course and sticking to the plan and how does this help you to beat the odds? 

Monica Grady CBE, Professor of Planetary and Space Sciences at the Open University, was involved in the European Space Agency's Rosetta space probe project. She'll be talking about how the team overcame the odds to successfully land Philae (Rosetta's lander module) on a comet in 2014. Monica will be joined by Tim Jones, CEO of the Allia Group and Chairman of the quoted flavour and fragrance supplier Treatt Plc.

Tuesday 8 November 6-9pm at the Department of Engineering.
