If you’re tired of the elitism of TEDTalks and think that knowledge and discussion should be available to all, then come and witness the pop-up, energy-filled Lost Lectures on August 29/30 at a secret London location. With a theme of Lost at Sea, there will be watery talks from a CERN scientist, the founder of the Homeless World Cup, a real life adventurer and much more besides. These 12 minute lectures each promise to be informative, thought-provoking and inspiring – but if you’re bored by one speaker, 12 mins isn’t very long to suffer through. Plus we hear there will be some fun nautical-themed seating too. Get your thinking cap on and book your tickets now. Carly-Ann Clements
