Embracing an Uncertain World: A Thoroughly Autistic Perspective (Piers Roberts)
Time & Location
About the Event
Join me for this talk when I shall discuss ways I think about uncertainty that I hope you will find inspiring and useful.
The only certainty is uncertainty and this can prove unsettling, particularly in these times of COVID. And yet many of the best things in life come from exploring things we don’t fully comprehend, the uncertain, non-linear space around us. We could all do with a better understanding of its nature and to explore ways we may accommodate it better rather than looking to suppress and eradicate uncertainty in the search for ‘order'.
Confusion and uncertainty have been constant companions in my life, so when I was diagnosed autistic aged 50, some of the reasons for my struggles began to make sense. I was always an outsider, unable to negotiate life’s ups and downs as most people seemed able, leaving me isolated but with room to think about uncertainty in different ways.
Piers Roberts is a non-linear thinker, creative entrepreneur and neurodiversity champion. The founder of several major international festivals of design, architecture and illustration, Piers has spent 20 years championing creatives and their businesses; supporting extraordinary people who think, feel and see different.
Piers draws on his lived experience as a late diagnosed autistic adult to advise organisations on how they may gain from engaging constructively with neurodiversity.
He recently established Riskkit (www.riskkit.com) to explore ideas around how we navigate uncertainty in our complex world, supported by insights gained from supporting creative entrepreneurs.
