Event description

Description

Kent Business School, in partnership with Turner Contemporary, invites you to a Business Soundbites event, titled The Curiosity Cost which takes place on Wednesday 2 May from 17.00 onwards at Turner Contemporary in Margate.

Curiosity is the catalyst for change. In the art world this is an accepted paradigm. Through its We Are Curious education activities, Turner Contemporary encourages open-ended thinking and wondering questions through the concept of philosophical enquiry. The gallery also actively seeks the creative input from outsiders: its current exhibition Journeys With The Waste Land is an audience-led exhibition. Turner Contemporary asked a group of volunteers to collaboratively curate an exhibition, connecting art, poetry and life experiences around T.S. Elliot's poem The Waste Land.

Businesses who wish to stay ahead of the game similarly need to encourage curiosity on the work floor and embrace a more meritocratic business model where employees actively engage in the direction of the company. But what structures, attitudes and behaviours prevent businesses from doing exactly that? How can we learn to recognise these and, more importantly, change them?

On Wednesday 2 May, we will explore the concept of The Curiosity Cost through two presentations by KBS lecturer (TBC) and guest speaker Adam Papaphilipopoulos from business consultancy Reluctantly Brave, followed by an interactive workshop using the gallery space.

Learn to build a curious workforce and run a better business!
