Be a catalyst for change

Listen to talks from world-class speakers and learn what it takes to start a chain reaction that has positive impact.

Chain Reactions is a new joint initiative between Imperial Enterprise Lab, Imperial College Business School, and global media company CNBC.

Comprising four events, beginning on Monday 1 November and running through to Monday 14 February 2022, the series will feature interviews between CNBC’s broadcaster Tania Bryer and inspirational role models, across a diverse range of sectors, backgrounds and activities – from deep science to social justice to policy and ventures – each of whom have triggered a “chain reaction” of making the world a better place for us all.

Each event will encourage participants to reflect on their own work and their future impact by posing the question: In 20 years from now, what do you want your legacy to be?
