What makes someone lucky? Can luck be controlled, is it random, or is it based on something else? Former professional poker player Liv Boeree asks if it’s better to be lucky or good in her talk ‘3 lessons on decision-making from a poker champion’, Tina Seelig explains how to seize opportunities in ‘The little risks you can take to increase your luck’, theatre director Paul Bourne explores the dynamics and role of luck and serendipity in ‘How to be lucky’ and fitness instructor Ahanti Johnson suggests that can we can influence our destiny through ‘The power of visualization’.

TEDx Hackney Libraries is a wonderful opportunity for local residents to get together to listen to experts talk about subjects that matter to us all. These events aren’t just about listening; the open discussion at each session encourages conversation about how these topics affect our everyday lives, inspire us to see things from a different perspective and could even spark change!
TEDx Hackney Council Libraries are inclusive events, ensuring that everyone has a voice, as we believe that personal stories and experiences are invaluable. We can learn from experts, but most of all we can learn from each other.
