Serendipity with Tim Longhurst – Chance Encounters that Change Your Life

‘The Three Princes of Serendip’ is one of the earliest detective stories in existence: it tells of how three princes track down a missing camel through luck and good fortune. However, that’s not the whole truth. The three princes in the story do actually utilise what we would now call forensic deduction – almost Sherlockian in its method – and that, ironically, is what gets them into trouble.

We don’t know when it will strike nor the form it will take. But all of us are affected at some point by serendipity. It could be meeting the right person. It could be an opportunity that changes the course of our lives.

It could be falling in love.

Serendipity – with Tim Longhurst, Wednesday, 28 September 2016

Kicking off the Serendipity series of Wednesday evening short talks is futurist, speaker and trend spotter, Tim Longhurst.

As well as leading strategies for governments and Fortune 500 companies, Tim’s passion for making things better has led him to work with activists and dynamic non-government organisations in the support of projects that seek to create a more socially just and sustainable world.

If you have never heard him speak, you will be amazed. And if you have, you know you’ll want to come back and be part of this great event.

Lucy Wire

Conceived in the Valley of Hunters, Lucy dragged all her belongings to Sydney in 2007, wanting to take a hungry bite out of Australia's Big Red Apple... and so began her passionate love affair with Vibewire Youth Inc.

The non-profit youth org saw Lucy take a swing at every curve ball, including Communications, Human Resources, Editing, Design and Business Development. In the last year she has settled down as one of Vibewire's Online Community Managers, loving the close contact she has with Vibewire's supporters on Facebook (link).

Academically, Lucy has dabbled in a variety of fields, including Literature, History, Arts and finally finding her place in a degree of Media and Communications at Sydney University.

When she isn't rolling with the Communications Team at Vibewire, you'll find her pointing her SLR at beautiful landscapes, break-dancing in her living room, and wine-tasting at her birthplace.
