Today's lunch guest: Lucy Hawking science speaker
It was wonderful to catch up with Lucy Hawking today, one of our favourite speakers. Alongside sharing stories of travelling to Soviet Russia with her father, Stephen Hawking, she was also able to fill us in on her plans for the new year.
Lucy is currently developing a new presentation which will disaggregate scientific ‘breakthroughs’ and disruptive technologies, and explain to informed but non-scientific audiences what is likely to happen and where, and by when. Her focus is on AI, neuroscience and genetics, areas which show the most potential for progress in the coming decades. On top of this, Lucy is also working on material that will examine some of the most important questions on space travel this century; where are we going, what are we doing in space and where will it lead us?

Lucy is also the best selling author and the original creator of the George Greenby books, a series of adventure stories which aim to explain complex science to a young audience through dramatic storytelling. Last year her book tour took her all over the world including the far reaches of Bhutan to promote the series. If you would like to buy any of her brilliant books, CLICK HERE.
