We were joined by three experts who brought scientific and mathematical discovery to life in a way that was genuinely inspiring and relevant for any organisation interested in innovation.

After training to be a doctor, Michael Mosley moved into TV to work on Troubleshooter. He has since produced and presented a raft of science programmes. 2012 projects include a look at today’s medical frontiers and why we really don’t need much exercise – along with his regular slot on The One Show. Michael’s presentation explored the economics and the history of innovation.

Kevin Fong is an astrophysicist and anaesthetist. After training with NASA he now works with the UK Science, Technology and Facilities Council, as well as running an intensive care unit and teaching ‘extreme environment physiology.’ He also makes films for BBC’s Horizon strand. Kevin considered lessons from space, and how technology and exploration both solves and creates problems.

In an earlier life Alex Bellos was The Guardian’s man in South America and Pele’s ghost-writer. He’s now often hailed as the person who reclaimed maths from the geeks. In his presentation, as in his book Alex’s Adventures in Numberland, he explained how maths underpins everything we do – and how random behaviour can be strangely predictable.
