Expert on trust and technology Rachel Botsman explains how innovative digital technologies are changing the way we build, manage, lose and repair trust.

Botsman says that while we are losing trust in institutions of government and business, we are prepared to travel in cars with total strangers, exchange digital currencies or trust a bot. She describes this as ‘distributed trust’ and explains how we need to understand its mechanics if we are to benefit from this radical change.

Botsman is an award-winning speaker and a lecturer at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School. She writes for The New York Times, Harvard Business Review, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian and Wired. Here she is introduced by Professor Peter Tufano, Peter Moores Dean and professor of finance at Said Business School.

Said Business School is offering refreshments to audience members prior to this event.
