Civilization is founded on engineering innovation. All progress stems from the human urge to make things and to shape the world around us, resulting in greater freedom, health and wealth for all.

Engineer, businessman, and former CEO of BP Lord Browne will give an impassioned defense of progress and innovation and an argument for social responsibility. Browne will show why engineering is the basis for all progress and its consequences - both good and bad - and remind us the same spark that triggers each innovation can be used to counter its negative consequence and can keep us moving towards a brighter future. These ideas are the basis of his new book Make, Think, Imagine: Engineering the Future of Civilization. A signed copy is included with the lecture ticket.

A Q&A with the audience will follow Lord Browne's remarks.
