Patrick Barwise - The War Against The BBC
Has the BBC become too big, losing sight of its original purpose, to inform, educate and entertain, paying its execs and talent too much for the general public to stomach, losing younger viewers and listeners to new platforms and social media?

Kathryn Jacob and Sue Unerman - The Key to Belonging at Work
We've all made mistakes with our behaviour work. Maybe you haven't called out bullying in the past or perhaps you were guilty of bias for, or against someone?

George Zarkadakis - Re-Inventing Democracy in the Age of Intelligent Machines
Around the world, liberal democracies are in crisis. Citizens are losing faith in their government; right-wing nationalist movements frame the political debate. At the same time, economic inequality is increasing dramatically; digital technologies have created a new class of super-rich entrepreneurs. Automation threatens to transform the free economy into a zero-sum game in which capital wins and labour loses. But is this digital dystopia inevitable? Is their light at the end of the current tunnel?
Thomas Erikson - How to Stop Being Exploited by Psychopaths
Richard Kilgarriff shares OMI with behavioural expert Thomas Erikson on the dark, manipulative characters whose only motive in life is to get what they want.
Approximately 160 million psychopaths roam the earth looking for victims. Some run companies and countries, wielding enormous power without empathy or compassion. You might have one in your life right now. If so, run very quickly in the opposite direction, says Thomas, for the psychopath will not be shamed or reasoned into submission.
