Tom King - The Generous Society

A talk and discussion led by Tom King author of The Generous Society.

Tom worked with former Cambridge Lib Dem MPs Julian Huppert and Professor David Howarth  and now works in political risk strategy.

Come and join in the discussion for a positive vision of our future society.



The generous society can be our future.

Generosity is a beautiful quality. It is one we all wish to experience from others, especially those with power over us. It is also one we all wish others to experience from us. Perhaps more precisely still, it is one we all wish we had the power to use for those we care about.

Finally and fundamentally, we all wish we could be more generous to ourselves: questioning our decisions less, fearing missed opportunity less often, and feeling grateful for the successes of others, rather than envying them. In a liberal society, more people would have these powers, and we would all be vastly richer for it.

We need not carry on wandering around in the dark, kept from this future. We have the knowledge and the means to achieve it. We need only convince those around us that this vision exists and is achievable.

We hope you will join us in making this vision a reality.


*****PLEASE NOTE*****

I have just been made aware that there are 2 steps to the room we are in.  The venue do not have a ramp, if you require a wheelchair ramp for access then let me know before the event (email [email protected]) and I'll try and source one!  I am also happy to carry one in from the carpark if you have one for the car. I shall endeavour to have a zoom link option to make sure everyone can access.  Do let me know if you have suggestions for fully accessible venues for future events too. Thanks
