Dr Hossein Rezai inspired us by his keynote speech on Future of Excellence, where brought us across the spectrum from ignorance to genius. He showed us how excellence sits ambiguously at the crossroads between competence and curiosity, where existing knowledge perpetually meets the desire for more. A dynamic duality exists here between the comfort of knowing and the anxiety of not knowing.

JOURNEY TOWARDS EXCELLENCE

Additionally, Dr Rezai reminded us how our built environment has been developed at a rapid pace and in contrast to the natural environment and illustrated the near destruction of terrestrial biodiversity down to 30% of what existed in 1970’s. He stressed the need of urgently bending the degenerative curve of biodiversity loss and exploring new innovative paths of regenerative future.
