Community Speaker Series presents David Epstein on 11/17

David Epstein

Range: Why Generalists Triumph in a Specialized World

  • Tuesday, November 17, 2020
  • 7:00pm – 8:15pm
  • Zoom Webinar

New York Times best-selling author and science writer David Epstein has made it his mission to uncover the keys to achieving high performance in any domain, and to debunk popular myths along the way.

Epstein shows that at every stage of life, from the development of children in math, music, and sports, to students fresh out of college trying to find their way, to mid career professionals in need of change, to retirees looking for a new vocation—generalists triumph as the world around them becomes increasingly specialized.

The presentation is free and open to all. Registration is required as each viewer receives a unique link. This event will be recorded and will be available ONLY to those who register for the event.  If you are unable to attend the live-stream, but will want to view the recording, please register. Register here.
