Event Details

History’s big decisions may have changed the world but how did leaders reach them? What clever shortcuts did they use, and how can we apply their thinking today? Marcus du Sautoy, presenter of the BBC’s Story of Maths and Oxford Professor for the Public Understanding of Science is joined by Janina Ramirez to explore some of history’s most intriguing decisions – from the building of the cities around the Euphrates 5,000 years ago to Napoleon’s 1812 March on Moscow – how they were made, what they led to, the shortcuts the decision-makers used and what we can learnt from them.
