Keynote Speaker

The Perils of Perception – why we’re wrong about nearly everything

From immigration and murder rates to how fat we are, people nearly always get the numbers wrong. But why do we have such a shaky grasp of reality, and what can we do about it? This interactive session, drawing on over 100,000 interviews across 40 countries, will outline how a mix of how we think and what we’re told leads us astray.

Professor Bobby Duffy

Bobby Duffy is Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute, at King’s College London. He has worked across most public policy areas in his career of 30 years in policy research and evaluation, including being seconded to the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit.

Bobby sits on several advisory boards including Chairing both the Campaign for Social Science and the CLOSER Advisory Board. His first book, 'The Perils of Perception – Why we’re wrong about nearly everything' draws on a set of global studies on how people misperceive key social realities. His latest book ‘Generations - Does when you’re born shape who you are?’ challenges myths and stereotypes around generational trends, seeking a greater understanding around generational challenges.
