Safi Bahcall

The Economic Club of Memphis is pleased to present Safi Bahcall on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at the Butcher Shop at the Agricenter. A reception begins at 6 pm with dinner seating at 6:45 pm.  In his instant Wall Street Journal bestselling book Loonshots, Safi Bahcall reveals a surprising new way of thinking about innovation and group dynamics, challenging everything we thought we knew about radical breakthroughs. In talks based on his book—which Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman calls “Not to be missed by anyone who wants to understand how ideas change the world”—Bahcall shows how we can stoke innovation, create better leaders, and support “loonshots”: the imperfect but ingenious ideas that have the potential to change the world.
