To solve a complex problem, should we ask a single genius or tap into our networks? It's a question that's answered by Matthew Syed in his book Rebel Ideas: The power of diverse thinking. 

In this episode, Nahdia, Owen, Ross G and Gemma gather to contemplate the book.

We discuss:

  • what rebel ideas are
  • diversity and its benefits (and what we lose when we don't have it)
  • practical ways to harness collective intelligence.
