Dr Matthew Smith leads us on a journey through a range of psychological research that suggests that ‘luck’ may not be the uncontrollable beast it first appears! By rethinking what luck is, is it possible to tame it… and even learn to be lucky?

In this salon, he returns to the topic of his PhD which examined people’s perceptions of luck and why people consider themselves to be lucky or unlucky.
