Albert Einstein, one of the most famous scientists of all time, said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” There are so many amazing and exciting careers out there for everyone, particularly in science and technology.  BT has brought together a host of wonderful speakers to share their inspirational ideas and advice on how they tapped into their potential.
