In this embracing conflict keynote from executive businesswoman Margaret Heffernan, she discusses the importance of challenging conventional wisdom and how to effectively create an environment that fosters this.

Some of the most important discoveries in science and medicine emerged as a result of research teams challenging each other's findings. It is crucial to resist humans' neurological drive to seek out people similar to themselves. Working alongside individuals who think and behave differently can play a huge role in leading to new discoveries being made.

Heffernan's embracing conflict keynote encourages the audience to dare to disagree with coworkers. Complacency in any field can trump progress and act as a serious roadblock to individuals discovering new , life-changing things.
