Title: Why are Weak Interactions so Strong? Seeking New Symmetries at the LHC.

Abstract: The LHC is probing the scale of weak interactions. In doing so it may shed light on a one of the central puzzles in particle physics - why is the weak force so strong compared to gravity? I will review the problem as well as some of the solutions that the LHC can discover. A key ingredient in some of the recent proposals, dubbed `neutral naturalness’, is the discovery of new forces of nature and new symmetries.
