Workshops

Whether you're looking for an introduction to behavioural economics for your team or deep learning into a specific area of application, we have ready-made and custom-built workshops for a variety of corporate/institutional challenges.

All workshops are highly interactive, with a focus on collaborative learning instead of one-sided lectures. Our method of teaching focuses on helping participants discover the insights on their own as they move through the sessions, and learn through our large repository of real-life cases and examples. 

Each workshop also includes innovative learning methods using in-class experiments, podcasts, videos and hands-on group activities.

Behavioural Economics for Marketing

Behavioural economics tells us about the limitations in the human mind, how our preferences are unstable, the impact of framing and presentation of choices, and the influence of many non-monetary considerations on our purchase decisions. 

 

Consumers are not always rational, and by ignoring the 'predictable' psychological and behavioural influences on their choices, we render our marketing efforts often ineffective.
