Research is giving us increasing insights into what makes some messages cut through and catch on, while others just bounce off, and what makes some designs work, while others fail to engage.

Following the success of our sell-out behaviour change conference in 2016, we’ll be diving into comms theory and psychology to help you refine and improve your communications projects.

Find out how organisations are applying learning from behavioural science to design communications and products that connect, and drive real-world action and change.

On the agenda:

  • Emotion - how emotion can drive action
  • Audience insight – understand what makes your targets tick
  • Copy that clicks – applying behavioural nudges to your content
  • Changing attitudes, changing behaviour – how do they connect?
  • Psychology of sharing – how to make your content shareable
  • Reframing – getting people to see an issue differently
  • Engaging values to drive social action
  • Persuasion design – seamless experiences that draw people in
  • Understanding motivations – why do people behave the way they do?

Refreshments and snacks will be provided during the breaks and at lunch you'll have a choice of three hot meals (one meat and two vegetarian options) plus a salad bar and desserts.

Calling all potential speakers
