Event details

Are you being nudged? In other words, how are you being influenced by hidden persuaders in advertising, the media or in daily conversation? And how would you know if you are?

Behavioural scientists Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein identified nine factors that influence people’s behaviour, which the Institute for Government then used to create the MINDSPACE concept to support public policy development.

In this interactive webinar, Geoff Ashton will draw on his experience as former Head of Employer Insight at a UK Government department and 10 years of working as a professional coach. He will summarise the nine influencers and lead a discussion on how these might be showing up in our daily conversations. 

You will come away with deeper - and perhaps surprising - insights into how these ideas affect you in your daily and working lives, and how you might use them yourself in an ethical way.

This event will take place live on Zoom Webinar. You will receive a link to join a couple of days before the event and a reminder an hour before. During the event, you can ask questions via a Q&A function, but audience cameras and microphones will remain muted throughout.
