Description

Nudgestock is back!

Your one day festival of behavioural science returns for 2018.

For one day in June, join us on a clifftop pavilion on the South Coast of England as we bring together a wonderfully eclectic mix of thought leading talks and behaviour change case studies. All interspersed with a suitable mix of drinks, mingling, ice cream stalls and revelry.

Hosted by Rory Sutherland, you can expect some of the leading thinkers and practitioners in behavioural science, marketing, advertising and more. You’ll be joined by business people, government, academics and members of the public all with a shared interest in behavioural economics, psychology, game theory and evolutionary biology.

Previous speakers include Meik Wiking, Richard Thaler, Nassim Taleb, Dave Trott and Tim Harford. It was a sell out last year and in its sixth year you can expect another day packed with some brilliant talent.

Apart from our curiosity, we are united in our belief of the potential for diverse disciplines to not only significantly improve peoples’ quality of life, but also to give businesses new tools with which to solve some of the biggest challenges.

Unseen opportunities await.

What will I hear?

  • Stimulating insight from cutting-edge behavioural research

  • Turning theory into action: leading practitioners in the field will share their experience of nudging in the real world

  • The latest case studies from around the globe. We’ll explain the science, the application and (most importantly) the results they have achieved.


Who's Speaking?

Nicholas A. Christakis is an American sociolgist and physician best known for his research on social networks and on the socioeconomic and biosocial determinants of behavior, health, and longevity. Nicholas' research into the structure and function of social networks investigates how they operate to influence thoughts, feelings, and behaviours, as well as how we can use them for good (he's also been named one of the most influential people in the world!). He directs the Human Nature Lab at Yale, and is the Co-Director of the Yale Institute for Network Science.


Michael Pawlyn is the founder of Exploration Architecture, a design, innovation and strategy company focussed on using biomimicry in order to design high-performance buildings and solutions for the circular economy.

Caroline Webb is a British author and business consultant. Her bestselling book, How to Have a Good Day, argues that insights from behavioural economics, psychology and neuroscience can - and should - be used to improve our working lives.

Professor Ruth Morgan (MA (Oxon), D.Phil) is Professor of Crime and Forensic Science at UCL. She is the Founder and Director of the UCL Centre for the Forensic Sciences which she set up in 2010 as the first dedicated interdisciplinary research centre to address the big challenges of interpreting forensic science evidence. Ruth is one of the most prolific researchers in forensic science, with her group focussing on how we interpret what forensic science evidence means, and how we understand decision-making under uncertainty. She regularly presents her research at international conferences and her research has been featured in popular TV crime dramas.
