World’s first behavioural insights conference planned: Sydney, June 2014
Organised and sponsored by a variety of private- and public-sector organisations, Behavioural Exchange 2014 will bring practitioners from across the globe together to consider how behavioural innovations are shaping public policy.
Confirmed speakers include Nudge authors Professor Richard Thaler and Professor Cass Sunstein, as well as members of the Harvard University Behavioural Insights Group and David Halpern, who is head of the UK’s Behavioural Insights Team.
Other speakers, such as Thia Jang Pin from Singapore’s Ministry of Finance and Donald Low from Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, will ensure a truly global perspective on the subject matter.
The event, which is being held at a venue overlooking Sydney Harbour, provides a chance to highlight practical examples of the ways behavioural insights are being used by governments around the world to enhance their interactions with citizens. Further details are available from the conference website.
