Presentations, Workshops & Training

My talks, presentations and workshops for public and private sector clients make behavioural economics (BE) accessible, enjoyable, applicable, useful – and are suitable for non-economists. I show how BE can aid decision-making for service providers and service users, producing better outcomes in fields such as:

  • health: for clinicians, commissioners and health professionals
  • business, from finance to general management
  • regulation and consumer protection
  • the third sector, for managers in charities and non-profits
  • sustainability, including the economics (and more) of carfree life
