Behavioural Economics

Join us for a Neurocomms Masterclass on the 16th of November on how to deliver persuasive communications that shape behaviours and shift perceptions – with Behavioural Economics.

Who do you need to persuade and influence? Are you asking a lot of your stakeholders or just a little? Are you preparing a campaign that will seek new action or simply improve awareness?

Knowing how the brain works allows communicators to know how to guide thoughts, emotional responses and take certain actions. And, knowing yourself and knowing others makes your communication more empathetic, sharper and more compelling.

The agenda will include:

The Six Principles of Persuasion: an effective technique designed by Robert Cialdini that drives any new behaviour. These include: Reciprocity, Social Proof, Consistency, Liking, Authority and Scarcity

Nudge theory: an aspect of behavioural economics, nudge theory looks at where our behaviour can be nudged in a specific direction. Often used in politics, we’ll look at the UK Governments’ Nudge Unit, EAST framework – Easy, Attractive, Social, Timely

Biases that affect us: We are all biased and we use our biases every day, often unconsciously, to make decisions. We’ll look at the different forms of biases – confirmation bias, present bias, optimism bias, in-group/out-group bias and others – while simultaneously how to adopt behavioural economics or decision science to overcome these biases

By the end of this Neurocomms Masterclass, you will know how to use the right language and tonality for persuasion and how to use behavioural economics techniques to engage in persuasive communication in a complex world.
