Behavioural Economics - Session ONE

AQR Brings you... BEHAVIOURAL ECONOMICS Two evening sessions exploring the impact of Behavioural Economics from a research perspective and from the client's perspective


Session ONE - 25th January 6.00pm to 9.30pm
AQR: Getting to grips with Behavioural Economics — from a researcher’s perspective

This session will give you an insight into theory and techniques that you can use to enrich your own research design and analysis. Join us on 25 January to hear papers and discussion with 3 of our leading proponents of using Behavioural Economics in research.

3 exciting papers

  • ‘Getting the most bang for your bias’: an exploration of under-leveraged biases and how to take BE to the next level (Caroline Hayter, Acacia Avenue)
  • 'The three heuristic emperors of brand growth’: an exploration of emotion and its influence on behaviour (Seamus O’Farrell, Brand Salience)
  • 'BE-volution 3.0': BE research is now growing at an exponential rate and continues to deliver rich new insights into human behaviour. We’re on the next stage of our journey into behavioural enlightenment — hold onto your seats! (Crawford Hollingworth, The Behavioural Architects)

Looking forward to papers, discussion, drinks and networking
