We’re big fans of combining psych and business so we’ve collaborated a list of upcoming Psych events that quite frankly you’d be pretty crazy to miss.
Building Habit-Forming Products: a Discussion with Nir Eyal
Date: 28th April 2014
Venue: 62 Shoreditch High Street, London E1 6JJ
What are the secrets of creating products customers use everyday? How does a company create a persuasive technology? What are the necessary components of a habit-forming product? What is the “hook model” and how can it be used to create persuasive technology? When is it morally appropriate to manipulate users?
This event is for product designers, executives, and marketers: anyone whose product or company would benefit from repeat customer engagement.

Venue: Emmanuel Centre, 9-23 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 3DW
We often think we are rational, that we know how to make decisions, that we are in control. But are we? In this talk by Dan Ariely, a leading Professor of Psychology and Behavioural Economics, whose talks on TED have been watched over 4.8million times, we will discover some of the ways we are out of control and influenced by forces we don’t always fully understand.
This is then followed by an interview with Chief Executive of the RSA Matthew Taylor.

Vice Chairman of Ogilvy & Mather Rory Sutherland will be hosting a seminar to explain why government and business has shamefully neglected human psychology in its decision-making and why he believes the next revolution will be not so much technological as psychological.
