Behavioural boozeonomics, with the London Behavioural Economics Network

Join us for a couple – of drinks, and TALKS! – on the Captain’s Bridge, won't you?

The ever stylish Joe Gladstone http://www.joe-gladstone.com | https://twitter.com/JoeJGladstone joins us for a super Ten Min Talk. He’s a Behavioural Scientist and PhD Researcher at the University of Cambridge, and has degrees from Oxford and Cambridge Universities. He’ll give us insights from the coal face of consulting, specifically 'Three key rules: engaging academics in commercial behavioural science projects', which includes examples from his work with banks and other financial service firms to highlight the Do's and Don'ts of how best to engage academics in these projects. I think we’ll all be taking notes: Hurrah! 

Our Canadian compadre Caroline Roux http://indecisionblog.com/author/caroroux/ | https://twitter.com/RouxCaroline is a Marketing PhD from Kellogg School of Management and soon to be Assistant Prof at Concordia's John Molson School of Business, and joins us for the evening on her trip over from the U.S. to bring us a Ten Min Talk full of wit and wisdom on how 'reminders of resource scarcity affect consumers’ cognitions, judgments and behaviours’. Don’t miss it! (scarcity joke, innit… )

Q&A’s for both. Talking from about quarter past seven. 

All aboard!




---------------------

SECOND-Tuesday-of-every-month informal evening gathering for communications, marketing, and research specialists working with behavioural sciences (behavioural economics, decision theory, psychology, neuromarketing, etc) in business or government who're in, or are visiting, London (UK). 

We have a great new venue (or simply, 'a venue', if you’ve not been before) on the Tattershall Castle boat moored infront of London Eye at Embankment. http://www.thetattershallcastle.co.uk/contact-us/

The Bridge Bar is booked for us, with a great view of the Thames, a private bar, and a screen for a speaker. Here's a Google tour goo.gl/c9XBe It’s very close to Embankment Station (District, Circle, Bakerloo, Northern Line), Charing Cross (District, Circle, Bakerloo, Northern Line), Westminster (Jubilee Line), and a short hop over Hungerford bridge (the walkway one) to Waterloo Station.

It's the great networking place for practitioners, academics, and clients to meet and chat about all aspects of cognitive-behavioural communications – and it's in a central London location. 

Feel free to drop by for a bit, or stay for a while. It’s a very friendly bunch, and all are welcome. And do bring buddies you think may enjoy it.

    To BE practitioners - to what extent (if at all) has your knowledge of BE led to new behaviours in the way you manage money?

      Personally, or in business? Personally, I'm more conscious of which heuristics I'm likely to be using when I'm feeling poorer or wealthier and I try to isolate whether my need for something is just "keeping up with the Joneses" or is based on anything I actually need. I don't know much about Mindfulness practices, but I think there's some similarities.

      Business? I try to be aware that many of the agendas brought to a meeting are based on biases, and I try to re-cast problems so they can be viewed in a different way. This is novel thinking for me, and not yet habit. It's hard. :)
