How To Get People To Do Stuff

Whether you want your client to approve your design, your manager to fund your project, or your target audience to press the “Buy” button at your website, you spend a large part of each day trying to get people to do stuff. What if you understood the science behind how to get people to do stuff?


There are 7 basic drivers of human motivation. And if you understand what motivates people you’ll be better able to figure out how to get people to do stuff. That’s the premise of Dr. Susan Weinschenk’s new book. In this talk you will learn what the 7 drivers of motivation are, and how to use them.

Dr. Weinschenk will have her books for sale at the event, and will be available for book signings before and after the talk.

Susan Weinschenk has a Ph.D. in Psychology and over 30 years of experience as a behavioral psychologist.

Clients come to Dr. Weinschenk to get insight on how to communicate and persuade, whether in a presentation, a website, or any other platform where they need to get their target audience to take action.

Dr. Weinschenk is the author of several books, including How To Get People To Do Stuff, 100 Things Every Presenter Needs To Know About People, 100 Things Every Designer Needs To Know About People, and Neuro Web Design: What makes them click?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
