Got plans for Friday, August 16?

Come see world-renowned behavioural economist Dan Ariely talk in an intimate setting with limited seats at BEworks’ first meet-up for 2019.

Dan’s ground-breaking experimental research has shed light on why people make irrational decisions that aren’t in their best interest, making him one of the most prominent leaders in the field of behavioural economics.

An interdisciplinary science blending psychology, economics and neuroscience, behavioural economics recognizes that due to constraints in time, energy and resources, humans resort to mental shortcuts which often result in irrational decisions.

A deeply inspiring figure, Dan ended on this path by transforming a traumatic teenage experience with severe burns into curiosity about how humans tolerate pain and about other aspects of human behaviour.
He’s the author of several New York Times best-selling books, including Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty.

Dan is a founding partner at BEworks and a James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioural Economics at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

To top it off, he’s an engaging speaker with a quirky sense of humour.

Dan’s hour-long talk will conclude with a Q&A session, so if you’ve always wanted to ask him a question in person, this could be your chance.

After the talk, you’ll have the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and the rockstar BEworks team.

Beverages and yummy snacks (healthy and vegan-friendly!) will be provided.

Seats are limited; get your ticket now!

If you still hesitate, consider this: scientific research shows that spending money on experiences is more satisfying than spending on material things.

Registration: 4:30pm-5pm

Dan Ariely talks followed by Q & A: 5pm-6pm

Networking with BEworks team: 6pm-7pm
