Rory Sutherland 

“If you base your business success on technological gizmo then you have something that will give you a competitive advantage for 18 months to two years. On the other hand, if your brand rests on a solid understand of unchanging psychological truths, then what you have is a completely enduring competitive advantage.”

At Nudgestock, c-suite marketeers learn how to think like a behavioral scientist, where counter-intuitive ideas and real-world case studies are discussed, debated, and celebrated by the planet’s boldest thinkers. The day will tackle how rethinking sustainability and diversity can promote balance, how our age of misinformation and polarization is warping society, and how behavioral science can track the changing nature of consumerism.
