We are delighted to announce special guest Matthew Hancock MP, Minister for the Cabinet Office & Paymaster General, will be opening BX2015, the behavioural science conference taking place in London on the 2nd and 3rd September 2015.
With over 70 speakers confirmed, the focus of BX2015 will be to learn from global best practice examples at the plenary sessions and the 18 policy-themed parallel sessions. Led by the hosts; columnist and broadcaster Tim Harford, and the BBC’s Mark Easton, this really is the behavioural science event not to be missed.
Some examples of the confirmed sessions:
Words that matter
Day 1 programme will include the plenary session ‘Words that matter’ with Steven Pinker and Robert Cialdini. Communication, language and style matter in all areas of life. This session brings together two of the most highly acclaimed figures in the science of communication and influence; to talk about the science of style and persuasion.
You are the Doctor
In one of the 18 parallel sessions will become the doctor! It’s time to turn things upside down. No more long talks, but a session that allows you to see a hospital through a doctors eyes and get a chance to tackle the problems they face. Under the guidance of healthcare professionals, the audience will be asked to actively participate in making decisions and finding solutions. Using video materials filmed in Imperial College’s simulation centre, you will see how making decisions can be a matter of life or death – and how we can ensure they are made better.
