Examining behaviour insights and current practice around behaviour change in sport, culture and community activities.
We are delighted with the success of this conference, which was aimed at strategic leads from sport, culture and community sectors and associated activity providers. Held on Friday 2nd December 2016 at The Fielder Conference Centre in Hatfield, feedback from the 120 delegates was extremely positive.
The focus of the conference was on how to increase the impact of the work of organisations by developing their understanding of human behaviour. The conference included sessions by experts in the field of psychology and behavioural insights, giving delegates an unmissable opportunity to consider how to engage with the public, improve the uptake of services, and increase the impact of their work.
