Katy Milkman, Economist, Bestselling Author & Wharton Professor

Changing Behavior - Guiding Employee and Customer Choices for Good

Employee and customer choices are heavily dependent on context. Katy Milkman, an expert in the ways we consider options and make decisions, understands this from her extensive research studying these populations as a behavioral economist. ‘Choice architecture,’ or simply the way in which a choice is presented (on screens and in person) can thus be an extremely valuable tool for improving employee outcomes and consumer choices.

In this informative keynote, Milkman teaches audiences how to make use of the malleability in how choices are made to influence behavior for the better, providing insights about how to encourage improved decisions—online, at work, and at home. Covering the basics of wise choice architecture, nudges that have been proven to increase the likelihood of optimal decisions, and actionable takeaways tailored for your business or organization, Milkman leads a funny, fast-paced, and practical talk about how we can guide employee and customer behavior in the most helpful ways possible.

Charles Duhigg, New York Times Bestselling Author & Pulitzer Prize-Winning Columnist

Supercommunicators - The Power of Conversation and Hidden Language of Connection 

Why do some conversations succeed — while others fail? How does communication work within our brains, our families, our workplaces, and our communities? In this keynote on Charles Duhigg’s new book Supercommunicators: The Power of Conversation and Hidden Language of Connection is about what happens inside our minds when we open our mouths and ears. SUPERCOMMUNICATORS know the importance of recognizing – and then matching – each kind of conversation, and how to hear the complex emotions, subtle negotiations, and deeply held beliefs that color so much of what we say and how we listen. 

How do SUPERCOMMUNICATORS do what they do, and what can we learn from them about bridging divides? In this talk, audiences will learn why some people are able to make themselves heard, and to hear others, so clearly. With his spellbinding storytelling that takes us from the writers’ room of The Big Bang Theory to the couches of leading marriage counselors to CIA officers trying to recruit spies, Duhigg shows how to recognize conversations and the tips and skills we need to navigate them more successfully. In the end, Duhigg delivers a simple but powerful lesson: With the right tools, we can connect with anyone.
