Richard regularly speaks at industry conferences in the UK and abroad. Recently he has spoken at the Festival of Marketing, Cannes, DMX and Advertising Week. He is happy delivering everything from a keynote speech to chairing a panel. 


These talks are on the broad theme of applying findings from behavioural science - whether that's his own research or others - to marketing.


Recent topics include:


Why brands that admit a weakness are more appealing

How poorly set metrics can lead to unintended consequences

Why the evidence for brand purpose is flawed

How do we know what motivates consumers when they don't always tell the truth?


Examples of Richard's talks and his appearance on Radio 4's show about Nudge are below. 





Russell Parsons - Editor of Marketing Week


Richard is everything you need from a conference speaker - thought-provoking, sparky and useful. Taking part in a debate at The Festival of Marketing last year, Richard delivered a case against brand purpose that was well argued, robust and sent those watching away with plenty to think about.

We love working with Rich for WARC’s events. When he presents, we know we’re guaranteed three things – 1) a fascinating set of insights, 2) evidence and examples to back up all the theory and, 3) a crowd in raptures to hear what he says next!
