On Friday, June 12, Ogilvy Consulting UK will host the 2020 edition of Nudgestock, the can't-miss festival where creativity and behavioral science intersect. This year, Nudgestock goes virtual—but that only means Nudgestock is bigger and better than ever.
Register today to hear from an impressive roster of speakers and guests, headlined by three of the world's pre-eminent thinkers.
Dan Ariely is the James B. Duke Professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University and a founding member of the Center for Advanced Hindsight.
He is the author of the bestsellers Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, Dollars and Sense and Amazing Decisions. He is also co-creator of the film documentary (Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies.
Dan is committed to describing his research findings in non-academic terms, so that more people will learn about this type of research, discover the excitement of behavioral economics, and possibly use some of the insights to enrich their own lives.
Cass Sunstein is currently the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard.
He is the founder and director of the Program on Behavioral Economics and Public Policy at Harvard Law School. In 2018, he received the Holberg Prize from the government of Norway, sometimes described as the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for law and the humanities.
From 2009 to 2012, he was Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and after that, he served on the President's Review Board on Intelligence and Communications Technologies and on the Pentagon's Defense Innovation Board. Mr. Sunstein has testified before congressional committees on many subjects, and he has advised officials at the United Nations, the European Commission, the World Bank, and many nations on issues of law and public policy.
Mr. Sunstein is author of hundreds of articles and dozens of books, including Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness with Richard Thaler, and Too Much Information. He is now working on a variety of projects involving the regulatory state, "sludge" (defined to include paperwork and similar burdens), fake news, and freedom of speech.
