Behavioural Insights

The study of humans and their predictably irrational interactions with the world

The emerging science of Behavioural Economics is increasing our understanding of the way we make decisions. This knowledge is helping businesses develop more profitable models, regulators more effective controls and governments more efficient incentives.

This session will look at the theories underpinning the science and consider some of the more common decision errors.

By the end of the seminar you will have a greater insight into the ways a gentle nudge may be more effective than a hefty shove!

What people have to say about previous events....

Beginning to plan seriously for retirement and being a relative newbie in Norwich, it was refreshing to be introduced to a firm that places great emphasis on technical analysis and thoughtful planning. Too often, in my experience, IFAs are more concerned with style over substance but Chadwicks, through their Masterclass sessions offer real insight into investment management and retirement planning. Whether as a professional adviser or, like myself, someone looking for genuine insight into the changing times of today, I would recommend the sessions wholeheartedly.

I have been a regular attendee at Chadwick’s business seminars for several years and without fail I have found the sessions to be useful and practical on the one hand whilst thought provoking and inspiring on the other. Many advisers can put on topical seminars, few can make you feel that you want to go on to study the subject yourself!
