This week the UTS Business School, in partnership with the Global Association of Applied Behavioural Scientists (GAABS), hosted the 2023 UTS Behavioural Lab Conference. This year, the ~75 people in the room shared interests and expertise in behavioural science and its potential application to change behaviour in a way that limits our contribution to climate change.
I was very happy with the program we put together, which you can check out here.
I want to thank Professor Prabhu Sivabalan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Enterprise Learning), for opening the conference with his sage insights.
I want to thank Nathalie Spencer, Chapter Lead of GAABS Asia-Pacific, for being a champion for the event.
I want to thank our keynote speakers, Professor John Duffy, Professor Matthew Hornsey, and Professor Sara Dolnicar, as well as Dave Trudinger and Clare Power for sharing their experience and wisdom.
I want to thank our UTS Behavioural Lab speakers from the Economics UTS department: Nathan Kettlewell, Liqing Chen, Benjamin Young, Mikhail Anufriev, and Aleksandra Erakhtina.
I want to thank our UTS Behavioural Lab speakers from the UTS Marketing department: Natalina Zlatevska, Eunbin O, TaeWoo Kim, Jake An, and Nathan Moore.
I want to thank Professor Mikhail Anufriev, Acting Deputy Director of the UTS Behavioural Lab, who co-organised the event with me.
A special thank you goes to Professor Mikhail Anufriev who co-organised the event with me. It was a pleasure working together.
An even more special thank you goes to Candice Gouck and Emily White who literally made it all happen.
I hope to hear about all new collaborations that emerge from the great conversations I could see happening during the breaks (and facilitated by the post-conference drinks!).
Here’s a video of the event that we put together:
Overall, it was a great event and I hope we’ll be able to do something together again next year.
