EphMRA Conference

Behavioural Economics: The answer to our prayers or just another fad?

Crawford Hollingworth, Founder, The Behavioural Architects and Di Adams, Partner, Hall & Partners

Crawford and Di tackled two questions related to the treatment and adherence of diabetes patients: How can Behavioural Economics help explain levels of patient engagement with their condition? Secondly, by using Behavioural Economics can we positively intervene to influence diabetes patient behaviour? We looked at the results of some preliminary experiments we ran earlier this year.

MRS ‘Big’ Conference

Crawford Hollingworth was joint-winner of the BIG/MRS CPS Conference Award for Best Overall Contribution 2014

He formed part of a panel debating “The Emperor’s New Clothes”: “In our quest to better understand and change behaviour, has the industry become too obsessed with the latest methodology at the detriment of good old-fashioned thinking? Are we all guilty of misunderstanding what innovation is, or where innovation should be happening? Or do new methodologies actually inspire new ideas and ‘old-fashioned’ thinking is just that: old-fashioned?”

With Sarah Davies, Founder and Gill O’Hanlon, Director, TBA UK
