LONDON — #OgilvyChange, the specialist behavioural sciences practice of Ogilvy & Mather UK, is to host Nudgestock, the UK’s largest gathering of behavioural sciences experts on Friday 24th May at Shoreditch Town Hall. Hosted by O&M’s Vice-Chairman, Rory Sutherland, this one day event, taking place during Digital Shoreditch 2013, will see some of the biggest names in behavioural economics discussing online psychology, the science of understanding why people make irrational decisions and the art of nudging their choices for a preferred outcome.

Discussing the psychology behind the decisions individuals make will be some of UK’s leading behavioural scientists, award winning authors and personalities from the creative advertising and design industries including Rory Sutherland, Nassim Taleb, author of The Black Swan and Dr Laurie Santos from Yale University. Rory Sutherland, Vice-Chairman, Ogilvy & Mather UK commented: “There is a big difference between invention and innovation. The best inventions in the world are worthless unless people choose to adopt them - and change their behaviour as a result. This conference is an important first step towards making technologists and psychologists natural bedfellows.”

Digital Shoreditch is an annual festival which celebrates and showcases the outstanding creative, technological and entrepreneurial talent in East London and Tech City. Now in its third year, Digital Shoreditch will run from 20th May to 31st May at Shoreditch Town hall.
