We host a range of events, including guest speakers, The Change Room, research forums and keynote presentations on behaviour change.
About the Change Room
Behavioural science is sometimes seen (and often misunderstood) as the ‘new black’ in government policy around the world, so in 2016 we launched a series of regular free events based on behaviour change – what is is, how it works and why it’s a really useful way to look at the challenges facing society today.
We call it ‘The Change Room’ and its aim is simple – to combine research and entertainment and, by doing so, bring behavioural science to life in an engaging way.
Hosted by performer and facilitator Geoff Paine, The Change Room is typically held in the CBD of Melbourne and, occassionally, Sydney.
It showcases the work of the BWA team as they bring their formidable insights and special powers to topics such as bias, mistakes, the media, ethics, how to run trials, priming, the dark side of manipulation and even the effect of comedy on behaviour change.
The events are typically interactive, using live polling to find out exaclty what’s going on in the room and how it changes.
Have a browse through the various topics to find out more about each one – you’ll be surprised how much we pack into The Change Room.
