Liam is Director and co-founder of BehaviourWorks Australia (BWA) and one of Australia’s leading authorities on behaviour change.
Liam is committed to using behavioural science to tackle public policy issues for the benefit of individuals and society at large and, since establishing BWA in 2011, he has overseen significant growth in the enterprise, which now employs nearly 20 researchers and been directly involved in conducting and/or overseeing more than 200 behaviour change research projects.
By design, the BWA team consists of researchers from different backgrounds and disciplines who use their collective expertise to undertake applied behaviour change research in collaboration with government and industry professionals.
BWA, therefore, acts as a bridge between academic research and practical real-world solutions.
Liam has also led the development of a research methodology that is used to inform, develop and design behaviour change interventions – and improve their efficacy.
Liam has published numerous research reports, research papers and public discussion pieces and is an active contributor on Zoos Victoria’s Science Committee, South East Water’s Customer Engagement Council and VicHealth’s Leading Thinker Taskforce.
An exceptional public speaker, Liam believes that education and training is vital to wider uptake and application of behavioural insights. As such, he has delivered accredited education, executive training and public presentations to audiences around Australia and the world.
He regularly delivers training to government professionals through the Australian and New Zealand School of Government and the Department of Premier and Cabinet (Vic)’s Behavioural Insights Unit.
