Professor Alan Tapp

Behaviour change: Let's work together!

Why do so many behaviour change programmes seem to be so narrowly defined by, say, behavioural economics, or psychology?

Effective behaviour change interventions are often multi-disciplinary – these have a synergy or a “multiplier effect”. Alan will deliver his thoughts on current practice. No stone will be unturned as he challenges our vested interests, bounded rationality, silo-mentalities, discipline-blindness, defensiveness, and even academic snobbery. Opportunities to make a step change in the returns on our behaviour change dollar will be outlined.  Alan will challenge us to get together and identify leadership that stands above the fray, transcending ‘party politics’.
