Hear from the industry's leading thinkers and practitioners:
Big data provides ginormous quantities of information about user behaviour, analysing but interpreting this avalanche of information provides plenty of challenges for marketers. This event brings together the worlds of psychology, behavioural economics and statistical analysis to provide actionable insight.
Whilst ROI remains top of the agenda, raw analysis of the numbers only provides a top-line insight. The cream from this proverbial vat of data, is how people behave both individually, as a group and the dynamics of influence within these fluctuating groups.
Building on the debate from the first event, this half-day conference provides a chance to delve into the area in more detail with an exciting line-up of experts from both academic and marketing worlds, bringing together theory and practice with plenty of time to quiz the speakers.
