Full-day team session to become behaviour change experts
Book an online workshop today
The day-long bespoke masterclass, with a one-hour individual follow-up session for your team, will introduce you to behavioural insights; the theory as well as how you can apply them to real-life scenarios and campaigns faced by your organisation.
The course is aimed at those in communications, policy or operational roles who want to understand more about behaviour change principles and applying them in their organisation, with a focus on campaign planning.
You will come away with an understanding of our very own BEST framework (Behaviour, Examine, Solve and Test) along with other behavioural models, EAST (Easy, Attractive, Social and Timely) and COM-B (Capability, Opportunity, Motivation and Behaviour).
You will also gain an appreciation of what drives human behaviour; the barriers that prevent people from taking action and how to bring predictability to what appears, on the surface, to be unpredictable human behaviour.
A pre-session questionnaire will help determine team priorities for the day.
During the course, you will work through the BEST framework to give you a behavioural framework to plan your campaigns, improve service delivery and bring predictability to what appears to be unpredictable human behaviour.
How can behaviour change theory help you?
Behaviour change theory can help tackle a range of topics facing public sector organisations today. Attendees will receive a pre-event survey, so that case studies are tailored to campaigns and scenarios you are facing today. Examples include,
Increasing recycling rates, as well as tackling littering
Prompting people to take more exercise
Encouraging people to take the vaccine and booster jab
Encouraging people to make healthier life choices
Promoting sustainable methods of transport e.g. walking and cycling over car use
Helping to tackle climate change through individual actions
Encouraging people to shop local and to make better choices when they shop
Help residents deal with debt and save more
Shifting residents from offline to online services
And these interventions are often at much lower costs, compared with traditional forms of communications, involving small changes, or 'nudges' to communications or processes.

The masterclass is suitable for those in communications, policy or operational roles, in the public sector, who are involved in managing campaigns and projects where an understanding of behaviour change theory and its application will be useful.

The behaviour change training was a really valuable day – fascinating and insightful. The most value was definitely being able to practically apply the theory to live campaigns that we are currently working on. It was incredibly useful having a real example of what’s worked and what hasn’t – the team are much more confident in applying behaviour change theory into their campaign planning now.
