Virtual Presentation presented by the Defense Alliance of North Carolina featuring keynote speaker Rick Leander, Executive Director, LFB Holdings
Are we Star Trek’s Mr. Spock, leaning on logic and rationality? Or are we more like Homer Simpson, seeking instant gratification and easily swayed? Behavioral Economics provides solid insights into the supposedly irrelevant factors that impact the way we analyze choices and make decisions.
Leveraging this science will improve your business results by making it easier for your customers to do business with you and increase employee engagement. Come learn how organizations are using these tools to shape their future of work.
