Event Details

Experience and behavioural science show that people’s opinions are often inaccurate or untrustworthy. Yet so much of marketing and sales strategy is based on this approach. Join us in our panel discussion where we consider how to re-invent consumer research with behavioural science and see how Artificial Intelligence and big data could help brands access deep consumer insights and behaviour bias.

Discover the ways personalised experiences and content are important in growing businesses. What are the newest available tools in helping us understand how people are wired by personality traits? We will introduce what we call "Cognitive Personas" and a new form of "Cognitive Segmentation", and how this should drive the future of our marketing industry.

Date: 21 May 2019, Tuesday    
Time: 5:00pm – 7:00pm    
Venue: BASH, Level 3, 79 Ayer Rajah Crescent, Singapore 139955
