The Nudgers - How To Shift Behaviour

Heavy Chef's wildly popular evening events are now being livestreamed. During COVID-19 levels of lockdown, entrepreneurs and business owners are requesting relevant presentations that will inspire and empower them for a new, uncertain future.

On Tuesday evening, 6 pm 21st July, Professor Cass Sunstein will join Lukhanyo Neer and Louis Janse van Rensburg, the two research whizzes who head up the Heavy Chef Foundation, to discuss the topic ‘Nudge and Sludge: Past, Present, and Future’. We’re going to be focusing on behaviour and what makes people do what they do. In an era where people are more triggered than ever before, this seems like a good time to talk about it.
