About Anne Thistleton’s talk

We all know that our mind governs the way we see, understand and interact with the world. But until recently we didn’t know how we actually processed all of the incoming data to make sense of the world.  Instead, we learned to accept the fact that sometimes we made useful connections and sometimes not.

With the invention of brain scanners in the 1980s and their extensive use for that past several decades, experts have now gained insight into how our mind truly works, how we process information and how we make decisions.  Consequently, new marketing concepts from Neuroscience, Behavioural Economics, Neuromarketing, etc. are becoming plentiful. And books, articles, videos, talks, blogs, even neuromarketing consulting and research companies abound. But very few are explaining the basics in simple terms, and very few are clear on the implications for us.  What should I do tomorrow to apply this new knowledge to deliver better impact and results for my clients?


Tickets are priced at £30+VAT for BCI members and £45+VAT for non-members.
