Behavioural Insights and ‘Nudge’ techniques are being used extensively across central government and the commercial sector. This approach has shown time and again how small changes can significantly reduce costs and increase revenue. Over recent years our work has shown how these techniques can be used address challenges specific to local authorities.
The role of a local authority is complex and wide-ranging. This creates a unique set challenges for the sector, currently being exacerbated by increased demand for services and falling resources.

Delegates will receive materials to take away and will be motivated and enthused to create change immediately they return to their day jobs.
We are certain that everyone can learn something from attending this course, but for immediate operational impact we suggest considering application in the following areas:
