Talking Points

If Batman Owned your Business

Whether it be your business, your brand or your people, everyone seems to be obsessed with finding and communicating their strengths. Seems like the right thing to do, problem is everyone else is doing it too. Our strengths are very likely to be generic. There is an alternative path to growth - we can learn from Batman, someone who gets his strength paradoxically by embracing (and amplifying) his weaknesses. Adam Ferrier will talk about the science behind this counter-intuitive approach, and why it's already working for many businesses around the world.

This talk draws on the fundamental drivers of human behaviour, and explains why we are all more attracted to businesses, brands, and people brave enough to be vulnerable. In this talk Adam will

- Encourage delegates to explore a new path to growth - embracing weakness
- Demonstrate the body of psychological and cultural evidence why this is such an effective path to growth
- Provide tactics and tools people can apply
- Use, and draw upon a number of case studies he has personally been involved in.

The Advertising Effect

How To Change Behaviour

We all want people to change; whether we want consumers to buy more, employees to work more or colleagues to think more - if people did exactly what we wanted them to we would all be happier… and richer. In this provocative presentation, based on his best selling book, Adam Ferrier, the man driving consumer engagement for brands such as Levi’s and Pepsi, arms delegates with a new way of thinking around, and inspiring, lasting tangible change using a potent blend of human psychology and advertising know-how.

Sharing his understanding of the fundamentals of why humans do what they do and buy what they buy Adam will:

- Encourage delegates to utilize the behavioral science behind motivation theory
- Shed light on the key factors that must exist to create lasting change
- Provide tools and techniques to put this new knowledge into practice
- Flip everything you thought you knew about why we do what we do, on it’s head
