Decision-making Unravelled with Behavioural Scientist Elspeth Kirkman

In this week’s Convex Conversation we explore behavioural science and its role in helping tackle some of the greatest challenges in society.

Behavioural scientist Elspeth Kirkman – Chief Programmes Officer at innovation charity Nesta – reveals how issues like the nation’s health, domestic decarbonisation and the disparity in early childhood are being viewed through different lenses to bring about positive change. 

Elspeth explains how thinking like an artist can improve our decision making – a concept explored in her new book ‘Decisionscape’ – and reveals her shock at delivering a speech at the UN with no idea she was doing it!
