Meet the world-leading behavioral economist Uri Gneezy in this eye-opening talk about how to use incentives. Incentives send powerful signals that aim to influence behavior. But often, there is a conflict between what behavior we say we want and what behavior incentives promote. The result: mixed signals. Now you can attend an inspiring talk about how incentives really work by Uri Gneezy, a world-leading expert in behavioral economics. Uri will talk about how incentives work and how they sometimes create problems. In a recent book building on behavioral economics, game theory, psychology, and fieldwork, Gneezy outlines how to be incentive smart and design rewards that are simple and effective. Join us for this mind-provoking and engaging talk.
