In this session we will hear from leading researchers, heads of innovation labs and leading design thinkers about behavioural insights and design thinking. How are these approaches different? How do they complement each other? How do we know if we’re using the right tool for the job? Delegates will hear about new case studies from Australia and around the world and better understand how to use behavioural insights and design thinking for maximum impact.
