Using psychology to sell psychology

Event number: 17557
Presenter(s): Pat Freeland-Small & Adam Ferrier


Find out what happened when a top Australian ad agency got together with psychology’s peak body

A brand is a promise that a company makes to its consumers and clients. It generates desire and differentiation and motivates people to take up and use their products or services. A brand takes many forms and incorporates more than just those tangible products and services. It also includes the feelings that consumers get when they use your products and services. How is this created so that it engages consumers and clients ? This presentation will discuss how this is developed from beginning to end; the challenges, the joys, and the learning. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions and share views.
