The COVID-19 crisis has forced us all into a new context almost overnight, and it requires new approaches from all of us. Organisations or people that know how to influence choice and shape behaviour are far more likely to get clients, employees or citizens into the desired action again. That is why SUE has decided to make possible what we never did before: you can now access the FULL Advanced Course training in a one-week Summer Course. Submerge yourself into Behavioural Design again and give yourself a know-how and skills update. The end goal? You will be able to confidently run every step of a Behavioural Design project on your own. As a bonus, we will work together on a case of your own, so by the end of the week, you will return home with a Behavioural Design solution to one of your challenges.

We are in the business of mastery

We are not simply in the business of knowledge transfer, are goal is mastery. We want every participant to be able to apply Behavioural Design in daily practice. That's why we won't let you go after the two days of training and we offer follow-up training.

By participating in the Advanced Course, you will take an essential step in further mastering the Behavioural Design Methode™, or in other words, the ability to design choice and behaviour by using behavioural psychology. The crucial insights from behavioural economics will be part of the training, but foremost they will be made very practical: how can you use theory in daily work life? It, therefore, builds on any knowledge you might already have about behavioural psychology. However, previous know-how in this field is not needed.
