Insight for health & wellbeing

11/05/2021 @ 10:15 - 15:30 UTC+0

- £25 – £90

OVERVIEW

Wellbeing is a state in which we are happy and healthy. It includes good mental and physical health, high life satisfaction, a sense of meaning or purpose, and meaningful social relations.

Simply knowing this does not protect us from health pandemics. And we do not solely refer to COVID-19. Consider the following World Health Organisation facts. Globally:

  • 1 in 6 die from cancer
  • 2 in 5 adults were overweight in 2016
  • 1 in 10 adults suffered from diabetes In 2019
  • 264 million people suffer depression.

In light of these alarming figures, are governments and businesses paying enough attention to health? And of those who are, are they being effective? If so, why?

At our event, Insight for Health and Wellbeing, we explore how leading organisations are using insight to support their health and wellbeing programmes. We share how insight can support the immense change that is needed in our society to live healthier.

If you apply the insights you learn at the conference, then you will more likely be able to meet your organisation’s health and wellbeing goals.

Takeaways

During this event, we will show:

  • why putting insight and behavioural understanding at the centre is the very first step in tackling the wellbeing and health challenge
  • why health is defined as ‘state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of illness
  • how insight is already supporting organisations to develop their health programmes
  • how contextual and social influences normalise unhealthy behaviours and what to do to reverse this
  • from behavioural changes in nutrition, exercise and our exposure to toxins, what are the most effective insight tools that will lead to successful health programmes? What can we learn from context analysis, segmentation and customer journeys when applied in the health arena?
  • how behavioural concepts play in adopting a healthy lifestyle and what nudges should concerned organisations and institutions adopt to promote healthy lives
  • what the Behavioural Sciences can offer to socially focused organisations to develop, market and sell healthier products and services
  • what policies and programmes are successful and how behavioural understanding already contributes to health policy development.
