Predicting People podcast: Episode 2 with BT’s Georgina White & Philippa Rose

Predicting People!
Background Oval

Welcome to Dectech’s podcast, Predicting People! Here at Dectech we help businesses understand and manage consumer decision making. After two decades of forecasting behaviour changes, we wanted to share our knowledge of what affects our choices, our behaviours, and our experiences of products and services, what works in getting to grips with behavioural measures and predictions, not just in theory, but how these insights are applied in client-side challenges. Predicting People is a podcast, all about the applications of behavioural science in the commercial world. In each episode, we invite experts to talk about how behavioural science has been affecting their business, and how they see it being used in the future.

In the second episode we were delighted to be joined by Georgina White and Philippa Rose, who spoke to us about the BT Insights Team, the challenges they face in proposition design and how Behavioural Science can provide solutions.
