As people are becoming more interested than ever in the opinions of experts, thought-leaders and self-proclaimed gurus, brands have taken to them to help tell their story. At the end of the day, there’s real power in influencing buying decisions. Could the real influencer not be the celebrity brand advocate nor the social media influencer but rather the actual consumer?
Social media has real power in enabling a dynamic of consumers influencing each other in an exchange of information related to products, services and brands. True influence drives action, not awareness. FinTech will take banking to the next level and that’s what this most interesting discussion will explore.
Join us for a chat with Spiros Margaris from Margaris Advisory and Chris Gledhill from Secco on 6th October at 4pm for a unique conversation on their own perspective about the power of influence and how this relates to financial services.
Marketing is about influence. It is about changing behaviour or nudging people towards a win-win decision. In today's market our customers interact with us across multiple touch points at irregular times and our job as marketers is to ensure this experience is as engaging as possible. But do we really understand all of the things that influence their decisions? By mapping our customers' sphere of influence we gain two significant advantages: more focused marketing and a tool that helps explain marketing's role in this brave new world to the businesses we work for.

Traditional models of cognitive behaviour remain meaningful, but they can fail to deliver strong links between ‘smart’, cognitive-based factors of judgement and the decision-making associated with actual behaviour change.
In contrast, behavioural economics accounts for the ‘lazy’ judgments and thoughts that occur at an automatic level, but can over-weight the prevalence of such behaviour.
On October 4 Cello Health Insight, in association with PMGroup, will host a free webinar on applying adaptive and integrated behavioural models to qualitative enquiry.
It will look at how to achieve a better understanding of what drives therapeutic decision-making and how medical marketing, digital and PR initiatives can change future behaviours in favour of achieving target sales.

According to IIA guidance, internal auditors are charged with monitoring organizational ethics and assessing whether management policies, procedures, and practices support ethical operations. And while management usually seeks to set, promote, and perpetuate an ethical climate, some leaders seem either motivated by self-interest or so focused on other operational priorities that they overlook their obligation to steward organizational ethics.
What can internal audit do to articulate this risk of unethical behavior? How can internal audit influence the tone at the top? How can internal auditors persuade management to see the value proposition for ethical leadership? This webinar addresses these questions and equips auditors, audit directors, and CAEs to make a compelling argument as to how ethical leadership drives bottom-line results.
By the end of this webinar, participants should be able to:
-Compare contrasting views of behavioral ethics
-Differentiate between moral and conditioned honesty
-Examine rationalizations commonly indicative of moral disengagement
-Explain why ethical stewardship is a primary leadership responsibility
-Correlate ethical leadership to organizational results
-Formulate a compelling argument in favor of an ethical tone at the top
