Behaviour Change Marketing Bootcamp training for healthcare communicators

In one-day get to grips with behavioural science and how it fits in healthcare communication

Trainer - Ruth Dale -  Award-winning behavioural science marketer


This day is specifically designed for healthcare communicators who want to put the patient at the centre of their work but also seek to shift from awareness raising to action.

Behavioural science is the most effective way to shift your communications and campaigns from awareness to action, so you can make a profoundly positive impact.

The training is carefully curated so each workshop builds on each other. You will learn the foundations of behavioural science and start using them on a work challenge. For this reason you are encouraged to bring a work programme/ challenge with you. Tick off your to-do list whilst also learning must have skills!

This is a fantastic introduction or refresher to using behavioural science in health communications. It is skills-based training and you finish by 3.30pm able to start using it in your work.
