North Sydney Sunrise

We are men and women who meet regularly in North Sydney for fellowship, networking and breakfast!

It's a great way to make new friends. We come from many walks of life and backgrounds with a common goal - service to the community (local and worldwide) through fellowship.

04 October 2022 - Juliette Tobias-Webb 

How can we actually enable stronger action on climate change using behavioural insights?

With the rise in polarisation, it is important to reframe how we think about changing someone's mind. If you want to bridge the gap, it’s more productive to appeal to someone’s identity, motivations and social networks than to their logic. Dr Juliette will present evidence from psychological science to help us understand why we are polarised, how we can shift peoples beliefs and judgements, and how we can create sustainable behavioural change (without changing people's minds). 

Dr Juliette Tobias-Webb is a Chief Behavioural Scientist, Senior MBA Lecturer and one of 60 women in Australia nominated as a Superstar of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). 

Dr Juliette has a PhD in Experimental Psychology from Cambridge University (focused on gambling behaviour) and has worked for a range of leading government and corporate organisations to design better products and services for human decision making and behaviour change. Dr Juliette has been a Senior Manager in Behavioural Science for Commonwealth Bank, the Behaviour Change Lead for Ogilvy Australia, and a Research Fellow for the Behavioural Insights Team. Dr Juliette has also run large scale behaviour change programs for clients such as Atlassian, Citibank and PWC. 

Guests are always welcome.
