Keynote - How people really make choices

"You make 8,000 choices a day, 99.95% of which are unconscious." Imagine that you are able to figure out how people really make choices? Hein Heijen will talk about how people use their conscious and unconscious mind while making decisions. 

What will you know after the talk what you didn't know before?
Most people think that their decision making process is dictated by their conscious brain. Recent science shows us that this is not always the case. It is our subconscious mind who is the leader in making choices in life. I show you which signals in the outside world, determines internal human processes while making a decision for a product, brand, service or a person.

For who is this talk?  

  • For people in sales - to realize even more sales through psychological knowledge and skills and to deepen and broaden relationships with customers
  • For people in marketing - to optimize communication with sales staff and customers
  • For people in HR management - to function even better; point of contact within the organization; maintaining contact with trade unions and / or the works council; to shape the recruitment and  selection policy; and motivating and optimizing employees
  • For people in education - to motivate and steer students towards desired behavior so that goals are achieved
  • For people in managerial positions - to get the most out of employees
  • For you as a person - because you are interested in people and in processes that take place in the unconscious and conscious mind of you and someone else
