Festive networking: Explore Impulse Shopping, Temptation and Self-Control Behaviours

Picture of Business Perspectives Logo

The Open University Business School would like to invite you to join our complimentary festive networking event, exploring Impulse Shopping, Temptation and Self-Control Behaviours.

The evening will be a combination of networking and short keynote presentation by Professor Mark Fenton-O’Creevy, who will discuss what we know about impulsive buying behaviour and recent developments in the psychology of temptation and self-control. This is relevant to behaviours as diverse as spending, dieting, alcohol and drug abuse and getting fit, as well as being remarkably important to senior managers and traders in investment banks.

Mark will offer insights from his own and others' research; as well as offering you the chance to score yourself on a range of measures designed to give you insight into your own behaviour.

Mark has made several appearances recently on MoneyBox, the Radio 4 series on personal finance, as well as television appearances on BBC1 and STV discussing our emotional and psychological relationships to money and our vulnerabilities to financial scams (both illegal and legal).
