Speaking Topics -
Dollars & Sense (Financial & Investment Decision-Making):
How do our clients, employees, and partners think about money, why do we make so many irrational financial decisions and what can we do about it? Jeff shares the practical and entertaining insights of behavioral science to help create better financial decision-making structures for the irrational and illogical among us. He exposes the hidden forces that secretly drive choices about money, explains why irrationality overrides logic in finances, saving, and investing, and then provides practical tools to reframe our financial choices and, ultimately, live better lives.
Understanding Why We Do The Things We Do (Consumer Decision-Making):
Why don’t we value our future comfort and security as much as our present pleasure and spending? Why do certain choices often feel like they cause physical pain?

Jeff explores these questions and more as he dives into the heart of the consumer decision-making process.
