Static Preview

Excerpt from a panel presentation of the Business In The Community Ireland Summit on Corporate Responsibility: Transforming to a Sustainable Business was held on Thursday 18th November 2010.

The panel includes James Quincey, The Coca Cola Company; Sir Stuart Rose, Chairman, Marks & Spencer; Prof Roger Steare, Cass Business School; Richard Jackson, Olympic Delivery Authority; and Gerard O'Neill, Amarach.

In this excerpt we hear from Gerard O'Neill of Amarach Research on how the pricing trap employed by marketers to sell product  is undermining sustainability initiatives and products while price is but 30% of the purchase decision is about price, 70% is about emotion, feelings. The importance of the circle of trust and the social environment in the decision making process by consumers points the way to get of the pricing trap.

We need to talk about an injustice by Bryan Stevenson
Static Preview

In an engaging and personal talk -- with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks -- human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America's justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the Equal Justice institutecountry's black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America's unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness. There is an excellent presentation on Prezi that should also be viewed and shared here.

Bryan is founder of the Equal Justice Initiative.

Are we in control of our own decisions? asks Dan Ariely
Static Preview

Behavioral economist Dan Ariely, the author of Predictably Irrational, uses classic visual illusions and his own counterintuitive (and sometimes shocking) research findings to show how we're not as rational as we think when we make decisions.

It's become increasingly obvious that the dismal science of economics is not as firmly grounded in actual behavior as was once supposed. In "Predictably Irrational," Dan Ariely tells us why. Filmed in December 2008.
