Event description

Description

The what

In this panel & co-design session, we will demonstrate how service design, behavioural science, and product design can create powerful wellbeing outcomes for customers and employees, all while driving the crucial bottom line.

We're lucky to have some amazing speakers taking part:

Henry Cho - Financial wellbeing specialist, Commonwealth Bank

Dr. Rory Gallagher - Managing Director, Behavioural Insights Team

Nick Gower - Product Director & co-founder, Mentally Friendly

Candice Liew - Head of Product, AIA Vitality

The why

We aim to challenge design's current frame of reference, and encourage everyone to consider the social impact of their actions.

Screen time and "engagement" have become all-important metrics, to the detriment of our mental & physical wellbeing. Addiction is innate to the devices we use every day.

Companies frequently prioritise profits over their social contract, but profit & social purpose are not mutually exclusive. With considered strategic direction, they can fuel each other sustainably over the long-term.

The who

This event is for anyone interested in how design changes the way we interact with each other, and its effects on our culture as a whole.
