Our Expertise

 

Behavioural economics is an area that is growing, post financial crash, where business, universities and the media are looking at the way cultural and social factors influence economic decisions both at personal and corporate levels. Here at The Behavioural Economics Forum we draw commentators together to create original research and to provide a focus on the latest issues and challenges.

Forum founders Matthew Locke and Heather Fearfield have had successful careers in financial PR and marketing and journalism.

 

Matthew worked for Robert Fleming, Kleinwort Benson and Hill &Knowlton/WPP. He advised on the Swedish Stock Exchange bid for the LSE and the Better Payment Practice campaign for the DTI.

 

Heather has worked as a television producer for The BBC, Channel Four Television, Granada Television and BBC World Service Television. She has facilitated financial, healthcare economics and leadership forums.

Heather and Matthew also created Future Cities Forum in 2016 which debates best practice in the regeneration, design and development of cities.
