Speaker, Expert, Advocate, Guy

Behavioral science empowers organizations and individuals to learn, adapt and grow.

How do you, your clients, customers, investors, employees, friends and family think about money, products and experiences? Why do we make the decisions that we do? How can we reframe decision-making to create better outcomes? What's up with avocado toast?

Jeff Kreisler can answer these questions and more.

He's a sought-after speaker for financial planners, credit unions, insurance companies, start-ups, FinTech, design firms, incubators, consumer groups, communications organizations, Fortune 500 executives, business students and everyone in between.  

Jeff offers engaging events with a focus on applied behavioral science, based upon the latest research and his new book, co-authored with Dan Ariely, “Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter."  (Under the title "Small Change: Money Mishaps & How To Avoid Them" in some international markets).

Jeff's also Editor-In-Chief of PeopleScience.com - a website about applying behavioral science principles to business practices - and host of a syndicated podcast on behavioral economics.

The insights Jeff shares can increase the efficiency, effectiveness and well-being of high network individuals, designers, managers, consumers and anyone who wants to understand our thinking, motivations and irrationality. 

He's funny, too.

Jeff speaks on practical, actionable topics with a fun, entertaining and engaging style unlike anyone else.
