Why People Don’t Do Things: Part 4

Our audiences receive hundreds of messages asking them to take better care of themselves, their families and community, and their environment. On top of that, we ask them to support people, animals and places far away from them. Getting bombarded with all these messages creates a natural cynicism. An understandable stance of “why should I?”

Why People Don’t Do Things: Part 3

Our audience may have tried to do the action, but it got too difficult to complete. These are situations when we’ve made all the right steps to motivate people to do something, overcoming status quo bias and all, but then presented our audience with a cumbersome process for following through on their desired action.

Why People Don’t Do Things: Part 1

It’s our tendency to jump to solutions. After all, time is of the essence and we need people to take conservation actions. But I feel it’s really important to first understand why people aren’t doing these things now – and why they may not do them at all – so we can figure out the best ways of motivating them.

What You Need to Get Your Customers to Take Action

As change agents, our messages and calls-to-action are competing with the overwhelming amount of information and advice that’s out there. An important method for breaking through the noise and getting people to take action is to FOCUS our calls-to-action on one thing.

How Advertising Can Create Positive Social Change

Advertising has always fascinated me.

From the early days of Wendy’s “Where’s the Beef?” to Under Armour’s inspiring “Will Finds a Way,” commercial advertising regularly influences my understanding of the world around me.

Word on the street

Brooke has the theoretical and practical expertise to advise and train conservationists from diverse backgrounds and cultures. She is dynamic, and passionate about the work she does as well as the people she works with, and is an enormous pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Paul Butler

Brooke is an excellent trainer and highly capable facilitator who creates a positive, stimulating training atmosphere. Her experience in commercial marketing and behaviour change for conservation NGOs is clearly evident.

Brooke’s understanding of current science and business trends opened up new ways of thinking about what we have to market, who we should be marketing to, and how to reach them.

Ann Staples
NC Public Health

Brooke’s 3-day course had great balance between lecture, exercises, and group work. She is at home in front of the room and creates a space where participants are actively engaged.

Christina Imrich
Wildlife Conservation Society

This was one of the clearest, most direct webinars that I have attended. Brooke Tully did a fantastic job. Her slides were as easy to understand and follow as her talking points.

Kim Young

Brooke has a unique ability to think conceptually and strategically, but not in a way that is divorced from real-world reality.
