Inspirational talks about creating change – delivered on your smart phone!

We have some amazing speakers visit us at Occ Health Sci. However, only the select few who brave the OHSU parking scene get to see them! We also have great speakers at our symposia (access recorded webinars here), but want to keep experimenting with new ways to spread great ideas for making positive changes at work.

What if we video recorded compelling talks by scientific and business innovators in creating organizational and behavior changes? Well, we’ve done just that!

In partnership with the Organizational Behavior Management Network, Occ Health Sci is co-sponsoring a new speaker series titled Behavior Change Innovations. Our joint selection committee will invite notable scientists and business professionals to give video-recorded talks for the series. Each speaker will share their most powerful insights for creating changes to make our lives, organizations, and societies better.

The series is driven by one core question:

“what behavior and organizational change tactics have scientists and business innovators discovered that should be urgently applied?”

Please check out highlights from our first two invited speakers!
