Anthropologists have spent over a century immersing themselves in unfamiliar cultures to uncover the secrets that govern how humanity has developed. Now, that knowledge is applied to a different context to understand how anthropology can make sense of people’s behaviour in business and beyond. Gillian Tett outlines how anthropology shapes consumer habits, the cultural shift taking place within businesses and how it all affects the decisions that we make every day. The result is a wholly new way to make sense of human behaviour.

About the author: Gillian Tett is the chairman of the editorial board and the editor-at-large, US, at the Financial Times. Perhaps best known for predicting the 2007-8 financial crisis, Tett’s bestselling book Fool’s Gold was one of the definitive books on the crash. Tett holds a PhD in social anthropology from the University of Cambridge, where she studied marriage rituals in Tajikistan.

This event will have live subtitles provided by Stagetext, delivered by MyClearText.
