Rory Sutherland

Vice Chairman, Ogilvy UK, TED Global Speaker, Author of Alchemy

Rory Sutherland is the Vice Chairman of Ogilvy, an attractively vague job title which has allowed him to co-found a Behavioral Science practice within the agency.
He works with a consulting practice of Psychology graduates who look for ‘unseen opportunities’ in consumer behavior - these are the often small contextual changes which can have enormous effects on the decisions people make, for instance tripling the sales rate of a call center by adding just a few sentences to the script.
Put another way, lots of agencies will talk about “bought, owned and earned” media. We also look for “invented media” and “discovered media”, seeking out those unexpected (and inexpensive) contextual tweaks that transform the way that people think and act.
