About your course facilitator

Dr. Neale Martin has been working with high-tech companies since 1994, helping them adjust their strategic thinking in light of rapidly evolving market realities. For the past several years, he has worked on updating the principles of marketing in light of cognitive psychology and neuroscience research, which revealed that human behavior is mostly the result of unconscious habits. The result of this endeavor is ‘Habit: the 95% of Behavior Marketers Ignore’.
