Yes, we are each unique – but our patterns of decision-making suggest we’re not as unique as we might think. Television host and leading New Zealand clinical psychologist Nigel Latta will explain just how the brain works and how humans make decisions. Then Bryan Lockyer, founder of regional technology innovator Direct Sourcing Solutions and the man behind big-data market intelligence solution Customer Observer, will describe how artificial intelligence accurately predicts customer buying patterns and how it can increase sales and personalise service. Finally, hear from Marc van der Putten of boutique women's fashion brand STORM, who is leading an AI-powered digital transformation in luxury fashion.
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.

He also consulted with the police, child youth and family, and the prison service. In more recent years he’s written books on both parenting and his work as a forensic psychologist which have now been published in nineteen countries. His television career has included documentaries on subjects ranging from parenting, to inequality, sugar, alcohol, Antarctic science, the psychology of money and most recently a series on neuroscience. In 2012 was appointed as an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
Bryan is a technology entrepreneur who has devoted more than 20 years to founding digital businesses in Hong Kong and Singapore. Now based in New Zealand, he heads regional tech outsourcer DSS. His current passion: unlocking the enormous potential of artificial intelligence to transform digital marketing, customer engagement and the corporate bottom line.
Following a 22-year career in digital design, consultancy and management roles you could just about call me a digital pioneer in the local market – one of the ‘originals’ from the days of Xtra in the mid 1990s. I have built my career on getting my hands dirty and constantly reinventing myself as digital has evolved, as a lead designer, art director, operations director, online operations manager and e-content manager; in agencies and in-house.
