  • 12.10 - 12.50 Case study: The worst behavioural bias of all! All or nothingism

    A lot of things in the world would cause a great deal less anger and misapplied effort if we could only accept BOTH AND a little bit more and demand EITHER OR a little less.

    Last mile and performance marketing is really, really valuable. But not on its own.

    Bees, which are 19m years older than us, know this already.

    What makes sense can be dangerous. Because what behaviours make sense at a small scale may be dumb at a large scale. Or when copied by everyone else. Or repeated too often. Or all three.

    This may explain why digital advertising makes sense to its practitioners. Yet to consumers it seems entirely dumb. And its effect on the wider economy may be highly damaging.

    Vice Chairman
    Ogilvy

FINITE Fest is run by FINITE

FINITE is the free, member only global community for ambitious B2B marketers in tech, SaaS and software to connect, learn and grow.

The FINITE community began in 2019, initially taking the form of London based meetups for B2B tech marketers. 2020 was a turbulent year, but it only highlighted the importance of our mission. As land borders closed, digital ones opened up, allowing us to build a global community of ambitious B2B tech marketers from London, New York, Singapore, Tel Aviv, Melbourne, and many more.

Now, we’re 1800+ members strong, and host weekly podcasts with guests like Rory Sutherland and April Dunford, a monthly webinar series with speakers from Hubspot, AWS, & Google, a fortnightly newsletter on B2B tech news, have an active Slack community, publish interview series with senior B2B marketers and run animated data reports on B2B tech trends.
