Interview with Uri Gneezy in FD

Together with Arjan Haring from The Control Group I am the co-organizer of a Meetup called Business Experimentation. On a regular basis we organize Meetups with local speakers and international speakers. At the end of October we were in for a treat when Uri Gneezy, one of the worlds most influential economics of this time, according to Forbes, was in The Netherlands. He was enthusiastic to do a presentation. For this inaugural Business Experimentation meetup Uri talked about how to combine data science with behavioral science and why this is important for businesses.

After the presentation a select company was invited to enjoy an exclusive dinner with Uri Gneezy. All in all a great night, especially since FD, the Dutch Financial Times, interviewed Uri and published a nice post about his visit. This was already the second article in a row in FD, the first one was with Sinan Aral (I Love Experiments).
