Why get married? How Julia Margo changed her mind

We explore the value of direct experience in changing people’s minds, as well as delving into why it’s harder to change on some issues than others.

Business leader, former think-tanker and journalist Julia Margo talks about her radical volte-face on marriage. We explore – and question – the value of direct experience in changing people’s minds, as well as delving into why it’s much harder to divert from the status quo on some issues than others.

Hosting are mobilisation expert Ali Goldsworthy, behavioural scientist Alex Chesterfield and corporate affairs adviser Laura Osborne. Between them, they have 40 years’ experience of looking at what motivates people to take a stand, back a cause, become an advocate or change their behaviour.
