What is The HeyHuman Podcast? The format is simple – we invite a series of guests from around the world to explore some compelling, complex, ambitious, and unusual ideas. Those that focus on behaviours have been proven to work better. ‘Behaviour Changing Ideas’ need an understanding of humans and of what motivates them and at HeyHuman this is what we believe in. Successful ideas and campaigns also need a bit of luck and a healthy sense of humour along the way, so there will be a bit of that too. Join our CEO, Neil Davidson, in the sometimes funny, sometimes more serious pursuit of mastering what makes communications connect.

    A Bloody Mary in a can?! Sounds like a bloody match made in heaven.
    This week on Behaviour Changing Ideas podcast Neil is joined by Bloody Mary enthusiast Will Best, who’s idea behind Bloody Drinks started with his and his mate’s frustration that you can never find a decent Bloody Mary in a pub. 
    Neil and Will discuss the many more elements that go into a good Bloody Mary than your standard Pornstar Martini, the difficulties and challenges of working on a start-up, and how an investor defrauding the Danish Government led him to co-found Bloody Drinks. 
    The canned drinks market is constantly growing in popularity, and Will spent over 2 years ensuring his Bloody Mary was the best out there. Bloody Drinks are now available at many top supermarkets, have won the Great Taste Award 2021, and proved that a Bloody Mary is suitable at any time of the day, and anywhere on the go.

    10 years. That’s how long Oliver Steeds thinks we have left to halt the irreversible damage to our oceans.
    Speaking with Oliver, Chief Executive and Mission Director for Nekton Foundation, our CEO Neil learnt how changing our perception of what is “free” and the power of scarcity might just hold the answer to saving the planet.
    Are the solutions staring us right in the face? What more we could all be doing if the pace of political change is so worryingly slow? Does it start with smaller, individual behaviour changes? Should we all be going for a trip to the seaside?! 
    At times, it’s unclear who is interviewing who…
    The latest episode of our Behaviour Changing Ideas podcast is essential listening. Scary, provocative, and inspiring. (Oliver is also great company.)
    Oliver is a critically acclaimed investigative journalist and broadcaster. His films, reports and series have been broadcast by @NBC, @ABC, @Al Jazeera, @Channel 4 and @Discovery Channels.

    What better way to kick off the new year than with a brand-new episode of our Behaviour Changing Ideas podcast?!

    This week Neil is joined by the staggering brain and close friend of the agency, Paul Skinner, Founder of MarketingKind and Agency of the Future.

    Set up in the early stages of the pandemic, MarketingKind brings together marketers and business leaders to lend their creative and problem-solving skills to finding tangible solutions to real world problems. Boldly kicking off by asking the question ‘What if marketing wasn’t selfish?’ the growing community has gone on to tackle issues ranging from climate change to social inequality.

    It’s marketing, but not as we know it.

    Neil and Paul talk about the charity’s unusual and audacious launch campaign (including auctioning Rory Sutherland on eBay), its successes so far, and its grand ambitions to keep on delivering positive change in the future.

    Embarking on a 1000 mile pilgrimage across Africa to reset before then deciding you’ll build a plant-based snack food brand, that will also tackle modern slavery and human trafficking?
    Sure. We’ve all been there, right? Wednesdays!
    We are excited to be joined on this week's  ‘Behaviour Changing Ideas’ podcast by the brilliant Rob Martineau, co-founder of TRIBE. 
    Just a few weeks ago, TRIBE celebrated having raised £1m since their inception. Neil and Rob chat about the birth and growth of the TRIBE community, ‘The Plant Revolution’, and how (and why) he walked away from corporate law and then 1000 miles across Africa.

    Pets are for life, not just for pandemics. 3.2 MILLION households in the UK got a new pet during CV19. That’s an awful lot of new mouths to feed, and an awful lot of poo bags needed. For pet care brands, an awful lot of logistics to fulfil.
    CV19 (and the trend of Brand Dispersion it accelerated) has had a massive impact on businesses and the way we shop. For some it brought new growth opportunities- most notably those already ‘oven ready’ for their products to be bought, shipped, delivered, (and then bought again)- online, which in turn helped to keep our high street stores alive and our pampered pets pampered.
    Fittingly then, in a year when Nature’s Menu celebrates its 40th birthday, Neil is joined by Managing Director, James Langan, to see how they managed to achieve such success over such a turbulent time. They chat about furry friends, ‘human leadership’, and why being agile has, and always will be, so crucial. Not just at Crufts.
