5 Reasons Behavioral Science Nerds Love ClickerExpo

Filed in - Science - Events

Although ClickerExpo is not strictly a scientific conference, its Sessions & Labs often have a scientific focus and always have a scientific basis. So, if you are a behavior nerd and proud of it, you’ll feel right at home. Here are the top five reasons why:

#5: We Live on the Edge

The leading edge. That’s a trite phrase unless there’s a track record to back it up—and we have that. Groundbreaking concepts and terminology that are now part of our training lexicon were introduced or popularized at ClickerExpo by ClickerExpo faculty members. Will you be there for the breakthroughs of 2017?

#4: Doctors Are in the House!

Dr. Susan Friedman and Dr. Jesús Rosales-Ruiz anchor the behavioral science discussions at ClickerExpo, but no faculty member is left out. Kathy Sdao is one of those doctors, too, but she never uses the title. Ken Ramirez knows his science backward, forward, and up and down, while Eva Bertilsson practically lives on nothing else but research. Laura VanArendonk Baugh is insulted if you don't declare her a member of the nerd kingdom! Those are just some of the self-declared nerds. We also have ones that don’t even realize they are nerds!

#3: Fly, Baby Nerds, Fly!

Even baby nerds get to fly high.
Although most of our pure behavioral science courses are at an advanced level, we make sure that core scientific concepts are built into the teaching of all Foundational courses as well. Even baby nerds get to fly high.

#2: No Sacred Rats

We’re proud of the fact that clicker training is grounded in behavioral science. The science part is in our blood, so we go back and examine what others might take for granted or assume is true. Science pushes forward, and so do we.

#1: We Just Have to Dish: Training, Science & Nerdy Stuff with Kathy & Susan

Need I say more? That’s an actual course title. If that doesn’t get your inner nerd dancin’ you are reading the wrong blog post!

Bottom line: You are not alone. ClickerExpo is full of people just like you. Our scientists even have groupies. Join them, and be not ashamed!

Registration Open: ClickerExpo Portland, ClickerExpo Stamford, ClickerExpo Denmark.
