About the Speaker

About the Speaker

For over three decades Dr. McKenzie-Mohr, a psychologist, has been working to incorporate scientific knowledge on behavior change into the design and delivery of community programs. He is the founder of community-based social marketing and the author of three books on the topic. One of these books, has been recommended by Time Magazine and become requisite reading for those who deliver programs to promote behavioral changes that support sustainability and public health. He has delivered workshops internationally for over 70,000 program managers and served as an advisor on a broad array of community programs.

Advanced Workshop


This two-day advanced workshop provides an in-depth exploration of how community-based social marketing can be used to foster sustainable and healthy behavior. The session will introduce leading-edge material on selecting behaviors, identifying barriers and benefits to selected behaviors (including topics such as market segmentation, selecting random samples, and survey construction), utilizing behavior change tools (some exciting new developments regarding the use of commitments, norms, communication, social diffusion, and goal setting in increasing the adoption of sustainable and healthy behaviors will be covered). In addition, the workshop will address the effective use of social media, smart phone apps and websites in the promotion of behavioral changes (in particular, we will explore why the use of social media and websites often fail to produce changes in behavior and how you can use these resources more effectively). The session will also address advanced topics regarding the design and evaluation of programs as well as the calculation of return-on-investment for programs. Further, participants will be coached in making community-based social marketing presentations to their agency or community and will receive PowerPoint and Keynote presentations for this purpose. Having attended an introductory community-based social marketing workshop with Dr. McKenzie-Mohr is a mandatory prerequisite for this workshop. If you have not previously attended an introductory workshop, you can register for the introductory workshop that is being held in Dallas on January 16th and then attend this advanced workshop.

Please note that we do not expect to deliver community-based social marketing training in Texas for several years. If you would like to obtain advanced training in community-based social marketing we encourage you to register early as we expect the sessions to fill quickly.
