Who We Are
Nancy is a teacher. And a public health expert. And an expert in the science of behaviour change. Oh, and she loves to write curriculum. Funny girl. She loves to learn and to inspire that same spark of learning in others. Armed with five degrees in education, sociology, public health and leadership and 30 years of experience, she has served as a teacher, a developer of global competency sets and toolkits, a curriculum and toolkit developer/designer for assorted audiences and literacy levels, and a behaviour change expert in low-resource, response and complex situations in over 85 countries. She has worked with schools, communities, ministries, academia and NGOs and has authored numerous books on teaching, public health pedagogy and behaviour change.
Lisa is a researcher at Geneva University. She also works as consultant for policy makers to integrate behaviour change into their programs. Her dream is to use applied psychology knowledge to make the world a little better. To reach that dream, she holds a PhD in Psychology, defended her thesis in 2017, and founded a consulting company, Behaviour Change Expertise. Both on the scientific and practitioner sides, she tries to bridge the gap between theory and practice.
Marcel is a graphic designer. And a communication designer. And an expert in User Experiences. Hm, and he has a passion for games and how it can change behaviours. Marcel has worked with a variety of big, international organizations and small startups, ranging from security and financial industries to health and education. Most recently, he has shared his visual storytelling and design skills with communities worldwide to empower them in issues directly related to their health. This included information provision on Zika and HIV prevention, Healthy Ageing, reproductive health and TB Stigma. With a background in software development and more than a decade of consulting experience, Marcel is an all-round talent who can embed himself into any team, yet keep a fresh ‘outsider point of view’ when translating academic communication or a company's vision to an approachable and usable level for any audience.
