Influence and Resistance to Influence in Marketing

le 18 novembre 2016
Organized by Marie-Laure Gavard-Perret, Professeur of Marketing, UGA. 2nd Workshop

Purpose of the Workshop

Social influence has been shown to play an important role in marketing. Interactive social influence and noninteractive social influence have effects on consumers. But, our understanding of influence conditions, influence process and risks of resistance towards influence in a consumption context or in a persuasion context is still limited and there remains much to be learned.

The goal of this conference is to advance knowledge about influence, by diseminating new research, sharing best practices, and encouraging the evolution of new research ideas and themes. Around the very famous speaker Darren W. DAHL who is a global leader in the study of consumer behaviour, a group of high quality international researchers : Maria GALLI (ESADE, Barcelona, Spain), Anne-Kathrin KLESSE (Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, Netherlands), Nancy PUCCINELLI (University of Bath, Bath, United Kingdom), and Marie-Claire WILHELM and Marie-Laure GAVARD-PERRET (Grenoble Alpes University, France) will present their findings on interesting and innovative insights on influence and resistance to influence.
