Influence and Resistance to Influence in Marketing

le 30 janvier 2015
Organized by Marie-Laure Gavard-Perret, Professor of Marketing, UGA

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 disseminating new research, sharing best practices, and encouraging the evolution of new research ideas and themes. I have assembled, 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 with interesting and innovative insights on influence and resistance to influence : Dominique ROUX (Paris Sud University, Saclay, France), Mario PANDALAERE (Ghent University, Belgium), Emanuela PANDRELLI and Paola CILLO (Bocconi University, Milan, Italy). I also have the pleasure of featuring one distinguished practitioner keynote speaker in the program : Pierre GOMY, Deputy Managing Director, Millward Brown France. Through this diverse program, I hope to not only help participants advance their knowledge on influence and resistance to influence, but also to inspire the social influence sub-discipline through relationships and dialogue with distinguished scholars and practitioners across disciplinary boundaries.
