Nathalie Nahai

Described as “a rare polymath with deep expertise in tech, marketing and psychology”, bestselling author and podcast host, Nathalie Nahai, draws upon a rich background in human behaviour, web design and the arts, to offer a unique vantage point from which to examine the complex challenges we face today.


About Nathalie Nahai

Having studied psychology and worked as a web designer early in her career, Nathalie’s frustration at the lack of a comprehensive framework through which to understand online behaviour, led her to write what has since become an international best-seller, Webs Of Influence: The Psychology of Online Persuasion (Pearson).

Adopted as the go-to manual by business leaders and universities alike, Webs Of Influence has been translated into 7 languages, and alongside her new book, Business Unusual: Values, Uncertainty and the Psychology of Brand Resilience, serves as the cornerstone for Nathalie’s work with clients including Google, Accenture, Unilever and Harvard Business Review, among

A popular speaker, consultant and facilitator to Fortune 500 companies, Nathalie has lectured at some of the world’s most prestigious institutions (from Cambridge and UCL universities, to Lund and Hult business schools), and her experience as a skilled communicator has seen her present at SXSW, host the Guardian Changing Media Summit and hold main stage interviews at the Web Summit.

Whether speaking to audiences of thousands, or leading executive roundtables for private clients, Nathalie’s ability to ignite conversation and offer tools and strategies with which to harness human potential, has helped countless organisations transform how they approach business.

From ethics and human behaviour to persuasive tech, Nathalie addresses the specific challenges faced by larger, more diverse brands and organisations today, including: the psychological dynamics behind evolving consumer behaviours, the challenges of engaging millennials and Gen Z, how to harness self-determination, the move towards eudaimonic well-being, the role of social identity in social media, identifying and expressing values with coherence, ethics and integrity, resonant communication and marketing, brand resilience and reputation, and how to ethically apply behavioural science principles to enhance your platforms, content marketing, product design and customer experience.

Whether you’re looking to communicate more resonantly, engage people more persuasively or create cultures of integrity that better attract and retain both employees and customers, Nathalie’s insightful, actionable keynotes and workshops offer a robust roadmap to help you navigate uncertainty with greater skill and success.

In 2021 Nathalie launched, a free tool developed in collaboration with Dr Kiki Leutner of Goldsmiths University, to help people within organisations understand, communicate and practically express the values they stand for. A behavioural science advisor and member of the BIMA Human Insights Council, Nathalie also hosts Nathalie Nahai In Conversation, Guardian podcasts, and contributes to national publications, television and radio on the impact of technology in our lives. She is also the founder of Flourishing Futures Salon, a project that curates gastronomical gatherings to help leaders explore how we can thrive in times of turbulence and change.

Booking Information



"Nathalie’s presentation at the Fujitsu Executive Discussion Evening was absolutely on-brief. She took the time to understand our objectives and the topic, and to customise her content. Her delivery was impeccable and she came across as wholly credible yet eminently likeable."


"Nathalie Nahai had a group of 500 of our sharpest, most plugged-in customers riveted as she delved into her fascinating research on why people share. You can tell when a person is a born performer, and Nathalie has that extra something that makes it impossible not to give her your undivided attention."


"Nathalie has a deep expertise and understanding of what motivates web users and how interactive design can enhance (rather than detract from) one’s online experience. She also has a delightful and engaging style that allows her to connect with large audiences and keep them arrested throughout her presentation… It’s a rare skill indeed."

Harvard Business Publishing

"Nathalie's session was the highest rated session at the entire event. Her topics fit our business needs really well – marketing thought leadership, interesting perspectives on how to influence human behaviour in the digital world, and why personalization and authenticity are key. There are tons of people who can talk about shopping behaviour or brand loyalty but I hadn't seen any that came from the psychological perspective and whose talk track fit nearly as well into our conference themes."


"One of the best rated speakers at our conference. She is passionate, engaging and has great knowledge to share."

WebArts AG

"A supremely charismatic and knowledgeable speaker, she’s exactly what we were looking for in a keynote speaker and she exceeded our extremely high expectations."
