Graham Jones is a psychologist and customer behaviour expert who helps businesses understand how their customers behave online, so that they can more appropriately connect with them. He was one of the first psychologists in the world to start investigating the way human behaviour has adapted to the online world; speaking at conferences and consulting with a number of businesses, helping them engage more fully with their online customers and thereby helping to improve their brand, sales and profits.
Graham helps businesses discover how their customers, staff, suppliers and competitors use the Internet. As a result, Graham provides psychological insights into online behaviour that enable modern businesses to profit from the Internet. Those increased profits might come from using Graham’s psychological analysis of consumer behaviour, or they might arise from using the Internet within your business in more productive ways, adapting to the behaviour of your staff or suppliers.
Graham firmly believes that when businesses gain a greater understanding of how people behave online, they can increase their profitability through improved communication or more engaging ways of using the Internet.
Graham is the author of more than 30 books, a Member of the British Psychological Society and is a Visiting Lecturer at the Business School at the University of Buckingham. He is also an Associate Lecturer at the Open University and an award-winning writer / contributor to many magazines and newspapers as well as online publications. His own blog reaches over 100,000 people. Furthermore, Graham is a Fellow of the Professional Speaking Association and one of only 17 people in the UK to have received the prestigious “Professional Speaking Award of Excellence”. He is regularly interviewed by the media and appears in newspapers, magazines, or on the radio or on TV each week.
Graham Jones speaks at a wide variety of conferences and events and is used to presenting in front of audiences of various sizes, from 3 to 3,000, and in a variety of formats; he’s as comfortable on the large stage as the office workshop.
Every talk or workshop Graham presents is bespoke and designed specifically to help each individual audience. There are, of course, many common themes which Graham gets asked to talk on including Online Consumer Psychology, The Future of The Internet and the Psychology of Online Productivity. Wherever possible, he prefers to interact with his audience. Graham makes this possible even with very large audiences by using online technology to engage with people asking questions or commenting using their mobile devices. He is also a well-known storyteller and weaves a variety of amusing anecdotes into his presentations, to help engage the audience. Graham’s “signature stories” include how he managed to get aboard the Royal Train by accident; how he interrupted Margaret Thatcher mid-speech; and how he avoided getting beaten up by thugs because of his job!

The Internet is Killing Your Business
Most businesses are losing money as a result of the Internet. The online world is dominated by just a small number of huge, global organisations. The rest of the business world is actually struggling to use the Internet profitably. In this presentation, Graham Jones reveals the psychological impact of the Internet on office productivity, exposing just how the online world is robbing organisations of time, analytical thinking and creativity - all of which are contributing to reduced profitability, in addition to the problem of intense online competition.

In this presentation, Graham Jones shows the steps necessary to achieve online success.

Once a company understands this, they can work out what they need to do to succeed. Graham provides them with the step-by-step method to achieve this.
