If we want to mitigate human risk, we need to engage the humans that might crystallise it. But how can we do that effectively?

My guests, Lasse Frost and Jacob Danelund have been working on this challenge for some time. Their focus is on engaging target audiences, using techniques that range from gamification — turning something into a game — to story-telling, the natural way we all learn as children.

Lasse and Jacob both work for Implement Consulting, a firm based in Denmark, that as you’ll hear, brings a very Danish way of looking at this challenge. I came across Implement when they were launching Complayance - a combination of the ‘Compliance and ‘play’ - a digital platform that delivers Compliance training through a compelling gaming interface.

Lasse and Jakob aren’t just designers, they’re also podcasters hosting a show called The Human Firewall.

In the episode, we explore why traditional approaches to the challenge of engaging people, sometimes don’t work and what more effective ones might be.
