2020 Virtual Conference – FREE for financial Research Society Members & Partners for 2020-21

Our annual face to face Conference has been moved to an online virtual format this year due to COVID-19. We had just completed the full conference program when the COVID-19 restrictions were announced, so we are grateful to our fabulous Conference Chairs, Committee and Speakers for pivoting so quickly and agreeing to move the whole conference online.

To help people with work commitments and screen time, the virtual conference event will be run between 12 noon-3.30pm each day for 4 consecutive days (Monday 3rd August – 6th Thursday 2020) and will include local industry speakers as well as global keynote speakers. 12 hours of industry relevant content delivered to your computer.

As a thank you to all of our amazing Members and Company and Client Partners – this conference will be FREE to everyone who has renewed their membership or partnership with us for 2020-21. You will have until the end of July 2020 to renew to receive free member access.

New Professional Research Handbook – Find an Expert

The annual Research Society Directory & Yearbook has a new name – The Professional Research Handbook -  and it is now being released in line with our financial year. Our client-side researchers still request a hardcopy version of the Professional Research Handbook so they will receive it in the mail this week. The handbook includes showcases 200+ companies and their services as well as including lists of Research Society Members, Partners, QPR Members and companies with ISO and Fair Data. This essential reference tool also includes The Research Society Code of Professional Behaviour and associated Guidelines and Fact Sheets.

Have a terrific week everyone – stay safe and enjoy the loosening of restrictions around the country.

Kind Regards,

Elissa Molloy, CEO, The Research Society
