CEO Update: New Report 'The Great Change Accelerator' > Welcome New Partners > Upcoming Training

1st Feb 21

One of the many lessons that 2020 taught us the need to ensure we are continually striving for best practice in our organisations and staying connected with our colleagues in the research sector.  It is our goal to ensure that we continue to keep our members informed and connected throughout 2021 no matter what the circumstances we need to negotiate!

So here is an update on some current news and activities. 

The Great Change Accelerator Report

The Research Society is proud to launch a new international report that provides a unique perspective on the resilience and prospects for the insight sector. A joint initiative with our strategic partners  - the MRS (UK) and the Insights Association (US) brings together 30 leaders from the most innovative and influential brands and agencies. Understand their challenges in the year gone, and what they believe lies ahead in 2021 and beyond. Launched last week the report is available for all members and company and client partners.

Breaking News! Webinar with Stan Sthanunathan
25 February, 11 am (AEDT)

In 2021 we introduce a new webinar series Learning with Insight Leaders where we bring some of the key leaders in insights to a screen new you.

We start the series with Stan Sthanunathan, Executive Vice President of Consumer & Market Insights, Unilever. Stan will explore the issue of change in the insights industry and discuss the Power to Impact our Future & Business.

Everyone talks about tech, big data, agility these days. These are important but don’t define our function’s success. They are necessary but not sufficient conditions. In the next decade, the skills required are going to evolve further. What we do today will shape our future and the impact we create on businesses. As a profession we have had a relatively conservative positioning. The time to evolve that is NOW. This webinar will talk about one approach to doing that while leveraging other big changes like tech and big data.

For this exciting chance to hear from one of the leading voices in the insights industry, REGISTER HERE.

Kind regards
