Our first event


Last night we held our first event  - a great turnout and loads of really good input.

Here are a couple of photos – the Angels and Demons session seemed well received and the Diary Room was busy all night.



The pitch session involved the role of research in launching a new beer, a press advert featuring Chris Tarrant, the "Decision Tree" and finally a short and punchy radio advert.





Coming soon is our second event (16/10/13) for those in the industry with over 4 years experience (more details below in earlier post) as well as an online quantitative survey we’d like everyone in the research industry to take part in.
