Welcome to GRBN News

We have received great feedback to the launch of the participant engagement initiative last week, and already have some more companies come on-board, which is fantastic. You can find out which are the latest companies to join us and keep track of the full list of partners here. The kick-off meeting will be held in a couple of weeks, so drop us a line if you are ready to join the party!

We are also delighted that the first companies have signed up to donate resources to help tackle the UN Global Goals and we encourage you to join them, if you want to help our industry give back to society in this meaningful way.

Finally, we are very pleased that Sotiris Makrygiannis, Founder of Eliademy, has taken the time to share his thoughts on the democratization of education, and we are proud to be working with his company to increase the opportunity for people outside our sector to learn more about market research and insights, and for people within it to develop their expertise.
