NSW YRN - Horror Stories

31st Oct 17

The AMSRS Young Researcher Network are hosting a spooktacular evening of Research Horror Stories on Tuesday 31st October – Halloween!

The aim of the evening is to gather round, have a few drinks and look back and reflect on some of the funny, horrifying or downright absurd moments that I’m sure we’ve all experienced, and to remind ourselves- and especially junior researchers- that in the wonderful world of market research it doesn’t always go right (and in fact can go horribly wrong at times), but ultimately everything is ok, and it’s not the end of the world!

It’s supposed to be a bit of fun, and we ultimately want to use the YRN events as a platform to engage young researchers and invigorate the industry a little, so we’d love to hear from people with lots of experience as they always have the best stories! If you have a horror story you want to share you can do so by clicking here.

This is a panel discussion, so everyone is welcome to have a say!

Our selected featured speakers for the evening are:

She spent 10 years in client service at Yann Campbell Hoare Wheeler/Millward Brown before moving to Unilever where she was Director of Consumer Insight and Marketing Operations in addition to leading a successful category business team and the annual planning process for the Board. In 2009 she launched her own consultancy, Fuel. Fuel works with research agencies to help better meet client needs and tailor their own services and provides consultancy and contract consumer insight support on the client side.
