Ever wondered how market and social difference can make a real difference to the world around us?
Ever fear that your reports are doomed to gather dust in a filing cabinet, without being used to their full potential?
The Victorian YRN is please to invite you to come and hear from senior researchers about how their research has made a tangible difference to our world.
Our speakers will share stories that will leave you with a renewed passion for our industry, and you’ll come away with a few tips for how to make an impact with your research, whether you’re agency side or client side.
Joining us will be:

For the past six years she has worked in the Customer Insights team at PTV coordinating all divisions of the business with their research needs through both tracking and ad-hoc projects. From both a supplier and client perspective, Sally will touch on the positives and challenges when working client side, how agency side prepared her in her role and talk through examples where research has made an impact within the business.
