Face to face workshops

Face to face workshops offer core courses for enhancing the skills of social and market researchers.

The courses cover key aspects of our profession – spanning both qualitative and quantitative research, and with a focus on subjects and content that are directly applicable. Face to face workshops will deliver valuable new knowledge and skills so that delegates can keep pace with a rapidly changing marketplace.

Each course will be 4 to 8 hours long with a focus on delivering practical skills with a short-burst duration. Courses will be delivered face-to-face in one central location to maximise the quality of learning and to facilitate interaction between class members. This concentrated learning experience will deliver maximum knowledge in the minimum time in recognition of the time demands on today’s research professional.

To encourage members located outside NSW to participate, discounts are offered to help offset the cost of interstate travel.

Both qualitative and quantitative topics covered.

You can mix and match to meet your learning needs. You can choose a topic from each half day’s offerings to meet your individual requirements. Attend 1 or more sessions.
