What’s hot in market research?
Ray Poynter, from The Future Place.
20 August, 2014

There has been an explosion in the insight business. New technologies including location, mobile, social, and passive data collection have expanded the range of what can be collected. Changes in our understanding of how the brain works have led to innovations such as behavioural economics, gamification, and neuroscience. New approaches such as big data, social media listening, A/B testing, and DIY have challenged the position of market research as the prime provider of insight. All of this increases the need to monitor trends, to asses what is hot, and to prioritize where to put your time and resources.

In this presentation hear Ray’s take on what’s hot, what is trending, and the key changes to focus on.
