Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - October 2017

Huge congratulations to the finalists for the 2017 Independents' Day Award who have just been announced. All existing ICG members, they include Meg Kinney, Sue Diamond, Tom Woodnutt, and Dan Young. We will be publishing more about their entries over the next few months.

We also have several 'think pieces' from members, including addressing the issue of chunky questionnaires, current 'state of the nation' figures on Brexit and how to craft colourful reports. Our PR consultant gives us her observations and learnings about turning independent, and we take a look at what issues are exercising the minds of client side market researchers in a report from Quirk.

That lot should keep you busy for a while!


Don't forget we have a 'Go To' licence if you want to have a video conference or present a webinar. It is there for you, so do use it! Just drop Lucie an email
