Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - February 2018

Well, GDPR is certainly looming and is becoming a 'hot topic' among ICGers. Please go to the website where you will see we have set up a dedicated area on the home page for any GDPR related information or resources - and if you come across anything that will be helpful to others please let me know and I will post it for the benefit of all.

This month, we feature a report from LiveMinds about recruitment and looks at how the industry can address concerns over participant quality. John Gilbert shares his latest Brexit poll and looks at how people are thinking and feeling about the prospect of an exit.

The Language Factory has once again produced a very handy 'country holiday' infographic for 2018 - so if you want to know when to avoid fieldwork, look here. And don't forget to look through our suppliers pages if you need support. Many suppliers offer ICG members discounts so it is always worth a quick browse - for example, TS Research Assistant is offering 20% introductory discount throughout February (see their entry for more info).

On a lighter note, ICG committee member Deb Simmons reflects on the benefits and challenges of working remotely, and we report on new year festivities in the East. And the MRBA is gearing up for its annual aution - if you can make a donation of a prize please do get in contact with them.

As ever, if you have any comments about the ICG or this newsletter please do get in contact - and if you would like to contribute to the website please let me know.


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
