Knowledge, News and Views from the ICG - October 2018

I hope you all had a great summer. And to welcome you back, a bumper two-month edition of ICG news - that should keep you going!

GDPR has been a hot topic for the past year or so - but what will happen if there is 'No Deal'? The government has published a 'what if'... and AQR has published a free webinar looking specifically at the impact on qual research.

Member contributions this month include how to engage B2B audiences more, how to target millennials, how to encourage clients to stop wasting money in research and the latest edition of the Consumer Confidence Briefing.

We also look at why being a researcher is the best job ever, how you can protect your business from cyber attacks and we review the various online group platforms that are currently available.

The ICG AGM was held last month, and we have uploaded all the relevant documents to the website - do take a look to see our plans for the next year or so. 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
