EphMRA Switzerland Online Meeting – Upskilling the role of Market Research – an industry perspective

September 28, 2020 @ 1:35 pm 1:45 pm

This meeting is taking place in CET

Speaker: Yvonne Engler, Bayer AG

Convenor: TBC


Market research, like any other discipline, must adapt to even faster business changes and whenever it’s possible become the driver of change. Agile transformation, digitalisation, new players in the field such as data sciences are just a few drivers of change. Remaining relevant seems to be the big challenge and delivering strategic insights faster and more efficiently is becoming the new normal, given ongoing budget constraints in most corporations.  Traditional research methods need to be re-evaluated and new ways of generating customer insights have to be looked at and of course, innovation remains key. So how can we best address these changes and upskill the role of the market researcher?

Yvonne will open this meeting with some food for thought on these issues and share her views from the industry perspective.
