NEW HORIZONS Keynote speakers
We're delighted to announce keynote speaker for the RANZ 2019 Conference is Ray Poynter.
Founder of NewMR.org, Ray is a long-standing member of MRS and ESOMAR, and a member of the ESOMAR Council. He is the author of The Handbook of Mobile Market Research, The Handbook of Online and Social Media Research and the #IPASOCIALWORKS Guide to Measuring Not Counting, editor of the ESOMAR book 'Answers to Contemporary Market Research Questions'.
Andrew Cannon has more than 25 years of experience as a market research practitioner on both the agency and client sides and currently divides his time between running a boutique research agency in Helsinki, working as Executive Director for the GRBN, and serving as President of EFAMRO, the European Federation of Market Research Organisations. His keynote talk will focus on how to build the business impact of Insights in an evolving customer-focused business environment.
Sue York is the Chief Curator of NewMR, curating and organising the Festival of NewMR, Radio NewMR and other NewMR online learning events and a Market Research Consultant.
Sue will be presenting an introduction to Chatbots and their use in the research environment. Chatbots have rapidly emerged as the hot new kid on the research block, with an increasing range of companies offering Chatbot solutions for research. The discussion will include Chatbots as qualitative or quantitative tools, research design for Chatbot tools and considerations for sampling, response rates and analysis options.
Carmen Vicelich is not your typical anything – a powerhouse entrepreneur who has rapidly built two multi-million-dollar, international data and technology businesses at the same time as balancing life as a wife and mother of four young children.
Duncan Stuart is a crowd favourite at RANZ conferences, so we couldn’t but help invite him back as a local keynote speaker after winning People’s Choice Award yet again in 2017. We are waiting to see what magic Duncan cooks up for us this year - so watch this space!
