Priscilla asked me “Why ESOMAR President? Why now?”
I have over a decade of experience building and scaling non-profits, like ESOMAR. I launched Women In Research in 2007, which now serves over 12,000 researchers globally and I’ve served on the board of the ESOMAR Foundation for the past 6 years, transforming it from an entity that was largely reliant on ESOMAR funds to a self-sustaining Foundation that serves researchers in need.
With over 25 years of research experience as a serial entrepreneur (OTX / Forefront / Decipher) and now an industry growth strategist and advisor (ScaleHouse), I have a keen understanding of how to navigate rough waters during turbulent times. My businesses survived the dot com crash of 2001, a major economic recession in 2007 and now a pandemic – if there is one thing I excel at, it is pulling my businesses and clients through tough times- and I’m committed to doing the same for our industry and for ESOMAR.
That means the following…
- Expanding on Council’s current platform of “building bridges” so that we’re a truly global association that serves our members on any and every continent.
- Bringing younger researchers into ESOMAR so that, as an association, we remain relevant to the new generations that are driving the evolution of the industry.
- Opening our arms to data scientists as well as second- and third-party data providers so that the importance of data quality and ethics isn’t lost as our industry evolves.
