Council on Marketing Research

While the world has changed tremendously since this council’s inception in 1946, the basic concerns of marketing research have remained the same: we want to gain insight into the behavior of consumers, and we need to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing activities. Some recent council topics:

  • Sports sponsorship ROI
  • Brand positioning development and brand architecture
  • New analytical tools and emerging trend research

At council meetings we share best practices on data collection, analytics, and other aspects of marketing research. Between meetings, we often assist each other with timely and practical advice.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
