This event has now passed

As marketers we must never assume that we know what is going on in the heads of our customers. The starting point for all great marketing is to undertake thorough customer research: research that will inform our strategic
marketing decisions and objectives for the next year and beyond.

What are the most effective techniques for gaining this crucial knowledge? Bespoke sales funnels? Focus groups? Spending qualitative time with customers? Backing up your hypotheses with quantitative survey data? How can
you pick out the insights that will give your marketing the edge?

With 6 of the UK’s leading marketers in a panel, followed by small round-table discussions, we’ll explore the tried-and-tested approaches and techniques that have yielded the most exceptional results.
