MRS &more Annual Conference
This is a conference designed especially for young professionals working in research and analytics. New for 2019, the conference will be a day of compelling presentations on topics such as storytelling, the World Cup and Love Island! Amongst the speakers will be Bessie Pike of Walnut Unlimited, who will be delivering a session called: Participatory Research – giving power back to participants.
“Nothing about us without us” – long have trailblazers shouted this mantra from the rooftops, but many commercial research agencies are yet to embrace the progressive and inclusive methodology that is participatory research. Bessie Pike from Walnut Unlimited and Claire Bates from ICM Unlimited present the double MRS Award winning case study demonstrating the power of participatory research in influencing policy changes for the MS Society. Young researchers will learn the tools of the trade for implementing participatory approaches in their own research, and the advantages and pitfalls to watch out for, with top tips from experience in the field.
