We've missed you Chicago! Tune in on November 18th for a panel discussion on the intersection of experience and Insights. What 10 things have the last 6 months taught us about experience? The way we experience the world looks different since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. Even in light of the worlds’ social justice awakening, how we live feels different. Therefore, studying, designing, and evaluating experiences has to change as well. In this session, attendees will hear how firms are staying ahead of the constantly changing consumption patterns and demands of today’s consumer. We'll also save plenty of time for networking and connecting, and we'll even have some raffle prizes for those who attend — register now to join in!
A BIG thank you to Schlesinger Group and Multilingual Connections for supporting this event and Women in Research — we couldn't do it without you!
