ESOMAR Membership brochure 2014


With ESOMAR being an international body, I can see that it is a great way to meet up with people from all over the world … I am right at the beginning of my ESOMAR membership and, as someone relatively new to the research world, I see membership as an absolutely essential part of being connected to the issues that are important to the industry. I’d just like to say a big thank you to ESOMAR and its members for making me feel so welcome.
