Career in Data, Research & Insights 
Being successful in times of rapid change 
New tools, skills and methodologies are needed to understand how the consumer is moving in a constantly changing scenario. 

It's time for brands to stay close to their consumers to capture and analyze their emotions, feelings, behaviors and consequently offer them unique experiences through relevant products, services, communications and initiatives. 

This event offers students the opportunity to approach the world of market research.  
The case histories presented will demonstrate the value of market research and the need for tools that are increasingly updated and adapted to new market situations.

Understanding Excitement 
Improving Formula One racing and TV coverage using biometrics 

At Formula 1, it is vital that TV coverage maximizes fan experience by generating as much excitement as possible. We developed an innovative research methodology, using in home biometrics to monitor how fans engaged with races being broadcast live on TV. 

The insights have meant the development of a more fan-centred product, driven higher viewing figures and influenced the regulations of the sport for future seasons.

A Brand Blueprint for the Future 
Get ready for the future! 

It's clear that after Covid-19 there will be no going back, for both consumers and companies, and more broadly, as society as a whole. 

Quite the opposite, we will see a changed consumer mindset, with both consumers and brands sailing towards the future in unchartered, complex waters. 

This demands that companies future-proof their strategies with a brand new set of skills and tools.

We have identified and bring to you 7 trends that will represent your fundamental dashboard to navigate the times ahead.
