Welcome back to Intellicast! This week Brian Lamar and Producer Brian sit down to discuss the latest market research news, the start of conference season, and have a conversation with EMI’s intern on what she is learning about market research in school and how it compares to her learnings on the job.
Kicking off the episode, Brian and Producer Brian discuss the sudden passing of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the 7 others from the helicopter crash, and give some thoughts on how it has impacted them and some of their memories of Kobe.
They then switch gears and discuss (what seems should be a new segment) the latest news about the number of personal data breaches reported in the EU since GDPR went live. You can get the full story here.
They then discuss the start of conference season, with Brian Lamar giving his recap from his trip to Miami for the Insight Association Great Lakes Chapter’s Winter Meeting. Check out the two blogs he wrote about it, one about the overall event and one on a portion of the conference he was especially proud of. You can also learn about the Underground Agency here.
Brian then gives his preview of SampleCon, taking place in Atlanta on February 3-5.
In the final segment of the episode, Brian talks with Emma, our intern here at EMI, on what she is learning about in her market research classes, and how it compares to some of the on-the-job things she’s learned over her time at EMI.
