Intellicast S3E14 – ESOMAR, Insights Association, Press Conferences, and Board Games


Welcome back to Intellicast! Brian Lamar and Producer Brian kick off the show discussing how going virtual has been going, and if each other has gone stir crazy yet.  They also touch on the adjustments both the industry is making as a majority of people are working from home, as well as the changes they have noticed in their neighborhoods. 

In the next segment, the guys discuss the latest news around COVID-19, including the new stimulus bill and how some of the announced components may impact those in market research. They also discuss the daily press conferences, particularly Ohio and Kentucky, and the new nicknames that they have been given.

After the COVID-19 update, the guys dig into some market research news. First, they talk about the new partnership between ESOMAR and MRWeb for listing job opportunities.  Then they discuss the Melanie Courtright and the Insight Associations’ lobby efforts in Washington to get assistance for the industry.

In the final segment of the podcast, the guys try and have some fun. Brian Lamar gives his assessment of the new hot documentary on Netflix, Tiger King.  Since both guys are spending a lot more time inside, they give their top 3 board games. 

If you have a top board game, or a TV Show you would recommend.  Let us know and we will share it on our Twitter account, @Intellicast1! Stay safe everyone!
