Intellicast S4E19 – Return to the Office and MR News


Welcome back to Intellicast! Today’s episode starts off with an announcement from Brian Lamar and Producer Brian that Intellicast is now part of C-Suite Radio!

Producer Brian gives a bit of background on what C-Suite is and what is means for the podcast going forward.

The guys then jump into a discussion on returning to the office and being there on a regular basis starting in June. They discuss how it will be a bit of an adjustment since they both have been working from home since the start of the pandemic, but how the return is different and more flexible. 

Next, the guys talk about two different news items from SampleCon. First, that they will be holding SampleCon in-person July 12-14 in Pasadena, CA. Brian and Brian reminisce about when it was initially announced and how they both thought is was a big gamble given the state of affairs at that time. They are both glad they were wrong, and the gamble is going to pay off.

Next, Brian Lamar talks about the fundraising initiative SampleCon started called, The Heart of Insights: India Initiative, to help raise funds to purchase oxygen condensers for India to assist with the on-going COVID crisis there.  Brian gives some details on how the whole thing came together and the results so far.

The guys then switch gears and dive into some market research news, starting with the new partnership between HubUX and FastFocus.

The guys also touch on the new ESOMAR study around the buyers and users of insights, new analysis from Data For Progress that showed a polling bias due to an overrepresentation of liberal voters, and DISQO’s new ad effectiveness report.
