Call for Speakers

The Toronto Chapter is looking for presenters for their upcoming speaker series for Spring 2017. We hope you will be interested in sharing some of your insights and case studies with others in the industry to stimulate more creative approaches and insights to research.

Our speaker series is intended to educate our peers on hot topics or trends in the industry, innovative research approaches, etc. Please note, any type of sales-pitch presentation will not be permitted. The Toronto Chapter Board will review applicants’ submissions and contact those who’ll provide the most value to our members.

In order to be considered as a speaker for our Fall/Winter series, please submit a brief outline which highlights:

  • An outline of your topic;
  • Why it would be of interest to the industry?
  • Speaker bios; and
  • Any technical requirements.

We are particularly interested in (but not limited to) presentations that include uses of social media, mobile research, new technology uses, brand insights and innovation, client side learnings, and supplier side insights with these areas, cutting edge qualitative techniques.

To submit your outline or for more information, please contact:

Jennifer Tilk
Chapter President, Toronto

We thank all those that apply and will contact only those of interest.

Pub Night & Social Bingo

We would like to thank everyone who came out to our Pub Night. More than 60 people showed up and participated in our Social Bingo where they had to find out personal and professional interests of their peers and fill them out on their bingo cards. It was fun, engaging and proved a great opportunity to make new connections and friends! We would like to thank John Melnyk for the initiative. 

Congratulations to our 3 Social Bingo winners: 

Kimberley Sanderson - RBC
Rick Chad – Chad Management Group
Dan Schutten – Phase 5
