We are looking forward to getting together with the hundreds of market research and consumer insights executives at TMRE in San Antonio this November to connect, network and learn what's new and next in research practices. Our Executive Vice President of Corporate Strategy and Innovation, Miriam Konz, will be there! TMRE works toward a common goal in our industry—advancing the insights practice, developing respected leaders and driving bottom line impact with insights.
The program starts Monday morning, November 14, and we are looking forward to kicking things off with the keynote from Stan Sthanunathan, formerly of Unilever, plus some other great keynotes the following days like Dr. Poppy Crum from Dolby Labs; Emmitt Smith from NASCAR; Susan Cain from Bittersweet; and Stephen Gans from PepsiCo.
Throughout the agenda each day, we are anticipating creative sessions with companies like Colgate-Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, McDonalds, Kraft Heinz and Clorox. On Monday, Johnsonville's Karen Kraft will be talking about "Getting the Snacking Job Done: From Jobs-to-Be-Done Inspiration to In-Market Consumer Reaction" and on Tuesday, we're hoping to catch the session "From Insights Manager to Insights Strategist: How to Add Rocket Fuel to your Corporate Insights Function" with Lorin Drake of Publix Super Markets. And although Wednesday is a short day, the sessions look great—like "Accelerating our Insights Function for Transformational Impact" with Pepsico, and "Visioning for the Future" with Ulta Beauty.
Networking events are always fun at TMRE too! Look for Miriam at the Opening Night reception on Monday evening in the Exhibit Hall—TMRE will be celebrating its 20th Anniversary of serving our industry. Don't miss the networking session after the show on Tuesday either, long lunches or breakfasts and all the spaces in between. Message Miriam if you’d like to meet up.
