BIG Forum Online 

Date: Tuesday 23rd February
Time: 10am

B2B Soapbox

Here’s your chance to hear what the younger voices within B2B are thinking and saying. Hear individual presentations on the following topics…

  • Bringing the human to B2B research
  • Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn’t go away – Cognitive biases in decision making
  • Talking about the challenges of doing B2B research when you’re on the front line.
  • Experiences of interviewing senior B2B decision makers
  • Conducting B2B research for PR / thought leadership

This is an online event hosted via Zoom.

Feel passionately about a subject that you don’t think is getting enough air time?

Fed up with seeing the same people, saying the same things at conferences up and down the country?

We are looking for people who normally never get the opportunity to make their voices heard to deliver a rapid 3-5 minute presentation on the topic of their choosing. There are just three requirements:

You can’t be the head of department / director or spoken at a conference / on a panel before

The subject has to be in some way relevant to B2B

We need a snappy 150 word outline of the topic by Friday the 19th of February
