In addition to our Summer Party and Annual Conference, we hold 5 ‘Forum’ events in London and 2 Northern Forums in Leeds or Manchester, each year from September to June. Our 2019/20 Forum programme is currently being finalised so watch this space. If you are interested in attending or speaking please get in touch with

The Forums provide business researchers an opportunity to network, exchange views and catch up on the latest thinking in the business market research world.

BIG Forum –
A Breakfast Briefing

Tuesday 19th November 2019
8am – 10am

Wellington House
125-130 Strand

Human Numbers and Numbered Humans – Presented by Jack Miles and Alex Holmes from Northstar Research Partners

Quantitative research has been criticised for being overly-rational, dehumanised and only able to deliver value because of quantification bias. Similarly, qualitative research has been criticised for being subjective and lacking the scale needed to deliver value to businesses.

Often these criticisms are accepted as being ‘methodological flaws’. However, shouldn’t researchers look to solve these flaws rather than accept them? Especially when the solutions to these criticisms often already exist.

Join us at the BIG Forum on 19th November to hear more about how qualitative and quantitative research can solve one another’s flaws and enable research to deliver better value to B2B marketers.
