While at a conference recently I took the photo below. To me it summarises the current situation in the UK when it comes to recycling.
It was no surprise earlier this week when it was announced that 3D TV will be no more. Television manufacturers will, we’re told, cease production of 3D sets due to a lack of demand.
A rather disappointing weekend visit to a local gastro-pub has induced my latest blog and got me thinking about customer service and the customer feedback process. On this occasion the food order I made wasn’t complex – a prawn sandwich with a side of coleslaw – but, alas, it didn’t live up to expectations.
If you’d have asked me to score the food overall I’d probably have given it a 3, maybe 4 out of 5, but if you’d asked me why and probed a little, I’d have told you that first impressions were very good. The presentation was great and the food looked appetising. But sadly it didn’t taste anywhere near as good as it looked.
Today marks a significant landmark in organ donation within the UK, with the introduction of an opt-out organ donation scheme in Wales, whereby people who do not want to donate their organs will have to formally opt out.
The enthusiasm with which our own employees have relished our wellbeing initiative (everything from boot camp to herb planting!) got me thinking about the topic of employee engagement, having seen the impact it has internally but also from the numerous employee research projects we’ve delivered to our clients.
NEUROBLOG 2: What we know about how the brain processes information can lead to better research design
Back in January in my first neuroblog I looked at the link between the brain’s use of glucose, and how the brain processes information. Now I’d like to explore the way we process images and how it can be used to design better research projects.
What we know about neuroscience might impact on how we design and deliver market and social research projects. My first ‘neuroblog’ considers the impact on decision making of the brain’s need for and use of glucose, and how we might use this relatively new learning when devising our research.
There are a lot of statistics out there. I should know; I’m partly responsible for the creation of many of them (12.47% according to some sources)! As most of us know, any argument can be supported with a statistic from one survey or another.
You can learn a lot from observation. It’s an undervalued approach to research in my opinion. And where better to observe others than while travelling on a train? It’s almost unavoidable.
