There will be three ‘Making a Difference’ prizes; one for the best international NFP case study, one for the best local/domestic NFP case study and one for the most innovative case study. The winners will be announced at ESOMAR’s Asia Pacific Conference on the 15th May. Each of the three winners win a donation for their featured Not-for-Profit and invited to present their work at a special ‘Making a Difference’ session at this year’s ESOMAR Congress, in Berlin, on the 25th September.

We know the people we’re trying to help very well – we don’t need to research themOur Donors see research as a cost – they don’t want to see us spending money on itWe’re not sure how to go about doing it – we don’t have anyone with experience on the staffIt’s very expensive, not worth it for usWe wouldn’t know what to do with itIt’s just not relevant for usWe’re too small – we don’t need to do researchWe never thought about it

At ESOMAR Foundation we’re convinced that every not-for-profit organisation can benefit from research, can do their job better by understanding the people they’re trying to help more deeply, and that research really can make a difference for everyone.

To convince you we’d like to invite you to a complimentary session at the ESOMAR Congress in Edinburgh, dedicated to this conviction of ours. You bring your issues, skepticism, doubts and questions, and we’ll show you how research could help you do your work better.

ESOMAR Congress has been leading the way in insights innovation for 7 decades, and this year is no exception. It is the biggest event in the industry; the place where creativity, innovation, and insights collide.

We guarantee that you will come away inspired, and with ideas and even definite plans to use research to help you in your work. And if we can’t find a solution for you, we promise we will eat our not only our hats, but our sporrans and kilts too!
