Fieldwork Forum - November

Incite, 3rd Floor, 11 Soho Street, London W1D 3DL

9:30 AM - 12:30 PM


A discussion forum for Agencies with a particular specialism in fieldwork/data collection (including freelance interviewers/moderators/recruiters who are BHBIA Personal Members).

The BHBIA are very keen that our fieldwork members have the opportunity for a stronger voice and increased recognition as valued partners in the market research process. Our Fieldwork Forums are focussed on ways to foster best practice and to make sure that fieldwork-related issues are given appropriate prominence with the BHBIA membership generally as well as at our major meetings. You are very welcome to attend whether or not you have been to one of the previous Fieldwork Forum meetings - please do come along and get involved!

We are grateful to Incite for offering their facilities to host this meeting.

Arrival and coffee from 9am for a 9.30am start

This Forum will pick up from our previous session on 20th July with a roundtable discussion about our Screener Guide & Best Practice document - how to make the most of the principles and translate them into actionable points. The latest version will be circulated ahead of the session.

We will then tackle key considerations for fieldwork agencies under GDPR, leveraging main take outs from the BHBIA Seminar on 7th September.
