The pace of change is accelerating every day – and despite what some might say about a slowness to adapt to change in our industry, change and innovation are afoot in Market Research too.

Market Research automation, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, and the InternetOfThings. These are all hot button items and I can’t wait to see where Market Research goes in the next few years.

The future is bright, but keeping up with change can be overwhelming. As a founder of Research For Good, helping to oversee a team of over 40 people, and being a wife, mother, dog-mom, and homeowner, it can be challenging to keep up with everything that’s being written and said, both about our industry, and business in general.


I haven’t perfected a system (yet!), but here are some of my must read / listen to sources.

Some specific to #MRX, and some more general.


Every day, the NPR: Up First Podcast is at the top of my list. In less than 15 minutes, you can get up to speed on previous days news. This means you’re current and ready for water-cooler chat (or if you work from home like me – so you don’t feel like you’re out of the loop). I listen to it on the drive home from dropping my kids off at pre-school. #Multitasking!


Perspectives: This new Vlog from voxpopme from is off to a promising start. But can we ask the contributors to hold their phones just a little steadier, please? #MotionSickness


The Broadsheet: This daily resource is free from the witty (read – somewhat patronising) commentary of popular daily newsletter – The Skimm. This newsletter in particular highlights the movers and shakers of women in businesses. For me, it’s daily inspiration!


Of the many, many #MRX newsletters that exist, my go-to each day is still the DRNO by Mr Web. It’s concise, easy to skim-read, and it keeps me up-to-date on industry announcements in just 2 to 3 minutes. You can have a copy sent to your inbox each weekend morning by registering here.

What quality content sources are you paying attention to right now?


What am I missing?


Do you have any great hacks for staying afloat in the deep sea of constant content?
