Jo-Ann Foo shortlisted for two MRS Conference Awards

Jo-Ann, an Associate Director at Illuminas has been nominated following her assured performance at this year’s conference in London. She has been shortlisted for ‘Best Newcomer’ for her presentation at the Pecha Kucha session: And that’s why I love market research! The judges said

‘Jo-Ann’s high octane ‘Pecha Kucha’ presentation got this innovative session off to a cracking start. Well prepared, clever, fluent, funny, managing to be at the same time both self assured and self deprecating, Jo-Ann spoke for exactly 20 seconds against each of her allotted 20 slides. But this was no mere party trick. A genuine love of market research shone throughout this tour de force, leaving her audience gasping, exhilarated and (let us hope) inspired.’

The second nomination is for ‘Special contribution to Conference’ as part of the Pecha Kucha panellists for devising and presenting the session: And that’s why I love market research!
