The New Paradigm of Polling
with Jennifer Simmons
Chief Marketect, Marketexture, Inc.

Since the results of Brexit and our presidential election, the reliability of polling has been under increased scrutiny. Theories abound, but there is consensus among research professionals that polarization and the digital communication environment has had a direct impact.

Researchers today must be cognizant of both context and content in their methodology. For research to remain valid, this means that the mix between quantitative and qualitative techniques must be reconsidered. According to Jennifer, we need to better understand how to construct a survey question or approach a focus group properly.

This discussion has a profound impact on PR professionals who must rely on research to build and evaluate our programming. PRSA-IE is thrilled to bring in market research expert Jennifer Simmons to share critical insights on how we must advise our organizations on matters related to polling and research. Be a smarter counselor and join us for this enlightening discussion.
