Panel: Is Your Data C-Suite Ready?
Transforming Insights into Market and Business Intelligence

Do you have difficulty turning data into market intelligence? Are you creating compelling stories that inspire action? Are you tailoring your report delivery to meet the needs of the c-suite, line management and front-line workgroups?

We'll present findings from a study conducted among senior insights execs and then follow-up with an informative panel discussion. We'll address challenges and share new approaches and success stories.

During our session, we will cover topics, such as:
