A new, highly energized and diversified program is turning the 2016 MRA Insights & Strategies Conference on its head. How?
More keynotes! To keep you inspired and talking. • Fewer breakout sessions! The speakers we do select will build your arsenal with practical take-aways. • Instructional workshops! Our skill-building workshops will make you a smarter researcher. • Time to breathe! We’ll leave time in the schedule so you can finish your sentence, grab a cafe' au lait and beignets, and commiserate before the next lesson starts.
ISC was designed to improve not only a researcher’s personal knowledge but their value to their organization as well...
Add in the best and brightest emerging technologies, more networking than ever before, and you have a new and different conference experience. One where you’re not herded like cattle, but find the personal and professional support you need to discover insights and strategies in a demanding but hopeful world.
