The Ginny Valentine Badge of Courage Awards 2015 Are Now Accepting Nominations!

     The Ginny Valentine Badge of Courage Awards are back and will be held at IIeX in Atlanta on June 16, 2015. The awards were launched in London in 2012 to recognize exceptional bravery in the market research industry, and to honor Ginny Valentine, a research revolutionary. Now in its 4th year, we are looking for new stories of bravery.  These could come from any part of the market research industry, from any country, from someone of any age or gender.  Variety is at the heart of these awards. Last year’s winners were selected for a wide range of brave acts including things like “Supporting Brave Creative Work,” “Courage in the Face of Adversity,” and “Disrupting the industry with the Development of Machine Learning for Analysis Research.”


     There is a perception that market research is a conservative industry, but the stories that have already been collected demonstrate the contribution the people in our industry are making to society.  Help us to unearth more awe-inspiring stories that make us proud of what we do. Nomination takes five to ten minutes by going to and the deadline for nominations is April 30th.

The Ginny Valentine Badge of Courage Awards will be held with the support of Greenbook, the Research Liberation Front, KL Communications and TNS.
