The subject of Mark’s workshop is “Measuring Emotions”. It will take place on the 13th, with co-speakers Stephen Philips of Spring Research and Orlando Wood of Brainjuicer Labs.

The aim of this one-day workshop is to understand emotions in more detail: why emotions are a key factor in building strong bonds between brands and consumers ; why emotions are difficult to measure ; and which research methodologies to best use. The techniques covered will be quantitative and qualitative, and will include innovative new approaches such as neuromarketing. Participants will be asked to share their experiences.
