We are delighted to announce that FlexMR’s Maria Twigge (Research Director) and Amy Eborall (newly promoted Head of Insight) will be running an interactive workshop at the upcoming MRS Impact 2018 conference on Tuesday March 13th in London, alongside Elliott Johnson from the English Federation of Disability Sport.
Maria and Amy worked with the English Federation of Disability Sport to engage disabled groups in an online community to capture their feedback around the challenges of taking part in sport and physical activity. The findings and learnings from this study are pretty explosive. Participants from the study are coming along to tell you in their own words about the barriers for them to engage in sport. Attending this session will immerse you in their lived experiences.
Amy will share how she used her skills and expertise in online communities to facilitate sensitive conversations and get to the heart of the challenges.
Maria will walk delegates through some easy and simple exercises that bring the insights to life – the best way to get impact from your findings is to really put your audience into the shoes of your study participants. In this session Maria, Amy and Elliott have applied the findings of the study to the world of business and insight people and will use scenarios, discussion and exercises to maximise the impact of the study on all who attend.
