The annual Significant Insights Global 30 Under 30 List aims to recognise the research, data, analytics and insight industry’s exceptional young talent; showcase their achievements and reward their drive, creativity and passion. All of this, making them ‘the ones to watch’ within our global sector.

2022 Global 30 Under 30 Honouree, LaShanda Seaman, who is a qualitative research manager at Opinium, and a recent new member of the Market Research Society (MRS) main Board, said: “I was delighted to make the 30 under 30 global list in 2022, and I’m hugely grateful for my colleagues for nominating me. It really was a fantastic moment in my career to cherish. Recognising and supporting our global sector’s next generation insight leaders is incredibly important and I encourage everyone to try and nominate at least one colleague under 30 who you think is a super star!”

Crispin Beale, one of this year’s judges, and Group President at Behaviorally, the 2023 headline supporters, commented: “The insights industry is packed full of new and up-and-coming superstars, yet sometimes we fail to champion and celebrate their amazing achievements. The 30 under 30 recognises the next generation of leaders in our profession and I am so proud that Behaviorally is helping shine a spotlight on them and to encourage everyone to nominate those around them who inspire them daily!”
