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.

Jillian Roche, Isentia New Zealand and 30-Under-30 judge explains; “I love being a part of an initiative that helps younger analysts find their voice in an evolving, global insights industry. It takes our collective and concerted effort, to break the glass ceilings of age, gender, culture, ethnicity and socioeconomic backgrounds.”

OvationMR CEO and Significant Insights North American Board Member Jim Whaley had this to say: “Highlighting young talent in initiatives like Significant Insight’s Global 30-under-30 List is essential for the market research industry’s vitality. Yes indeed it’s about celebrating individual achievements, but perhaps more importantly about embracing fresh perspectives, driving positive change, and ensuring a diverse and dynamic future.”
