This year’s Judges hail from 17 different nations across six continents. They represent academia, enterprises, agencies, and associations, with approximately 40 percent previously receiving the Insight250 award and about 80 percent serving as Judges last year.
The panel will once again be chaired by Mark Langsford, CEO of mTab, and Kristin Luck, ESOMAR President.
We’re delighted to formally announce an impressive panel of judges who once again represent a diversity of expertise and experience from around the world and across our profession. These judges are the backbone of Insight250. They are critical to ensuring that the awards are a fantastic representation of the market research and insights industry’s accomplishments, direction, and future. It was important to us to add new judges for 2023 to keep the awards vibrant and as diverse and inclusive as possible.
Nearly 100 Country Representatives from ESOMAR will also, again, help oversee the nomination and selection process for their nations before the short-listed candidates are provided to the judges. Each judge will serve on a panel for their respective continent to select the honourees from that region. Full details of the judging process and criteria can be found at insight250.com.
