DETAILS: Getting Beyond "Once Upon a Time"
As Qualitative Researchers, we’ve always been storytellers. In recent years, storytelling has become a popular topic in market research reporting. Yet for many, it remains elusive. The call for storytelling is a call to move from a mere accounting of data to a presentation of meaningful information that will propel the client to action. This session will equip participants with techniques to weave a meaningful story for clients and their stakeholders. We’ll dig in to the three structural phases of the story: the set-up, development, and resolution — and she'll give you the tools to help you engage and communicate with your clients in each phase.
Kendall Nash is a lover of qualitative research and seeks to delight her clients by providing research and reports that do more than simply inform. As the leader of Burke’s qualitative practice and an instructor for the Burke Institute, she teaches others how to find unique ways to connect with people, and then demonstrates practical tips for how to truly bring learning to life in meaningful ways for clients. She embraces the opportunity she has to work with many different QRCs, putting her in a unique position to experience a wide range of approaches to reporting.
Kendall has also been involved with QRCA for many years, most recently as QRCA President from 2013 to 2014, and currently as Co-Chair of the upcoming 8th Biennial Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Research in Vienna, Austria (April 13-15, 2016). Kendall is also Co-Chair of the Membership Committee, and a founding member of the QRCA Young Professionals SIG.
