Up-skill, re-skill, and showcase
Recovery and Re-skilling
Editor's Note
As countries, states, provinces, and markets outline their reopening-for-business measures and regions begin to flatten the curve, we strive to bring you the best in industry news, education, professional development and career progression resources and opportunities. 
The marketing research industry is diverse and interdisciplinary. It is a privilege to look to the worlds of high-precision data modelling and epidemiology to learn about disease control and lessons on how to thrive in a health crisis, using historic, real-time and predictive data, while also borrowing perspective and semantics from the deep humanities. Sign up for our second webinar and understand some of the complex work being accomplished in the COVID-19 context by the impactful data scientists at Starschema. Further, find information on opportunities to showcase and grow your brand by becoming a sponsor for one of our upcoming webinars below.
