Research Effectiveness Awards 2014 Winners

03 October 2014

Shoe in for ‘RESEARCH NOW Supreme Award’ at Research Effectiveness Awards

Celebrating research effectiveness, the research industry came out en masse for its 2014 Awards with a glamorous evening at The Hilton on Friday. Keeping things adventurous, and Research Association members on-task, with his humorous MC style was comedian of the people, Leigh Hart aka ‘That Guy’. Joining Leigh and sponsors on-stage to dish out well-deserved Awards was Rob Bree, General Manager and Rob Clark, Chairman of the Research Association NZ. “This year’s event is one of the biggest and best we’ve had thanks to all our sponsors but also thanks to a fantastic number of entries showing excellent work coming out of the research industry in NZ,” says Clark.

Focus Research and Ziera won Platinum in the SSI Effectiveness in Consumer Products Research Category as well as taking out the ‘RESEARCH NOW Supreme Award’ for their entry “Embracing the Cinderella Moment”.

“It was a fantastic night for the industry overall with a wide variety and high standard of entries and winners. Contrary to popular opinion the industry proved its glamour status and partied on well into the wee small hours” Rob Bree, Research Association General Manager.
