New Members

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

Two new members join MRBA Committee.  Virginia Monk is CEO of Network Research with a wealth of experience particularly in telephone research.  Her company operates several call centres and will be able to bring new insight to the issues relevant to telephone interviewers and help us to improve our offer to them.  We have also co-opted Mike Wooderson, Managing Director of Cobalt Sky.  As a leading supplier of IT services to the research industry, Mike brings a different perspective in relation to technical staff who we have previously had difficulty connecting with.
